Off to Kenya tonight!

Finally going back to Africa but this time solo-

ZRH-ov-night enroute
NBO-Stanley

12 nts at 4 different Porini Camps:
Amboseli, Rhino, Mara, Lion although the last 3 may have to be changed to the Serena in Mombasa. At the end of the trip, I'll have one night at Giraffe Manor and a day room there also. Am only flying between camps and hope I'm not the only guest!

P.S
But you'll never be alone, with all that wildlife.Better than fickle or complaining humans I'd love it.

Have a great trip! Even if you are the only guest it will still be a blast and you won't have to share.;-)

Thanks all-I'm nervous now that I have no roommate to put in the bed closest to the tent door!

What may have to be changed to the Serena in Mombasa? The last 3 nights or the last 3 camps? Why?

Safari njema! Being the only guest is a plus.

Moremiles-
Enjoy!
Last year, seemed like Sundowner and I had Kenya to ourselves as most camps were almost empty then.

This year, I had a blast traveling solo to Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania! I never felt alone so no worries, someone will adopt you at meal times and at happy hour.

And if other tourists aren't around, then the staff will dote all over you to make you feel welcome.

Have a wonderful time!

I may be changing just the last 3nts at the Lion Porini for the Serena Mombasa-not because I want to really-other reasons.

Thanks all! The "secret" is not as enticing as you make it sound!

I can't believe your trip is finally here. Have a wonderful time. If you do end up being the only guest at a camp, that means you'll have a private vehicle you won't have to pay extra for. And you'll have the guides 100% undivided attention. Ditto for the chef/cook, the camp staff, and so on. They will spoil you rotten if you're the only guest!
