Hi Kavey,

I'm glad you finally reached Kennedy. He's quite reliable, so I'm sure he will take good care of you in Nairobi. I'll be at Ngorongoro Sopa on Sept. 13 - 14; when will you be there? Our group is then proceeding on to the Northern Serengeti and our own mobile tented camp. Perhaps we'll cross paths; look for two Kibo vehicles. I'm looking forward to taking 10 "newbies" on safari to Tanzania, arriving the 8th.

Alejandra, thank you for your well wishes. Will try and pass the messages on if we see those individuals.

Shaytay, we're in the Sopa 8th September... looks like there are quite a few near misses in terms of Fodorite GTGs...

Shay Tay - we will be in your same area around the same time with our OAT trip. I calculate we will be at the Ng Farmhouse 9/14 & 9/15 then onto their Mobile Tents in the Serengeti until 9/20. Any hooks there with your group?

I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait...

But I'm not ready, I'm not ready, I'm not ready...

What a mess of contradictions I am!

It has taken a long time.... have a great time (and getting another Kavey trip report will be very nice to read, indeed...).

Safari njema, Kavey!

Maybe we'll cross paths? We'll be in Samburu (Larsen's) 20th-21st & the Mara (Nyumbu Camp & Serena) 25th-30th!

Just look for 2 couples with HUGE smiles are their faces. That will be us!!

We're all packed!
The main cargo bags weigh 9 kilos each. Which is just as well since the two camera rucksacks (our handluggage) weigh almost the same each!

EEek!

Enjoy your trip, Kavey! I know what you mean about those heavy camera bags; mine is always heavier than my clothes bag. I'm sure you'll enjoy meeting Kennedy. One thing he asked me was if I had any magazines from back home. If you've got a couple lying around, throw them in for him and Val, his wife. I'm sure they would appreciate them.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look. I don't really buy magazines apart from travel ones and I keep those for future reference.
Did he mention any preferences in subject material?

Not really. I think they would enjoy any magazine you might have.
