Hi Simbakubwa. Our favorite Camp was Tortilis. Just a first class operation all around. But our favorite drives were at Governors because we could go off road. All of our accommodations were great, but Tortilis just had that something extra. Between Amboseli and Samburu? To be truthful, all of the parks we went to each had it's own specialness. That is why I researched before and decided on all of the parks we visited. Only regret is that we didn't go to the Rhino park and the Flamingo park. Next time. Hard to pick one highlight when just seeing the first Zebra gave me the shivers. But If I had to pick it would be the Migration. Then it would be watching the Lions play (after an afternoon rain) then of course the Elephants so close you could almost touch them. Then just the realization that I WAS IN AFRICA. And then the Hippo Pool at Ngorongoro. One of them actually laid on his back for several minutes. Just wanted to rub his belly

Thanks for the response!

Fodorites seem to always be torn between Amboseli vs. Samburu. Looks like you are too!

Glad you had such a good time!

Awesome pics. I saw them all.
Thanks for sharing. I plan on taking 3-4000 pics so will have to try for 600 here I guess.
I leave for Kenya in 5 months today.
Your pics just get me more excited and anxious to start the trip.

Thanks for sharing your photos. I, too, looked at all of them. Tortilis was the first camp I ever stayed at in Africa and seeing your photos brought back that memorable time. It really is a special place.

Dear Max69 Take as many as you want. Don't limit yourself. I will never limit myself again. Although I can't see me taking that many photos on our next vacation. The Dairy Queen in West Bend, WI (still trying to pay off this trip) The 5 months will go by so quickly. Where are you going?
