So my next Tanzania trip is becoming a reality...

I have received today an invite from my Maasai friend to stay with his family this September.

Photos can be seen of him at

This is in order to attend some of his school celebrations and more importantly be a part of his traditional tribal celebrations.

He lives in the Manyara area of TZ, close to the NP, the nearest large town being Mto Wa Mbu. So hopefully I will have time to squeeze in some game viewing, mind you with the remoteness of his village I might not even have to leave his boma to see lions!

So now does the planning begin, I suppose first thing is to upgrade my Nikon FM2n to a digital SLR with the wildlife in mind. And you know, I've already got this excited anticipation feeling in my stomach. Roll on September!

Now, Air Kenya flight to Nairobi, Precision Air to Kilimanjaro, transit to Arusha, bus from the bus station north...
