Trip booked - will provide trip report in December! Kenya/Tanzania/Rwanda

Hello! I'm so excited that my parents, brother and I are going back to Africa after our "trip of a lifetime" in 2007. I wanted to share our itinerary with you all and provide a write-up for anyone interested after we return. We trolled the forums a bit in planning this one, so thank you all for your write-ups, information and advice!

We are leaving mid-November, returning in the beginning of Dec.

Bert from Fish Eagle Safaris helped us with this one, and the 2007 trip. Great experiences with them!

Day 1: Depart SFO

Day 2: Arrive Amsterdam, spend one night there. Get out into the sun (hopefully) check out a museum or two, shower, sleep.

Day 3: Arrive Kilimanjaro
- 1 night KIA Lodge

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater
- Road transfer from KIA Lodge to Plantation Lodge. Overnight at Plantation Lodge for 2 nights on Full Board basis.
- Afternoon game drive to Lake Manyara National Park.

Day 5: Ngongoro Crater
- Full day crater outing with picnic on crater floor.

Day 6: fly to NBO, fly to Masaai Mara
- 5 nights Mara Intrepids Tented Camp

Day 11: fly to Chyulu Hills: Campi ya Kanzi
- 5 nights Campi ya Kanzi

Looks like a great trip. You've given me incentive to get going on my report before you're back and writing one.

PerpetualStudent, yes, please do a report and post some photos if you can! I am hoping to get to Rwanda next May. But most of all have a wonderful time.
