Return from Africa

I have been absent from my blog for a while. I just returned from a 10 day safari in Africa and it was the most amazing trip I have ever done.

Elephant Wak

The first part of our trip was spent in Amboseli National Park in southeast Kenya.

Amboseli National Park is known for its elephants. According to our guide, there are 27 different herds of elephants within the park. Amboseli is very dry and dusty. The word Amboseli is the Maasai word for “salty dust.” Every morning the elephants (and other animals) will walk miles to get to the marshes to wallow in the water and mud and eat. At the end of the day, they all walk back “home.” These elephants were walking just outside the lodge where we were staying.

Our safari was a photographic safari with Wild-Eye. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

  1. I’ve now visited African wildlife parks three times – Uganda, Tanzania and, earlier this year, Namibia (plus a couple of day each in Zambia and Botswana). There’s a magic about the place and I long to go back. Though obviously one gets a very distorted view of what it’s like to live in the great continent.

  2. Gosh . . . I’m hoping you took more than three photos. The trip sounds nice. I was reading all the ones they offer. It looks like you have to plan almost two years in advance (October of 2020 is nearly sold out).

      1. That’s what I’m looking at as well because 2020 already has certain limitations and other plans.

        We’ll see.

        . . . and, only 10,000? Gosh, did you run out of memory cards? Did you hurt your shooting finger? Temporary blindness?

I'd love to hear from you
