June 1, 2009: Making plans for Africa
I have been busy making the plans for my trip to Kenya, which are now
almost complete. Flights and travel arrangements are booked, only one
more vaccination to go (yellow fever) and I am just awaiting the return
of my visa application from the Kenyan High Commission in London. I
have taken the opportunity make a small extension to my time in Kenya to
go on a safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve in the hope of
visiting some of the Masai tribes' people villages but also some of the
many varieties of animals in their natural habitat. Hopefully I will
also see some the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle as
they cross from the plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania.
I have been getting some tips and advice from a former colleague who now
lives in Nairobi. We are looking forward to meeting up for a meal after
the expedition as I travel back through Nairobi on my way back home.
Thanks to Gustavo for arranging a conference call between all the
members of our team (Bronwyn and Timothy) where we were able to introduce
ourselves and exchange some tips and advice for our expedition. Not
such an easy task considering the difference in time zones between
Europe, Australia and Suriname.
