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.
