    Kenya Safari

    Well, what the hell.

    It's fun to share.

    I put this thread up on that otter forum and a short time later, it closed.

    So, sorry former arjarners, this is a repeat.


    In 2015, the wifey and I had signed up for a Kenyan safari and were not disappointed.

    Here's the trek:

    Males are total loners most of the year. Strutting their stuff out in some little backwater.

    The elusive black rhino.

    This shot took over an hour (about 50 snaps) and this is the best I could get.

    Royal Mara Safari Lodge, I believe.

    Accoms were all a part of the package, so we just went with the flow and, I gotta' say....each place we stopped was fan-freekin-tastic!

    One night was in "executive tents."

    Time for a coffee break.


    Our guide (opposite me) was tops. Full of knowledge about history, people, weather, topography and of course could name every bit of flora and fauna seen and unseen.
