OMG!! let me tell you, africa was amazing!!
this trip went above and beyond and surpassed all my expectations...and believe me my expectations were very high. every moment was filled with magic, wonder, beauty, laughter, surprises and joy!
we had 3 of the very best guides throughout the entire trip and they graciously answered every single question we had about animals, the people of kenya, the government, their lives and experiences and so much more. we stayed at 4 fabulous tented camps with deluxe accommodations throughout kenya. i found all the people that we encountered to be the nicest, happiest and friendliest people ever. and the other participants in the trip (15 of us all together) were such fun people, so we laughed till our sides ached! the food was to die for, especially the desserts...yummy!! AND THE ANIMALS...OMG...the animals!! every time we had an awesome animal encounter, we all said nothing else could possibly top that...and the next time or two out...bam...another absolutely incredible encounter.
some of the words that come to mind when i think of everything we experienced on this trip are: awe, magical, extraordinary!
no other words could express how astonishing this trip was to me...it is by far one of the very best adventures of my life and i am soooooo grateful for it!! and i wanna do it all over again!! right now!
and as our wonderful leader val said to us in her kenyan/british accent over and over to us...you are sooooooooooooooo lucky, that was ammmmaaaazzzziiinngggg!! i agree fully!!
this was just some of the highlights from our two day stay at amboseli national park at the tortilis tented camp...next up lewa downs wildlife Conservancy.
