On our recent exploration in central Kenya, we had the good fortune to spend an extended period in several of the stronghold conservancies, that have quite literally resurrected the two African species in East Africa. It was a return to the heady rhino viewing of those first years in Kruger and gave us a rare opportunity to observe both species, revived, relaxed and in close proximity.
In the far North of Tanzania and stretching a good way into Kenya, the Greater Serengeti Ecosystem spans a vast thirty thousand square kilometres. A thriving wilderness, pristine and teeming with wildlife, this jewel adorning Mama Africa between the arms of her Great Rift Valley is truly an icon to behold and revere.
In early May of this year Jana and I had the immense good fortune to undertake a little exploration in Zambia. It was a fact finding mission visiting three national parks over fourteen nights and unwittingly, during the adventure, we fell head over heels in love with the Lower Zambezi National Park.
To our dear friends out there in cyberspace, I trust this finds you all hale and hearty?
It’s been too long indeed and this has been a matter of hot debate in our rather mobile household. Particularly so, when approaching the topic of resuscitating this blog. I was of the opinion we could just get cracking with a yarn or two from out in the sticks accompanied by a jaunty picture of me in my khakis. Jana, however, felt our outrageously long absence required, at the very least, some acknowledgement. Even if we are found wanting when it comes to an assortment of believable explanations.
