    This lodge provided perhaps our top experience in terms of accommodations during this tour. The watering hole just across from the tents, and the abundant wildlife, make it an exciting place to stay. Many of us wondered why go out on safari at all? Just let the animals come to us, as we sit and enjoy coffee and drinks at the bar. Our favorite moment was the parade of 16 elephants of all ages, followed closely by the sight of tall giraffe spreading their front legs far enough (the splits) in order to get their long necks down low enough to take a drink!

    Owen woke me at 4:30 am. It was quite a noisy night--baboons barking at about 3:30 and something unidentified making a lot of noise very near our tent at 4:00. Owen and I left shortly before 6:00 am to watch the sunrise over the waterhole on a crisp and clear morning. Giraffe, Ibis, cranes and the ever present waterbuck were at the watering hole, …

    Left the Mountain Lodge at 9:00 am. We stopped at the equator where the Coriolis effect was demonstrated with a bucket, a home-made funnel and a match stuck. Water drained with a clockwise motion in the Northern hemisphere, and a counter clockwise motion in the Southern. You only had to move about 40 feet to see the effect. Directly in the equator …

    ... itself is a beautiful building, we sit outside and order. I am amazed at the difference from a few minutes ago. There is indeed money in Kenya but it seems that only a few have access to it. Just found out why the airport looks like a multi-story car park......because it is!! Arrivals burnt down in November so now they use the car park till the new one is ...

    Finally we left at around 8:30, it was so sad to see the back of Ulamba but at the same time was so rewarding. I knew it would take a long time to get to our final destination of Blue Line so I started to relax. Relaxing wasnt posible throughout this journey! I was sat at the back left seat of the minibus, if you imagine the only way I could leave was through the side window. For the maximum capacity of ...
