We went on an evening safari and saw some amazing sunsets over the savannah grasslands …

... from a home knitting operation to a gin mill. Although Calen was tempted, no one was brave enough to taste the home brew. We did, however, taste Rashida's delicious tea and purchased some spices and popcorn. Next we met Janepher, a mother of two, who wants to expand her local food business. We squeezed into her "kitchen", a dirt floor alley behind her tin box stall, and ...

... on his own. Even though he had all this turmoil going on his life we and 30 other kids had an amazing time kicking around a soccer ball. I didn't want to leave. If I had had the opportunity, I'd probably still be there. But all good things come to an end and after a sad goodbye, we split.

Yet another early morning departure to Queen Elizabeth. We travelled via Fortportal where we stopped for some lunch and I had an ice latte after 5 months, which was heavenly delicious and I felt for a moment I was in heaven, until Mark and Kathy made me down it! We reached Mweya in QENP at midday, with stunning beautiful views over Kazinga Channel. We went for a late afternoon drive with ...

Then he would feign lying down whilst the younger one came closer to prod him with his trunk and the older would sit up suddenly and trumpet just as the younger male's trunk was about to touch him. Scared the bejeezus out of the young one who rushed backward into the water, splashing madly whilst the older one rolled into the water after him.

    Simba Safari camp has very nice rooms that are set in a deserty oasis type feel with gardens and lots of trees on the property. The staff is friendly and accommodating especially when the power was lost due to a storm and they gave us free coffees in the lodge. Just really nice people! The rooms are clean, comfortable and the shower was fantastic!
