Kenya 2016 - Preview

We just got back and I am still going through all the photos/video, but as a preview:

  • Business class is definitely the way to go if it takes 16 hours flying time to get to your destination
  • We got upgraded to really spectacular lodgings in the middle of our trip -- thanks Odyssey Safaris!
  • We arrived late in the Great Migration, but did get to see one of the river crossings.
  • I inadvertantly got a few x-rated nature videos this time around.
  • Gnu puns abound.

Your cast for this trip are:
  • Stepmonster (your humble narratrix)
  • The World's Greatest Husband (her devoted mate)
  • Jane (Stepmonster's friend and fellow traveller)
  • Angi (Stepmonster's friend and fellow traveller)

Who we travelled with:

Odyssey Safaris -- I contacted them about a year ago with an itinerary proposal, and they arranged everything.
Swiss Air -- Flights were booked through them - actual carriers were Air Canada, Swiss Air,  and Lufthansa.
Safari Park Hotel -- Nairobi
Ashnil Hotels -- Buffalo Springs Reserve and the Maasai Mara.
Serena Hotels -- Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Sarova Hotels -- Lake Nakuru and the Maasai Mara.

And one picture to whet your appetite:
