  1. Thanks Pam!
  2. Glad to see you back Jochen!
  3. Glad I'm not the only one who goes on safari with a point & shoot! Pop tarts on safari?
  4. Excellent photos and a wonderful beginning...can't wait to hear more!
  5. Good to know Kingfisher - thanks for posting!
  6. What a great story - thank you for sharing it with us!
  7. There's tons of valuable information and inspiration from trip reports found here! Altho the horrible Canadian loonie made me have to cancel this years safari the choice of 2 Porini camps in the Mara was based on trip reports here. Selous & Ruaha & Kwihali for future also came from TRs here.
  8. Thanks for taking the time to write this trip report as I've enjoyed following along. What a bummer your vehicle broke down a 2nd time and a guide on social media is simply unacceptable! Would be interested in photos of the camps & tents if you happen to take any.
  9. This is such a joy to read and your photo sequences allow me to feel, at least for the moment like I'm actually there. I felt Fig's pain sitting in that tree - such expression in his face! Your capture of the cheetah in flight is amazing!! Did you request your own vehicle or just got lucky as has happened to me several times when travelling solo.
  10. Is there such a thing as too many cheetah? Reading this with much interest and even more envy as I had planned a safari to Porini Mara & Lion camps for this June but had to cancel when the Canadian loonie tanked increasing the cost by 47%. Fingers crossed things will look better in 2017 and in the meantime I have your wonderful trip report to enjoy! Would also like to hear your thoughts on Porini accommodations etc. Thanks bettel!
  11. Wonderful report & photos Julian! Thanks so much for taking the time. Am currently researching Selous & Ruaha myself so am really looking forward to your next installments. Keep it comin'!
  12. Love seeing Himba walking down the street with the other 2 girls in their trendy cuffed jeans!! Such an interesting contrast. Your night shot is gorgeous! Looking forward to more.
  13. I love those small planes!! Yes it can be tricky getting into the 4 seaters but once in you can't get a better view.
  14. Welcome Hannah! I can so relate to thoughts of a safari giving respite from reality. 😊 Quite an incredible first couple of outings for you! The photography lessons definitely paid off. Looking forward to more!
  15. Wouldn't the elephants found in Etosha be classified as desert elephants as well? Have seen "desert" elephants around Grootberg and eles in Etosha and would be hard pressed to tell the difference.
