  2. @Geoff...great photographic puppies! Then, to view the wild dog and hyena interaction...there is almost nothing quite like it. It's both exciting and frightening with sounds to match.

  12. @Zim Girl....very sorry to hear about Ben, Have a loving weekend with him. We can wait.
  13. We were in Vietnam earlier this year. I asked two different guides the same question after first stating that they did not have to answer me if they did not want to. I questioned them about the ivory that comes into Vietnam. The first guide said that "no it does not happen". The second, "yes it does". I do not know if the first guy thought he would give me the answer that I wanted, or was just in denial.
  14. @vikramghanekar...great photos with beautiful light!

  17. @Ginny ...take a look at the Bushcamp Co camps in SNLP. They are small and we have had great game viewing in the area.
  18. @vikramghanekar..WOW! how exciting to see this action with dogs
  19. @Tallybalt...when we get our travel insurance, we must book it within 30 days of making our trip deposit. We use Travel Guard. Surprise this time is that if you live in California the rates are better. Your price seems high.
  20. @philw...and have a great time!
  21. Oh dear....We all travel differently, where we like to go, how to travel, and how much to spend. The most important thing in booking a trip to Africa is to have someone who understands what you want, and will take care of you in getting you in and out of the best camps for you. I occasionally read TA to see what is going on in certain camps. But, I am also in the "Grain of Salt" camp. What did it was the time I read someone's report on Duba Plains. When they were there, the buffalo had gone across the channel. They wanted to know why their travel agent would book them there when the buffalo would not be there. ST is really the best site to visit for our safari reviews.
  22. @philw....when you get to Tena Tena please say hi to Bertram. First trip, first camp and first guide ten years ago. We were there again two years ago.
  23. @BieneMaja...thanks for the trip report and the great photos. You did it right by taking a longer trip so to get to the outer islands. We did it when I was still taking photos with film....a long time ago. Love those Sally Lightfoot Crabs!
  24. @janzin...okay another comment. Two years ago we were in SLNP the end of August/early September and it was very, very hot. More years ago we were in South Zambezi and had one very cold evening. I wore my long underwear and we had hot water bottles in bed. I no longer take long underwear but I always have a couple of long sleeve tees and a lightweight fleece top as well as a fleece vest. The weather..... who knows?! I bet you do not wear your fleece.
