  4. after looking at this thread started looking at my pictures lake nakuru is probably one of my favourite places .tried to attach some pictures not sure if i can remember how.
  5. Hi we went to meru in 2013 we stayed at ilkeweta .safari lodge.little camp huge tents.just outside park .not a problem though only us in park.
  6. There was a really old lion at nukuru thst used to lie in the tree .believe hed been there for years .
  7. About 14 i think in lake nakuru in feb 2013.all lounging around under a tree.
  8. Padded swivel seats .with footrest cause i quite often cant reach the floor.box in the middle for cameras etc .i know some posh camps already have this.

  10. Everybody knows i am going on safari i get like a child waiting for xmas .usually packed weekend before .then will look at bag and unpack and remove half the stuff i have put in there.
  11. @@JD5000 That would ruin anyone's safari experience... @Gamewarden I Know its like a give and take challenge in our house i want to just do safari and hubby wants other places as well which would be great if we were rich strangely though i seem to always find the cash for my addiction .j
  12. Kenya feb 2011 kenya feb 2012 kenya feb 2013 south africa may 2014 south africa may 2015. in response to another question what would ruin my safari experience. Easy not being able to go .
  13. just caught up with this thread apologies if i haven't kept up .got a bit sidelined by the fact that i ended up persuading hubby to go back to south Africa been back 3 weeks now .but were off to Cambodia in November so going to have a good look at all the recommendations as hubby turned into a serious twitcher this time away .
  14. think wi fi should be limited to reception area for a few hours in the day time .when we go on safari for like 18 day this time it was nice to check on the kids a couple of times as our phones just never worked except for one day when we got a perfect signal whilst sitting watching a leopard and the phone was beeping with hundreds of messages until my husband remembered how to switch it off . (my hubby uses his phone to video much better at it than me on my camera before somebody says why did he have it on him.)
  15. Just got back yesterday from timbavati south africa.saw the wild dogs on thursday we were at kambaku safari lodge we saw about 12 dogs part of a big group then saw them again later running along the river bed and through tanda tula lodge.
