  1. Congratulation to the wild dogs @pault. Thanks very much for showing us your incredible pics and the nice writing around them.
  2. @Kitsafari have you ever thought about a FZ1000 or so as a second camera? There is not so much different to the FZ200 in using. I have both but now use the FZ1000 for 99% of my pics. In the beginning you will struggle a bit with the lesser zoom but you can have a cropp afterwards.
  3. @atravelynn it's very nice to follow you through Ethiopia. Thanks very much for your detailed report. What does your Guides say about Somali Wild Ass in Ali Deghe?
  4. Wonderful reading. Thanks @pault for taking us on top of Mt. Ololokwe. I'm with you with all your feeling on the hike and when I think about our next trip to Ethiopia I can just see my face will be more red than yours.
  5. Oh @pault I'm sure you had a big adventure with Zarek + Vincent. Nice to read a new report. Thanks for getting started.
  6. Thanks for the start of your trip report. I was still waiting of this because we are going to Ethiopia on August 30. Can't wait for the next part.
  7. This forum made my dream to see and feel Lake Turkana reality in 2016. The inspiration of this forum will bring me and my husband in 2018 for our first time to India. A big thanks @Matt for this forum and to all this nice active members too. SafariTalk is a never ending source of travel ideas.
  8. @@Kitsafari Thanks so much for another nice report on Zakouma. In the moment I'm very much attracted by the idea of going one day by myself to Chad (Zakouma and Ennedi) and see all this beauty with my own eyes. Tinga plus camping would be my preferred option for Zakouma. I hope there will be a way to do it like this in the future.
  9. @Paolo @inyathi @Michael Lorentz Thanks so much for this wonderful report, the beautiful pictures and all this amazing background informations. It was an fantastic reading. I really hope that we don't need to wait too long to get a glimp on Anita's new pics of Zakouma 2017.
  10. @@Sangeeta I think it's a very good compromise what you offer. Unfortunately for this time of 2018 we have another plan. I really hope that you can find a solution for 2019 to continue with this kind of trips to Zakouma. If so please let me know.
  11. Oh @@Caracal it's not a very special report it's only a report of places very seldom visited. Thanks so much for the flowers. After we was there and I read the book "Journey to the Jade See" I can't imagin how to do this journey by feed. I would die after the second day. I hope one day you will see this beauty by your one. I'm sorry that my english is too bad for a trip report in english and all of you has to strangle with the google translation. From this trip we only have three little video. I like to put this as the end to this topic for all of you but not sure if it will work. They all from Mara Triangle. Thanks Christa
  12. @@tony Busaga be happy to get every year enough guests how can affort your luxury serves. Could you imagine that there are people around the world how would realy like to see Zakouma on times in there live but looking for an affordable price. I don't talk about backpacking. Maybe you can't imagin. We had 6 wonderful nights in Liuwa in 2012 without a top end lodge. Basic camping in the community camps. We took a ranger from African Parks with us. This guy uses to work with Herbert Brauer for "The last Lioness". He was as fantastic as every top end Guide could be. Maybe nowadays with using for your exclusive rich guests the new top end lodge you would be for sure very afraid to see us on your game drive. Basic Camping means we look sometimes a bit dirty. We don't take care about but we loved this place as much as you guest love it.
  13. @@pault thanks so much for bringing an absolutely unknown piece of earth closer to me. The Great Hornbill pics are so nice. An amazing bird I only saw on times in a zoo. Safaritalk brings every day nature around the globe in my living room and give me ideas of new travel destinations. I hope we'll have a few more years to see a bit more from this wonderful world.
  14. @kittykat23uk you can go for your gorilla trek to Uganda. I don't think that Uganda will follow with this increas. Uganda has much more to offer than only Gorillas for a complete safari in this country. To me it looks like the consequence that a lot of scheduled tours from Uganda did the Gorilla trek in Rwanda because they couldn't get for example 8 permits for one starting point in Uganda for the same day. But they got it in Ruanda. As we where tolt from our guide in Uganda in 2014 Rwanda wasn't that strict in the number of tourists. Sometimes in the past they did a second trek to the same gorilla family on a single day.
  15. @@Chakra thanks so much for this trip report. It is so interesting to learn from you about a very special area from India especially as I'm just planning a longer trip to India for 2018.
