A troika of iconic Trip Reports on SafariTalk

24 posts in this topic

Three iconic trip reports active at the same time. Without taking anything away from the scores of wonderful trip reports on SafariTalk, these are amongst the finest I have had the pleasure to savor. Thanks to @@twaffle, @@Paolo, @@Safaridude and @@africapurohit (whose report continues!) for sharing your seminal experiences!

Thanks @@AKR1 I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel - 20 days completed, 6 more days to report on. Mkomazi and Tarangire were summarised but doing the day-by-day accounts of the 17 days in Katavi and Serengeti has been harder work.

Classic ST.

 

I bet they will even improve with aging, becoming vintage ST Trip Reports :rolleyes:

Couldn't agree more! These 3 reports have been just amazing. Just cannot get myself to write another TR after seeing such stellar effort! What I loved was that the writing style of all 4 has been very different from each other as is the photography but everything is such high quality!

As a member of The Order of the Pith, I expect you to be setting a better example... ;)

Definitely.

 

If she persists, @@Anita may run the risk of being de-pithed...correct, @@Game Warden?

@@Anita

 

Since I know your creativity I am working hard on the possible meaning of the acronym BS (I am sure it is different from what everybody may think...)

you are correct @@Paolo

 

Now coming back to the Outstanding Work, I think we should send these 4 on a safari together - Imagine that Magnum Opus.

@@Anita, happy to oblige! But I remain disappointed that you cannot or will not take time in your busy schedule to share some details and pictures of your presumably amazing adventures.

I agree. It could be a BB otherwise.

 

I have been on safari with @@Safaridude and @@twaffle, just missing @@africapurohit.....

Great idea @@Anita - that means I'll have three baby-sitters if Niyam comes along!

 

Even better, I'll bring all three boys and you can have one each :D

absolutely - each one of them gets 1 boy and you and GW get Twaffle's 200-400 and 1dx and Safaridude's 300 f2.8 ;) How fair is that!

 

And ofcourse Paolo's Swarovski as well. Dont need them when you have to look after kids sitting right next to you.

The older two are easy to look after. The little one will try to get out of the vehicle and bite a lion!

Thank you for such a nice recommendation but I think like many things, the last few read are always the brightest in one's mind. At the moment I am lacking time to read anything much, let alone some of the wonderful and on going reports, but I'll get there.

 

I can also confirm that Paolo and his father would both be excellent baby sitters of the boys, they seem naturals with children.

For shame. She took her pith and ran...says the member who has not yet posted installment #1 from her Sept trip.
