Hello,

 

I have just booked a trip to Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania next year and stumbled across this great resource.  This will be my first "real" safari, not counting a mission trip to Kenya in 1996 when I spent one night at The Ark and a vacation to Sun City in 2001 where we did short game drives from the hotel.  I have also taken up photography as a hobby since those trips, so this will be my first trip where I hope to take some pictures worth sharing.

 

I am sure that I will have many questions for all of you experienced safari-goers.  I will try to search for answers before asking, but apologies in advance if I do ask something that has been answered many times before.

 

Regards,

Cliff

@cjt3 I've found that this sight has altered my life. I have learned so much from it and made so many friends.

@cjt3 Welcome to safaritalk. Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania is a great trip and this is a great place to while away those months until the trip comes around!
