Thank you @TonyQ 

 

And apologies for the poor quality of the writing in the last post ... in every sense. It was really a rush job and it is more than ironic that the reason it is so rushed is that I was busy running a training course today and had much less time than expected at lunch  The irony? The topic was written communication skills for new managers. Ha! 

 

I think I'll have to add one more post just so there isn't such a pathetic ending! :huh:

Such a shame this has come to an end.  I have really enjoyed reading along, the stories so amusing and well told and the pictures as always are all stunning.

I too am sad that your TR has come to an end, @pault  That is an unfortunate end but what a sighting in NNP!

 

I follow a group of Supporters of Nairobi National Park on Facebook and they're routinely posting photos of idiots like the one you describe, usually locals who think they are immune to any sort of attack by wildlife.  I don't get it.

 

Thank you for sharing your stories and most excellent photos!

I just finished Bibi and the genet, or perhaps the leopard and then Bibi and the sandals.  I'm just glad no Bibis were hurt in the making of.  Striped hyena!  Yay!  That crowned crane would make a perfect photo book cover.

 

It's those morning exercises on the airstrip that are her secret.  And who can argue with success!?

 

Your star shot looks great.  It was worth all the drinks to get it.  Love your myth busters, celebrity name dropping in all.

 

You spotted a zorilla and a tiny leopard cub!  You've earned your Junior Ranger status for sure.

Looking forward to the rest of your adventures!

 Enjoyed the shocking secret Bibi tale.  Like mother, like son!  The most shocking part is that Bibi was likely not shocked at all. We hit a bird once on landing in a small plane, but it hit the windshield.  Certainly got my attention.  Wonderful sightings big and small.  You did a great job on the lion kill in the rain. 

 

Thanks for the primer on rutting, in the plains and the restaurant.  Lion kill in NBO Nat Park is more than you could ever hope for.  Hope the lion population there can thrive. Antics like that guy out of his car might threaten the poor cats cuz if they attacked him they'd probably be killed.  Your BFF silhouette is amazing, like your whole trip!

You noticed my spots @Atravelynn Indeed I am proud, as with the instant ID of the Oribi to come. Junior Ranger sounds like something awarded to someone who goes on safari with his Mum... Oh!!!  

 

And like mother like son is a scary comment, except that I hear a chorus of "you should be so lucky!"

And if you are Junior Ranger, what does that make Bibi?

Has Bibi seen this or perhaps she was the Editor in Chief!?

Just finished up, and what a delightful report in every way, from the engaging narrative to the nonstop beautiful photos. So glad you got your wildebeest crossing shot, but there are so many others that are also  memorable "keepers."  Thanks for sharing this with us.

Bibi is rarely browsing the internet nowadays. I'd have to turn it into a pdf and send it to her i trhink - and that would be asking for trouble, as hte feeling would be I created for her. I told her a couple of the stories from after she left though. Best to stick with the picture biook I think.

You can't go wrong with a picture book, especially with your fine photos!  Where to next?
