I've come back to view this trip report again... and love it all over again!  Wish I could re-like the posts!

 

How does one look at the EXIF information?  I'd love to study your technique. :)

 

The easiest way is to install an "exif reader" in your browser.  I use a Firefox Add-on called FxIF but there are others. Similarly for Chrome. (If you use a Mac, I have no idea.)

ST "tells" me this topic is quite old, and I should not bother posting here. But I just read your TR from start to finish now, and I am amazed. Wow, loved all the sightings and the spectacular photos! 

Yes, I started reading this in preparation (hopefully) for a trip to either Kenya or Tanzania, or maybe a mix of both in 2022. Covid pushed everything a year later. In any case, I thought a river crossing was high on my list, and after reading your TR I realized it's not, for all the reasons you mentioned: the long wait, the crowds, the suffering. I know I would not bear sitting next to anyone rooting for the croc, so thank you! Not only for the delight your photos brought to me, but the enlightenment brought by your words and thoughts.

Yay - will give it a read.  We are booked for Jan 2022 for Amboseli and the Mara, fingers crossed we can go (right now we are not allowed to leave Australia).
