Word up, homies

 

Just laid down to sleep. All i saw today was a bat as we left the plane and walked up the open-air gangplank into the terminal.

 

Currently spending the night at Country Lodge, Nairobi. Tomorrow on to the 2 N's: Nakumatt and Naivasha.

Deffo when I get back, GW. But, where I have internet I'll try my best to sort it out!

 

Hold on...... You saying you don't believe me?

 

P.S. for those interested, I was technically in Burundi a few hours ago.

All right Super Leeds! We'll be in the Mara on Saturday assuming all goes as planned! Have a Tusker for me.

Hi SL,

 

Just five days at Kichwa Tembo and then off to the Seychelles for a few days (as my wife has always wanted to go there so I'll just have to "suffer"!). We'll return and have a day/night in Nairobi and check out the national park and giraffe center. Some day we'll all met up at the same camp!! Where are you staying in the Mara? Where ever it is have a great time!

Fauna count: 1 bat

 

Yes, impressive spotting right off the plane. Auspicious sign I think.

I love the technical layovers for the bragging rights. Burundi is too cool!

 

Paul, you meant 'impressive spotting right off the bat', didn't you :D

You are developing pretty impressive pun-spotting skills yourself!

Sopa Naivasha today. Lots seen. Waterbuck, zebra, thommies, giraffe (masai and reticulated), beautiful, enthralling colobus monkeys and buffalo. Becoming a birder so would like to say seen lots of those too! Superb starling, fish eagle, african hoopoe and finch lovebirds to name the faves.

 

Kigio tomorrow :)

Is this something about you becoming a birder? I'm thinking it is sports talk.

 

You've seen my fav--the Hoopoe.

As much as I hope that you are correct, GW...I think that the only trophy that England will win during our lifetime, is the one we won in '66.

 

We may get to the semi's, but that is as far as we will go this year.

 

But I have to say that we could be a force come 2014 in Brazil. I do like the young talent that's coming through though. The best in decades IMHO!!

Hi Twaffle, yes sports I'm afraid. Means I've totally forgotten about the major football tournament England are currently playing in.

 

LF, take your negativity off of my thread :P

 

Forgot to mention, I had a fleeting glimpse of a thin, green snake swimming on Lake Naivasha before vanishing on the land. The boatman said it was a green mamba.... I told the wife I doubted it, thinking they were arboreal (?). I was the one to see it too. Lots of lovely pied kingfishers and hundreds of pelicans.

Mags, I'll kiss a yellow-fever acacia for you. Nothing says Africa quite like them.

 

Birders: is it finch lovebirds or Fischer's? May have miss heard our Crescent Island guide. My east african birding app says the latter. Asante sana.

arboreal? You are becoming a birder! :D

 

Should be Fischer's

Big time :lol:

 

Just at Kigio Wildlife Conservatory today where a bush walk and night drive is the order of the day. Saw zebra, reticulated giraffe, eland and impala all on the way in. Dik diks on the early morning stroll at sopa naivasha as well a nice giraffe encounter.
