I agree with you. I was there back in 1982 and stayed in tents. Tour guide was Abercrombie & Kent.

In our group there was only 7 of us, and we stayed at the Maasai Mara camp. The last day we were in a balloon over the Mara. Yes, the entire trip was with A&K. I later went to Tanzania. When we arrived into Nairobi, we stayed at the Norfolk Hotel. We also visited the Mount Kenya Safari club, started by William Holden. The entire trip took six weeks.

We were in Tanzania (Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater) in 2007.

Agreed, trip of a lifetime. It was the great migration and birthing season.

One highlight was watching six wildebeest births in a span of 15 minutes one morning...if the newborn isn't up and walking in 10 minutes, the mother leaves. They all walked.

The other "highlight" was breaking my foot on the only night we were in a lodge, rather than a tent. I wrapped it in an ace bandage and hobbled through the remainder of the safari...had it cast when we arrived back home. I missed a step while walking onto the balcony to take a picture, though over the years the story's morphed to protecting my wife from vicious African predators!

THANK YOU for showing photos demonstrating the grandeur of the animals instead of yourself with a rifle standing next to one you shot to bring home as a trophy.

Good story! Kind of like how that fish I caught was 4 feet long...
