A lovely selection of photos Doogs, they are all wonderful, but in particular I love the expression on the buffs face and the zebra with the rainbow is beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks LW, I'm glad you like them and it's made you :) You do sometimes tend to forget there's so much more out there than the Big Cats and Elephant behind so it's nice to let people see other birds/animals.

Awww thanks so much for saying you'll miss me Hugs We fly to London on Saturday, theatre on Sat night (Rock of Ages), Sunday we're going to Salisbury races then we're on the over night flight on Monday from London to Nairobi (JKIA). Arrive 6.30am on Tuesday, taken to Wilson Aiport then our flight out to the Mara is 10am Very Happy There until Sunday when our flight back is 4.20pm to Nairobi, quick stop at a hotel for something to eat then onto Jomo Kenyatta Intl Airport (JKIA) for our overnight flight back to London, arriving on Monday 25th June

WOW That sounds like a really packed time but what a lot of fun from start to finish. Whats the weather like in the Mara at the moment do you know?

Of course we will miss you but i'm also very excited for you and can't wait to hear all about it and see the wonderful pics, I really hope you get to see little Moja and his mum, what a delight that would be

My main priorities of pictures this year will be Notch (just incase we don't go back next year and I might not see him again Crying or Very sad), Olive and her cubs and yes Nyota and little Moja - would be fab, fab, fab if we could get photos of all of them

There's always a chance of rain over there, especially at this time of the year but mainly it shouldn't be much different from when we go in Sept - cold early mornings, warm/hot late mornings/afternoon, cool/cold late afternoon/evening.

I really do hope you get to see all the animals you really want to see but yes like you my favourite one would have to be Notch, I understand the thought of maybe not seeing him next year but also just to see that most majestic, very special lion is just a must, he is such a star and has such a pull on your heart doesn't he. he is a lion you would just love to live forever.

Sounds like you know what to expect with the weather Doogs, T shirts and woolly jumpers and maybe the raincoat too Very Happy but I expect just being out there it doesn't matter what the weathe ris doing as long as you get to see the wildlife.

Doogs. Sounds wonderful and you'll have an amazing time whoever you get to see. I agree about Notch and to see Moja and Nyota would be fantastic. I know your guide is brilliant so you're bound to see everything and everyone Very Happy

You are very right LW, Notch is such a Like a Star @ heaven and he's touched the heart of many of us Big Cat fans, we definitely wish he could live forever I love you

You're also right with the clothes I'm likely to pack, polo necks & fleeces, t-shirts and waterproofs, quite a combination/contrast !

I hope that Vincent knows who Nyota and Moja are Lai, I'm sure he will after PEL . . . . . 3 more working days to go

I am sure all the guides know who Nyota and Moja are now - PEL has done us proud on that front.

Is it now only 2 days to go Doogs? you must be chomping at the bit to get going now Very Happy

As Lai say's, Vincent must know who Nyota and Moja are, they must be such huge stars now after PEL, so fingers crossed you get to see them, that would be fantastic.
If you get to see our dear Notch blow him a kiss from me......silly I know but thats the nearest I will probably get to him and he is such a dear Lion and my favourite I love you

Laughing Doogs - always good to check the bag for some essentials!

I know I don't mean it really I am thrilled you are going now, it means we'll be able to enjoy your photos soon. Fingers crossed the weather is okay and you see lots and lots of wonderful animals and birds.
