Naomi got the bug on this trip, and plans on going on some conservation trips with me in the near future
Naomi enjoying a quiet moment, contemplating life…..
Listening to Dominic tell a story
Sharing photos with the camp staff
Eagle eyed scout spotting our next photo op….oops, wrong photo

Thank God we had a real pilot
A title for this page could be “Leto gets a buzz”.
This is the usual position for Sean (affectionately known as Leto from this point on)
This is the most movement we got out of Leto when we told him that Tea Time is over and its
time to go look for some wildlife (he perked up when he heard the word wildlife, although he had a different
type of “wild life” in mind)
Here we go, now he is awake and helping us spot wildebeest crossing at the Mara river.
He certainly has a unique way to use binoculars!
For some reason, Leto got a fly up his you-know-what and decided to get a haircut
Here is Kate gladly obliging him
Dominic was none too happy with Kate’s technique and decided to take over
That’s a lot better- a man with a buzz giving a man a buzz cut
Oops, don’t worry about the nick Leto, it will heal once you stop bleeding
Almost done, time for the sideburns to go
Wadda ya think?
Dominic gave Leto some lotion to put on. He never told him it was cape buffalo dung with
a whitener added

Don’t bother me, I’m dreaming of tonight’s drinking game
Carly had an important job. She was assigned to schlep the 500 mm from LA through Heathrow and Nairobi all the way to the Mara.
And she only complained for one week!
