"Adventure travel existed before I started, I just didn't know it".

 

Uhuru, we’re footloose and fancy free in Kenya at last. Kenya has always epitomized all that I imagine an African country to be, warts and all. One reads a lot about it and the life the settlers used to have, famous hunting stories and battles to conserve the wildlife and forests. Robert Ruark, Rooseveldt, Hemingway, Karen Blixen, the Sheldricks and Leakeys and books by Peter Mathiesen have been the closest I have ever got to Kenya, and now we are here at last.
