Here are some of the photos from our month in Africa in 2002. Both Gordon and Louise went with new digital cameras, hence we have way too many pictures.
These are among the (as yet unedited) very best!

We made our reservations through two extraordinary companies. We HIGHLY recommend both as our five week journey was (almost - Should we count a 45 minute glitch?) without fault. Commitments were met; our guides (Kevin, Pam, Ebs, BK, Humphrey, Abdul, and Dodie) were extraordinary - personable, knowledgeable, fun, insightful, and totally professional; our lodges were as expected and described - luxurious; the food was fresh, abundant, well-prepared, and accommodated all tastes and preferences; tickets were either in-hand or not needed. In all, an extraordinary adventure!
