. . . . and he's not

Due to unforeseen circumstances - I've had part of my gut cut out, my trip to Africa in 2012 has been put on hold.  It won't happen this year but hopefully will be resurrected in 2013.

. . . . and he's off !

I've taken the plunge !  My flights are now booked and paid for :
    Early July : Birmingham - Frankfurt - Jo'berg - Walvis Baai with the Luftwaffe, sorry Lufthansa.
    Mid September : Nairobi - Geneva - Birmingham with Swiss Air.

The bit in between - the where and the how is still a bit hazy.

Watch this space !

Sorry - I have to go back

The initial plans are to ship a 4x4 back to southern Africa and wander around for a couple of months.  There are many places I've not visited and a number I'd love to revisit - who knows where the road will take me !

New places that are on the list include the primates in Uganda/CAR/Rwanda and  Gombe Stream, Ruaha and Selous in Tanzania.  Perhaps, if I leave the 4x4 with friends in Tanzania, I may return to explore the arid Northern parts of Kenya.

There's also the possibility of assisting Desert Elephant researchers in Namibia.
