So, a virtual safari ensued; the hunt for Rob Morley.
Rob had arranged our previous "once", or as it turns out, "first in a lifetime Safari". Was he still doing it; because we knew he had moved on? Seasoned as we are in "safari", however, we soon tracked him down. Ok, so it wasn't that difficult! It turned out that Rob; with friend and colleague now business partner, Clyde; had started up "Tailormade Africa".
An, "is that really you?" email and a "catching-up" call quickly followed, and our "second in a lifetime Safari" was soon being planned; with Tailormade Africa.
It's a great pleasure working through an itinerary with Rob; he surreptitiously pumps you for your thoughts; moulds them into a proposal; always testing your views; until at last the plan crystallises. No detail is too small; he even dealt with the "hair dryer" issue (maybe more on that later!). All done with enthusiasm for the subject and great humour with the sole intention of creating opportunities for the best possible experience for YOU!
Arrangements in place; all paid up; last-minute review with Rob; bags packed and repacked(at least twice!); and now our "second in a lifetime safari" has begun!
Where to I here you ask? Onsea House in Arusha for one-night R&R after the overnight flight Heathrow to Kilimanjaro via Nairobi; Ubuntu Camp in western Serengeti; Kwihala Camp in the Ruaha.
