Sometimes you can only tell people so many times ….. Jenny Varley has frankly spent far too long in a holding pattern before finally getting to Kicheche.
She had the grace and class to tell me: ‘ Graham has taken more footage in the last four days than anywhere else’. Err that’s one big ‘told you so’ Jenny.
When you sit and wait and the time passes with honey-drip slowness the temptation is often to break cover for home. That is just not going to happen with Nelson Kasoi as your guide. ‘Just another fifteen minutes’ he implored as their five cheetah vigil crept into its fifth hour. This formidable coalition have a taste for the Conservancy and a long wait is always more agreeable without legions of vehicles. Sure enough the five stars arose and ran down a zebra foal.
After such an extended hors d’oevre it is often easy to lose concentration when the main course arrives, not Jenny and Graham, top, top work, both of you. Stay for longer next time.
