We have pondered long and hard about whether to ‘Spot’ today. We have had bounteous correspondence from those tired of postings from the plains over the last four months whilst their crucial dollars remain neutered by Public Health and Foreign Office policies. We have also had a bulging postbag from those incredibly supportive Kichechians who have not been slow to put their hands in their pockets – the Kicheche Guardian initiative raised $129,000. They were not shy to reassure us about how they want to return immediately and are frustrated by the one-size-fits-all policies that thwart travel.
‘I’ll come out as soon as I am allowed’ A.A.
‘I am disappointed for all the Kicheche staff with these restrictions. I totally get that your safaris are about far more than clients having a brilliant holiday, with our £ & $ helping support the local communities and the wildlife.’ A.B.
‘A cold Tusker at sundowners, a giraffe wandering across an orange orb and the throaty grumble of lions waking …THAT’s what I miss’ M.I (we loved this)
‘You gave me the best week of my family’s life, we will be back just as soon we are (rather Orwellianly if I may point out) permitted.‘ T.W.
THEY ARE RESTED, TESTED AND THE PLAINS ARE ANYTHING BUT CONGESTED.
The incessant moan of the gnu, the anguished lament of the fish eagle, the implacable gaze of the leopard, and the asthmatic rumble of the elephant …… come back soon ….. we miss you, and we need you, as do the animals.
