My 13th trip to Kicheche was unplanned, spur of the moment.
When Paul Goldstein said that Bush camp would be open, I didn’t hesitate to see if I could make it happen, these were unusual times – with other trips postponed to next year, and I felt the pull of Kenya more strongly, with even more uncertain times ahead for all of us, more so now a lockdown is in force again.
Planning was a bit more stressful – with properly sourced insurance, covid tests and temperature checks to be taken – but they meant I felt safe and those at the camp would be too.
Everything went to plan and I’ve had the most amazing time – catching up with friends both two-legged and four. The cats have come out to play!
So 13 was certainly lucky for me.
