Day 1 of the POTN African Safari.

Well it is real. We are all here now safe and sound. Jake first need to go buy loads of sunscreen since all the bags were lost somewhere between Johannesburg and Windhoek. But they should arrive today.

We all did take some photos this morning. The Hotel Pension Steiner where we are staying have a small garden with lots birds. So Jake was almost in heaven :lol:

But since this update is done from a public internetcafe we won't be posting photos at this time. Hopefully we can post some at a later time.

Wow! were here.. not without some fears and a couple of concerns.. the most recent being that Jake an my luggage has not arrived.. Grocery shopping was an adventure.. I don't enjoy it in the states so it wasn't a huge suprise when I didn't enjoy it here. The only familiar things were cornflakes, and a few candy bars.. I can't begin to describe this place.. Even in Windeok that is such a city.. The sounds and faces here are incredible. As far away from home as I can get.. no matter where I go next. And completely beautiful. The other folks are almost exactly how I imagined them. Tommy, smiling and always seeming to laugh... Dave with his dry wit and endless knowlege.. Pat, the group crack-up and Jake the teddy bear.. Becca as efficient and loveable as I imagined.. all around a wonderful group of people.. i'm thrilled.

Just had to take a minute to post. Africa is an incredible place and we haven't even left Windhoek yet! Tomorrow we are off to Etosha National Park and thats where the real fun begins.

Good group and we are having a blast!

Yay!!! Hope the luggage has shown up by now! (If not, Jake and Sari *do* have their camera gear, yes? :) )

Sounds like y'all are off to a great start!

Looking forward to updates when you can and knowing you're just soaking in Africa when you can't.

Hugs all around

Great news that everyone's there and you're having a good time...

But where are the pictures? Keeping us all in suspense?

Congrats for arriving, hope the luggage is there now.

We are all eagerly awaiting the pictures because we are all thinking of you and imagining what it's like. And I knew you'd all get along. I haven't been to a meet where everyone wasn't instant friends. You may get to know each other better than you planned, but all good. Have fun!

Camera gear was always with us, but our luggage showed last night at midnight, it was like a gift frokm the heavens.
today we drove to Etosha wildlife preserve and .. well,
Thye trip there was filled with birds, I saw two types of large hwk one with the name of griffin in there somewhewre,. some smaller harrier sized raptors, I saw three different falcons I'm pretty sure, and that's just the raprtors,.
In the park, Springbok, Zebra, Wildebeast.. and a Giraffe!

It's just amazing all the time.

It's an incredible place to be.. Jake and I are both feeling almost romantic about the atmosphere and sheer wonder of the place.. But, it's off to get charcoal for the brai Dave is planning and then to the watering hole to watch rhino's and whatever else we'll see a block from our rooms.. which are airconditioned by the way. I was really hoping for mudhuts and mosquito netting...

Now, I can't believe that. You'll sleep a lot better with air conditioning, believe me. But if you feel like you are being deprived, Target sells netting when you get back. ;)
