Jambo Jambo from Tanzania

Postby lefty » Sun Nov 05, 2006 9:25 am

Hi everyone.  :kuhsmilie:  
Just a quick hello from the Gibbs Farm in Karatu, Tanzania  :wave:

We have arrived here from the Serengeti and the Ngorogoro Crater and are now enjoying a relaxed day before going back into the bush :grin: Our next stop is Tarangire followed by Ruaha and then back home.

Taken thousands of pics already. The landscape is fantastic and we have seen lots of wildlife. You will have to wait until our return to get the full story and see our photos.

Anyway, that's all for now, see you all when we get back.  :cheer:

We are Back !!!  :cheer:  :cheer:  :cheer:  :kuhsmilie:

... we had a great time but I have to say I am happy to be back in good (c)old NL  :happysmerk:

We have thousands of pictures to go trough so it might take a while until we are ready to publish them ... so keep an eye out for them...

Tanzania is worth a trip, saw the big 5 within the first 3 days. Anyway, that is it for now... more to come later. :eyebrowe:

Ok..... still a long way to go with our photo selection!!! Heiko took about 3000 photos, and I took double that!!!! So far we've given each pic an inital glance and just doing that took a whole morning!!! Imagine how long it will take to select our favourites and then edit them!  :scared3:

Anyway, to make the waiting pass quicker... I took along a little compact digital to make some quick snaps with... and slowly slowly you will see them appear in the Photo Album! I've just uploaded the first 10 (of about 50...) - expect more soon!  :yippie2:

Ten more photos uploaded (and now I made a page 2 in the travel gallery!!)   :thumbsup:  ...I snuck one in from my SLR though - took lots of the hot air balloon safari preparations with my SLR because I could control the exposure better.. the morning light was beautiful... more coming soon!!

Neal, had no problems carrying our all our gear.... our backpacks were fairly light and we each had a camera rucksack. Thankfully we were well within the weight limit (15kg each) so they allowed us on the small planes within Tanzania! They didn't weigh our handluggage though (ie. our camera gear) - phew!!! :heyhey:

Ok I've finished uploading.... go visit the Tanzania gallery and if you scroll down the page you should see an option to sort the photos by time in ascending order - then you can view them all in the correct sequence! When you view large images you'll need to click on the left arrow to advance tho!
ENJOY!!!!!!  :cheer:
