I booked to go on this trip last night. This is my first trip with Exodus and my first 'adventure holiday' so I'm both excited and nervous. It would be great to hear from anyone else that is going and shopefully we can get some correspondance stared before we all meet in 6 months!
My first adventure holiday and first time with Exodus too! Very excited, but worried about coping with the practicalities!
Have you done other adventure-type holidays with other tours before? I;m interested to know more about how they work....
I too am a little nervous about the practicalities - I've never been camping before for instance! But I'm hoping it will all be part of the fun and I'm really looking forward to getting some great picutres and getting away from my Blackberry!
Hi there, I'm not on your trip but have done similar before. What you'll probably find is that after dinner in the evenings, and as you're getting up in the mornings it'll still be fairly dark (you tend to start morning game drives before dawn). The ground will be a bit rough and there won't be more than small lights round about. It's therefore useful if you have a torch, and it's so much easier to have a headtorch in order to keep your hands free...
I'm off to Kenya (with exodus, but a different trip) in a few weeks - can't wait...!
Just logging in to say hello. Looking forward to the trip - only a month to go now!
Good to hear from you and look forward to meeting you in just a few weeks!
I did this trip last Christmas. The camping is no real problem, although facilities can be limited. It's is fun to join in with the camp chores. The early mornings are worth it to see the animals. You might be able to see some of my pictures with the rip information.
A torch is a definite, and don't forget the sleep bag (someone did on my trip and had to buy one the first day) it can get a bit cold at some points on the trip, but it gets hotter as you head towards Zanibar. Try to avoid taking too much, as space is limited in the truck. Nobody will be too concerned about how you look as everything will get dusty (plastic bags for the stuff you are not using is useful.
I just wanted to say 'Hi'. I'm going with my hubby and it's also our first adventure holiday and we're both looking forward to it. We're gonna have a go at packing our bags this weekend, mainly to see how much space we haven't got! We're looking forward to meeting you all in just over 3 weeks time!
Thanks for all your information rteathers - very useful! It's nice to get a bit of insight before you go!
Hi Karen - good to hear from you. I'm very excited and can't beleive it's just a few weeks away! I've just got the last few bits of kit of buy and that's me ready....I just hope it all fits in my bag!
Just to say'Hi'! Looking forward to meeting you all in just over a week.
I'll be the disorganised last minute one of the group then ... booked a fortnight ago, just about managed to get injections in time, kit shopping and currency buying tomorrow!
It'll also be my first holiday of its kind, and my first trip on my own since I was 18. Excited and a little apprehensive. I'll be arriving in Nairobi the night before most of the group as I can't sleep on planes no matter how hard I try.
Look forward to meeting you all.
