I decided that 2023 would be the year when I returned to Africa and the excitement and joy of safari life after an absence of 7 years.  I decided to focus on Kenya and to explore some areas that I hadn’t previously visited. The trip lasted from February 13th - 28th. 
In 2016 we had stayed in a marvellous camp - Sarara - in the Samburu territory on the eastern side of Mount Kenya.  I hope to be able to go there again, but this time I decided to explore the western escarpments.  Two camps were selected, both in conservancies and I spent 3 days in each:
Kicheche Laikipia in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy - 90,000 acres, formerly a beef farm owned by the Saudis, and home to white rhinos - or rather, the few that remain.
Safari Series in the Lolldaiga Hills, a 50,000 acre conservancy north of the town of Nanyuki - rugged country.
I then moved south into the Maasai Mara.  Again two camps, and I spent 4 days in each of:
Serian in the Mara North National Reserve, a long- established camp, followed by
Kicheche Valley in the 50,000 acre Naboisho Conservancy.
