This post should cover the last part of our trip. The part where Mack was eating dinner and said, “Oh my! Have I died and gone to heaven?” The food during most of our stay wasn’t his favorite and a few days he survived on apple sauce given to him by one of our fellow-sojourners. And french fries. There seemed to be potatoes at every meal. But of course, he survived just fine! It made him that much more appreciative of the resort meals.
We stayed at Kichwa Timbo. It was super-nice! The bed was so plush and clean. The showers were hot! They had a blowdryer in the room! They delivered coffee and cookies to your room when you told them to in the morning. Ah-maz-ing. I enjoyed the ride into the safari resort. I enjoyed an evening drive out to see animals, and I also very much enjoyed opting out of the morning safari drive. The room was just too good to leave! No lion or tiger or elephant could have lured me out. Besides, I had a front row seat to a monkey at my room and a warthog laying in the sun at breakfast. That was enough adventure for me.
Here are some of the pictures from Josh’s phone. He and the kids went to the border of Kenya and Tanzania on the morning I stayed in. They saw the wildebeest migration. Pretty cool!
So obviously, it is clear why Mack might have thought he had gone to heaven at this place! It was nice. Really nice. An unexpected way to end an unforgettable trip. Until next time, Africa!
