Just checking in to see of a Departure Lounge blog has been started -- and didn't find one, so here's my contribution. Looking forward to meeting the others on this trip -- I'm coming from the USA, and will be joining up in Naroibi with the primary group from London. This will be my first time with Exodus -- I met an Exodus group while in South India and heard good things. I've traveled with their "sister" group, Intrepid, before, so not surprised. I've wanted to visit the Masai Mara since I was touring in Tanzania and othes, who went to Kenya first, spoke so highly of it. And.....the Gorillas have been on my Bucket List for a while. Should be great fun.
