Here we are outside our chalet in the middle of the game reserve. It was our home for 3 nights, right in the middle of nowhere! The bottom picture is me standing beside the sign that was warning us to beware of the Hippos that were in the river behind that hedge. Apparently you mustn't be fooled by their lazy appearance, they are really quite vicious and are responsible for an awful lot of tourist deaths every year. Now I look back on it I wonder at my parents letting us wander about like that, shouldnt we have stayed in the van?

Another page for the album! Here are my sister and I standing outside Kilimanjaro Safari Lodge in Kenya in 1984. We were on a 4 day safari across the Tsavo and Ambolseli National Game Reserves. It is wonderful seeing the animals in their natural environment, I'd recommend it to anyone. The papers and embellishments are all from the Brenda Pinnick kit as before.

This double page spread shows our family holiday to Kenya. We went to stay with my uncle and aunt who had a hotel at Mombasa. We stayed 3 weeks and as I was 9 years old you can imagine the impact the trip had on me. Lots of wonderful memories.
