    Welcome back to the forum, Alta. A great trip in the planning.

    Yes, of course, it is possible to drive up western Tanzania visiting Katavi en route to the Serengeti. And it is perfectly possible...
  7. Re: Looking for current info on Djibouti/Ethiopia and Ethiopia/Kenya border posts

    One of my contacts in Ethiopia is going to ask around as to when the border might reopen, and will get back to me in a few days.

    You could also try phoning Henry in Marsabit, Kenya....

    Conservation costs a lot of money - a huge amount of money.

    Let’s put this in perspective. The Serengeti gets, on average, 350,000 visitors per annum. The Kruger gets, on average, 1.8 million...
