Dear Advisor Partners,
You may be following my travels through East Africa, which started in Tanzania and have now carried over into my native Kenya. This visit is really special for me. For those of you who don’t know, I am an only child and those of you who do know, usually have a great joke to insert at this point. So go ahead, let ‘em fly! You see, I am in Kenya with my two real brothers, the equivalent of siblings for me. One has known me since the age of 3 and has been an instrumental help in shaping me into the person I am today. The other, who traveled with me from Washington, DC, has known me since I was 17 and has been an older brother true and true for me, like when I ran out of air while scuba diving 40 feet down, or when we camped out on a beach in Mexico for a week, among other adventures.
So this blog is very special for me. The rains have started in the Serengeti, the animal herds are merging and the ground is lush and green. The video this week should show something epic. Pay attention to the lion in the tree, as that is one of the rarest sights in Tanzania, even more so in the Serengeti. I think we spent over an hour tracking that lioness and her cubs as she looked over at the zebra herds across the way, that is before, the wildebeest herds behind her spotted her and began warning everyone. I’ve been on safari since I was 4 years old and I have to say, this one ranks right up there. I have to take a moment to geek out about my accommodations which I loved returning to, Roving Bushtops. Normal mobile camps come with bush showers, however Roving is one of a kind, self-sustaining with its own hydraulics and tanks to store and power everything. It is one-of-a-kind Swiss technology at work in the Serengeti. Frankly, the only thing missing, is a Tesla Powerwall, however, I hear that is on the way.
This should be a great migration season coming up, stay tuned for the third installment of this dispatch. Enjoy this week’s video. To look into booking a trip similar to the one I’m currently on, I recommend the President’s Pick Tanzania & Kenya The Wild Walk.
