Kenya and Tanzania with Philippa & Stephen on Makako: Day Eight

Day Eight

Up early this morning before sunrise and then it was time to hit the 30road and meet our nine new travel companions! Five were staying at the Wildebeest Eco Camp so we headed there first and met Mike, Stephen, Suzanne, Jasper and Robert before heading over to the Heron Hotel to collect Phil, Mark, Emma and Leila. The truck was nice and full and the sound of greetings and laughter echoed around! We had a fair bit of a drive to the border today so used the time to get to know each other.

After a quick supply shop it was on to Masai Camp where we will spend the night.
