    I am surprised to get to know that a buzzer in a room is heard when animals arrive at the waterhole! Great sunrise and Thomson's Waterfall pics!

    The Ark sounds like quite a spot to enjoy African game viewing in comfort!! I never had a chance to visit this part of Kenya, but it is still one of my favourite countries!
