One extraordinary flight – Ol Malo to South Island, Lake Turkana

Andrew, at the end of the night, suggested an adventure at dawn the next day.
“Let’s fly to South Island on Turkana, see if we can catch a Nile Perch, and if we can’t we can have some breakfast anyway, and take in some views.”
Chiyulu added “We can break the doors off to get some air-conditioning and you wont feel cramped at all”
We went and this is what we saw:
We started at Ol Malo and then in a north-westerly direction over the Lerochi Plateau, Painted Valley, the croc pools on the Rift Valley floor and ancient lava flows. Heading north up the Suguta River, across the sand dunes to Lake Logipi and over the ridge of the Teliui volcano to the Nabaitum crater on Turkana Lake shore landing on South Island. It took two hours with some low-level aerobatics – we even had some of Andrews’ afro-pop in our ears. After a splash and two small tilapia we returned Via Mount Nyiro, the Horr Valley, the Ndotos, Milgis Lugga and the Mathews Range to Sarara. There are 30 slides.

Excellant. Some fab pics. Helps to pause on any that take your fancy. A bit more narrative would be good.
re tonight with Andrew, don’t forget to tell him that I have met the Humphries (Nigel and Jenny) twice in two weeks – the first at their house af a Batcombe Shoot lunch and then at the annual Batcombe Safari Supper in aid of Shelterbox, the African charity. They are a charming and entertaining couple and I heard of the link with Fugitives from Jenny over a bibulous Dessert course!
Hope you get a good turn-out and best widhes to Andrew and whoever is with him.
Good to talk on Monday, we need to do it more often,

Spectacular pics. I am fascinated with volcanoes.
How was the bubbly festival – so sorry to have missed it!
