Road conditions to from the Watamu area..

Looking at my map there is the C103 west from Malindi into Tsavo East. Does anyone one have experience of this?

Or is it the long way round by Mombassa and the main road?

How about a cut off to Amboseli from Tsavo?

Haven't driven it since September last year, but have on many occasions on previous years, at least up to Sala gate.

It's generally in pretty good nick although cuts up pretty badly after rain.

The only place we've ever had problems were just after Kakuyuni where the hill leading out of town can turn into a river after rain.

Apart from that, no problems in a 4x4.

Will be driving it in just over 3 weeks! Yippee!

Thanks.

Well when you get back I would appreciate an update.

(and I will be in Africa before you! Not Kenya but only 20 sleeps before I hit EBB!)

I think it would be rather interesting to know, when sitting in the dining area at the lodges and camps, how many people you are looking at are ones you know via TA but have never seen. Sounds like there are going to be several of us there. TA sent me a very nice luggage tag which I put on my camera backpack.

Well I have said this before but SaNparks forumites have a system to know each other. Tie a yellow ribbon to the car aerial or wing mirror.

But this would only work in the car of course and not in lodges. I have a TA Doc. case (in lime green Ugh!) and a TA fleece but who wears a fleece at dinner? (let alone who would want to buy me a drink??)
