Bugs? are there any Bugs??? Of course there are bugs !

thousand of them all sorts , from a dot , to spiders as big as your Hand !!!! Cockroaches like a saucer..... I kid you not........Have you not realised where you are going for a holiday?

This is Africa..........Beautiful....magnificent Africa.... with the most spectacular sunsets ,wonderful crystal clear water,, multi-colour fish of all species, .....bladdy...., bladdy ....bladdy,

But the most wonderful aspect of your holiday will be the genuine welcome from the Kenyan.........absolutly priceless.......

I suggest you just give a quick spray in your lodge just before dinner and there wont be any thing lurking under the bed....

(or will there?????)

Tasha ..just a bit of fun.........

But there are bugs ......... the lodges and tents are quite clean,

the weather in January is hot..very hot... and i think with hindsight a fortnight in spain would have been less stressful......

happy holidays,ed

You will certainly get a tan.....the sun is very strong down there, more intense than Caribbean sun, (well same sun... but you know what I mean) For example, in Carib the highest I ever used was factor 15 in Kenya I had to go up to a 30.

thanks for the reply... really want to go, so going to take my chances with the insects. Hopefully i'll see more animals than insects!

Can handle them outside, just don't like them in my room! And can't wait for some sun and to meet the people of Kenya.
