Hi again everyone,
So I’m starting to try to put it together, and I am clearly open to suggestions regarding:
I think so far, the people who have expressed any degree of interest are:
[Jason&James – I’m excluding you because I think we concluded that you guys want to do a much longer trip with a group who joins the entire itinerary 🙂 ]
Whoever is still interested, please let me know, and are there any new people interested?
I mean, it’s best to go in groups of 4.. But first we’ll see how many people can agree on the same dates.. If we’re too many, maybe we can form sub-groups (which would probably be great for Rod) 🙂
Also, just to kind of get an idea of “target” species for this trip, I was thinking:
White-bellied & Black-bellied pangolin
Forest Elephants (of course)
African Palm Civet
Golden Cat (I wish)
So I’ve been trying to reach Rod, and he’s definitely a tough one to reach (I’ve talked to him before, but it’s been a while). In the meanwhile, does anyone know the approximate/tentative dates when they’d be able to go? I’m thinking February and March are the middle of the dry season and are best for Bongos/Hogs/Pangolins… Does this sound right? How long should we go for? I was thinking 10-12 days on the ground (not including travel of course). How many visits to Sangha Bai? Bai Hoku? Should we annex a visit to Mbeli Bai? or visit another section of the greater Ndoki-Sangha area?
Any and every suggestion that will get us to start planning duration and itinerary would be great. Thanks in advance, and I’m looking forward to start planning this awesome excursion.
