I just finished a two week sprint through the entire basin documenting the hydrometric and climate network. I spent about 4 days in Tanzania and the rest of the time in Kenya. I was lucky to have officers from the Tanzanian and Kenyan water offices accompany during portions of the trip. During our last stop today, we ended up running into James Sindiyo, the Chief Warden of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. He was nice enough to take us out to lunch at the Sarova Mara Game Camp. It was an exceptionally good lunch, considering it was the first lunch that we have had in the last two weeks! We've been traveling so much over the last two weeks....we never had time to stop for lunch.
Feels good to be done. I'm in Narok for the night then off to Nairobi tomorrow.
During our drive between climate stations in the Maasai Mara, we saw tons of wildlife, and lots of tourists. High season is here.
