This trip is really great.  We have a congenial small group and a charming leader.  We saw a chetah chase, but miss, an impala! 

This postcard is postmarked from Kenya in 1970.

Old but still beautiful postcard. I've dreamt of going to safari and climbing Kilimanjaro for several years, still have time to do that :)

I would LOVE to see this in person - someday I hope. If you go, Monikucha, I am thinking I could use an updated postcard! ;-)
