Question about wines in the Mara:

Does anyone know the price ranges, and does anyone have any recommendations? I cannot drink white wine, so I need to stick with reds... Any favorites? Planning waaaay ahead for our August 2013 stay...

Thanks!

Yes, I did it today. Just show up at the Boma podium at or a little before 4PM. We got a taste of Soup and a ZD, then they took us over to Jiko for a taste of their bread and dip service. Just like everyone has reported. I'm glad I finally got to do it!

Since you are staying at Kidani, you and Fran should try the Culinary Tour at Sanaa and, of course, report back.

Oh, that's terrific! Soup, zebra dome, bread and dip. Heaven!
Really need to make a countdown ticker.
Thanks so much!

No more time left. Tomorrow is our last night and then we head to BLT. But I heard that the one at Sanaa is a "cultural tour" not "culinary". I will report on the "night vision" tour. I need to get going to wake Fran up so that we can report for that one!

I can't wait to hear about the night vision tour! Is it a tour or do they just lend out night vision goggles? My DS (7) loves animals and will love this. Are there any other animal experiences/tours at AKL that a 7 year old can participate in? My DH or myself would join him, of course!

The night vision viewing is in an area just past the smaller spa. You stand there and look at the Savana with the goggles. The CMs there are very nice & great to talk with. One was from Ghana, the other from Entebbe. They very very nice.
