INSIDERS' PHOTOGRAPHS & STORIES FROM AFRICA:
Three generations of the Talbot family joined together in Kenya to enjoy a Bushtracks safari spanning the Laikipia Plateau and the Masai Mara regions. Here they share their safari photos and stories.
THE TALBOT FAMILY SAFARI IN KENYA
"Tom had previously traveled with David on two Bushtracks/Stanford University trips and knew that he was absolutely the best imaginable outfitter for any future Africa trip for our family. As a result, Tom carried a dream of taking our family to Africa but knew that we needed to wait until our 5 grandchildren were of an age where they would be able to enjoy the trip to its fullest. We wanted to explore more of nature’s gifts to the planet, and to learn about and experience different cultures. Most importantly, we wanted to enjoy the wildlife of Kenya which is so abundant, beautiful and precious, and we wanted to accomplish all of these things together."

FAMILY FUN ON A GAME DRIVE
"Our ten-day safari meant so many things to each of us: it inspired individual and group courage and creativity to plan and execute such a flawless experience; it broadened our horizons to a range of new experiences on each day’s game drive; and it satisfied our souls as we immersed ourselves in the vast beauty of both the Laikipia Plateau and the Masai Mara amidst the unbelievable variety of wildlife."
