Kenya Acknowledgements

I would be remiss to a fault without acknowledging two people for their invaluable assistance in making an experience of a lifetime become a reality.  Mike Hedley made the trip a possibility in the first place and Mustafa Mohamud made the trip the incredible success that it became.  I will be forever grateful to them both.
Mike Hedley is a former Microsoft colleague and a very good friend.  When Mike's wife declined the opportunity to go to Africa, he offered me the chance.  We have undertaken previous trips together and he is a great travel companion.  His previous experience traveling to Africa in his nonprofit work with local school children was crucial in trip planning.
Mustafa Mohamud is the guide who was assigned by African Horizons for our safari journies.  Stating Mustafa is a guide belies the truth.  In adddition to being a photographer himself, his vast knowledge of wildlife and their habits, along with knowledge of the wonderful Maasai people, and Kenyan history in general made for a truly educational experience.  I cannot believe my good fortune to not only have met Mustafa but also having made a life long friend as well.  Without his amazing expertise many of the photographs in the Kenyan gallery would simply not have been possible.
