Kenya in the Rearview Mirror

Well, we made it back without a hitch. It has taken a couple of days to get back into the flow of things in the U.S. What an adventure, to say the least. The Full Throttle Media team was traveling for pretty near a month. The Sport Fishing Safari project is off to an interesting start. There is so much material to preview and sort, but that is what we love. I want to thank McGinnins Leathers for all his hard work, dedication and sacrifice. None of this would be happening without such a great director of photography.

Our trip started off at the Kulalu Camp on the Galana River, before heading to Hemingways, where we fished with Simba Big Game Fishing and Jasiri Sport Fishing. Tina, Mark and George Allen hosted us at the Lamu House in Watamu. Many thanks to George for arranging a very special time. The fondest of memories and acquaintances were made. I would like to extend a special thanks to Nelly Kadagi of the African Billfish Foundation for her time and interesting interview. The ABF is doing some valuable work researching and helping bring awareness to the billfishery off Kenya's coast.

From Watamu we traveled south to Diani where Volkan Kaynak poured on the hospitality. Volkan is generous beyond description. His new casino, Evanes Casino or Evanes Casino facebook, at the Diani Reef Beach Resort & Spa is an exquisite VIP gamblers dream. Many thanks to Volkan for his impeccable character and generosity. The second half of our adventure would not have been possible without him. Wow, you are the man VK. I count him as a new friend and someone I could hang with anywhere in the world. Until next time, brother!

Our time in Diani also found us ripping up and down the coast with Volker Bassen of the East African Whale Shark Trust. He and I have outlined some interesting plans for further productions involving The World's Best Dive Destinations. Good things are on the horizon with Volker. Thanks for some damn good times.

Besides our time in Diani, Volkan also arranged our trip and stay at Tipilikwani Camp and Mara Ngenche Camp in the Masai Mara. These two camps are owned and operated by Atua Enkop. The Mara is a must see, at the expense of everything else in Kenya. This is Africa.

And last, I would like to say thanks to Jody Baker. This trip would not have happened had it not been for his encouragement and guidance. Good times, bro! Until our next adventure, see you in the south.
