“Just as I suspected, the cupboards are bare, and there ain’t much in the frig.”

Setting my stuff on the table in the entry area, I walk to the kitchen, look in the pantry, and then open the refrigerator to check for groceries.  Just as I suspected, the cupboards are bare, and there ain’t much in the frig.  Good thing the guys won’t be here until about noon.  When I first made the final decision to start my safari business and began spending a lot of time in the Kenyan “bush”, it took me about three months to get used to not having a 24 hour Wal-Mart down the street for whenever I needed something.   Preparing for a hunt, knowing you will be away from everything for one, two, maybe as long as four weeks requires some strategic planning.  I’ve learned where some well-placed stores are along the way, and what times they are open.  Often times drinkable water and fresh produce are a real issue.  Bottled water is popular now in Kenya, but the store owners are real proud of their supply and don’t mind making a nice profit.  The Lodge has well water that is safe to drink and even tastes good.  We always try to fill some large water containers to carry with us.
