I don't have my Sprinter yet, but can I play anyway? If not, let me know and I'll remove my post.

Here's our campsite on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.

Somewhere in the Serengeti. This old Land Rover was falling apart all around us. But it was our home for a month and never left us stranded.

We often attracted a crowd when we rolled into a village for supplies.

Making camp while an elephant stares you down can be a bit disconcerting.

your pics bring back happy memories... no matter where I was in Kenya it seemed that within minutes a kid would appear and soon I was always surrounded by kids... lots of smiles and laughs !!!
those were the best moments in my time in the Peace Corps there...

Your campsite and camper looks great, with or without visitors.
Never owned a Land Rover, but drove one a lot. Amazing machines.
And amazing pictures!

Thanks! What an amazing experience that must have been. Africa gets in your blood. I'm taking the whole family in June to Kenya.
