Siafu and Hughes joined for this trip in 1974 (?)..Siafu folded before we ever left Kenya so we spent about 4 weeks swanning around the country spending time on the beach in Mombasa and visiting every major park whilst awaiting a bail-out from IATA in London. Finally I flew home and went out to South America and Joe Thompson brought the remaining passengers ( about 1/2 had to leave due to time restraints) back overland.
