Several people provided me information both before and during the trip, especially Steve Spawls, Mengistu Wondafrash and Tadesse xxx, the latter two from the Ethiopian Wildlife & Natural History Society xxx. I was also given advice from Hilary & xxx Welch on Djibouti, and a host of others who were contacted through the SA Birdnet. For details on this excellent list-server, see www.xxx.co.za
I am also indebted to Dave Moyer for lending me the additional cash in Tanzania, and to xxx, the General Manager of Coca-Cola in Ethiopia, who was seconded from South Africa, and able to change some Rands for me, as well as to the man from the UN (whose name I forgot to write down), who was able to change some Kenyan Shillings for me.
If I can assist anyone who is planning such a trip, I will be most willing to help with advice, and can be contacted by E-mail on .
