OK, so maybe you were expecting an elephant, zebra herd or a pack of hyenas ripping apart my luggage. We only just arrived and the only wildlife we’ve really seen so far was the traffic jam from the airport to our friend Charlie’s house here in Nairobi. That was pretty wicked, however. Charlie has a place in a gated community of Nairobi sitting on three acres of beautiful landscaping with tons of flowers. Practicing with the long lens which I haven’t used in some time, I captured these beauties in the backyard.
We booked our first safari with Kairi Tours and today depart for Amboseli National Park for three days, passing through the Rift Valley along the way. Then we continue on to Lake Nakuru for a rhino sanctuary and then to the magnificent Masai Mara before returning to Nairobi for an overnight break. Then on to the next. But leave that for next week. Then the coast, we hope. I’ll try to blog what I can, when I can. But even right now intermittent power outages are making me crazy. Crazier. Whatever.
