Naro Moru, Kenya: Lions, buffalos, giraffes, oh my…

Posted in Kenya on December 29, 2011

After a bumpy 5 hour drive to Nakuru, we settle into our tented camps at Flamingo Hill Camp right in the heart of the national park. On our first game drive, we see baboons, birds, and tons of zebras and gazelles. Only an hour in, we discover two lions chilling out ferociously on a horizontal tree bark. It was AWESOME! The white rhino is massive, and the baby rhinos are too cute. We enjoyed some wonderful African entertainment by the bonfire and joined in when it was time to dance.

We are up at 5:30am on Christmas morning to head out for another game drive. This time we are lucky enough to see some beautiful giraffes, with an unreal sunrise behind them. We also saw warthogs, waterbacks, hyena, dik-dik, ostrich, pelicans, and hundreds of water buffaloes. Oddly enough, there were no flamingos because of the high water level. I will never forget spending Christmas on a safari in Africa; strange without the snow, but definitely unforgettable. Bottom line, if you come to Africa, you MUST experience a safari.

Asante sana,
