June 6th – 9th: Final Goodbyes

Posted in Kenya on June 19, 2012

During our 3 day safari in Masai Mara, we saw lions, cheetahs, elephants, water buffalo, ostrich, impalas, and antelope. It was amazing to see African wildlife up close and personal! We were able to view the animals within a few meters of our vehicle. We also visited the Masai warriors in their village; they live in cow dung homes and subsist on a diet of cow blood, milk and occasionally meat. The Masai men and women showed us traditional dances and we were able to join in as well; the women had it easy while the men had to compete in a jumping contest (that is how you get the ladies as a Masai warrior). At the end of our traditional Masai experience Ciko exchanged email addresses with one of the warriors, developing yet another world connection!

On the 8th we returned back to our starting point in Nairobi, we had one final evening together and went out for a nice dinner. We said our final goodbye’s to our friends, David and Joseph from the Mt. Kenya youth hostel, who had taken such good care of us on safari and throughout our stay in Naro Moru. The 9th marks the official end of our experience with DWC and we will all say goodbye to each other; some will travel back to Canada while others will continue on another adventure through East Africa!

Asante sana DWC and Naro Moru, we have all learned and shared through this experience and Naro Moru will remain in all of our hearts!
