What an amazing first week…
… After much last minute stress and start the long flight to Nairobi, we arrived safe and sound (not robbed on the way) to Effie and apartments Celia. They quickly took us to the experience of some rapprochement with the selection of African wildlife, treating us to a trip to the Langata Giraffe Centre and Mamba (crocodile in Swahili) Village.
After a day in Nairobi with a sort of money and get our bearings, we went on our way to the Masai Mara. It was 5-6 hour journey on the fact that he felt that some of the bumpiest roads in Africa. After a few pit stops we arrived at our camp site late lunch, and then in the evening / night safari at the beginning.
Over the next two days we met loads of characters from the Lion King, including most of the Big Five (lion, rhino, buffalo and elephants), cheetahs, hyenas, wildebeest, zebra, impala, mongoose, warthogs, baboons, hippos and countless birds, all up close and personal!
An abundance of wildlife in plain view was amazing, as it was, how close you came to them with little cleaning with a safari van! Even
Our camp was surrounded by wildlife, which kept us awake at night, from the nearby village of Masai (though not as exotic as mainly sheep, cows and dogs).
We also visited the village of the Maasai who thought provoking experience, but also left us with mixed feelings about the commercialization of culture Maasai.
After a truly wonderful and memorable four days we went back to Nairobi should also lie in!
