When last we spoke K and my adventure had led us to Switzerland for a training with Medair. But before we get into that I need to share about our weekend on Safari. K and I celebrated our 5th anniversary while we were in Kenya and we thought it would be pretty amazing to go on Safari to celebrate. And it was pretty amazing.
We drove about 5 hours south of Nairobi to the Masai Mara National Game Reserve. We stayed in what looked like a canvas tent, but when you unzipped the door you discover beautiful hardwood flooring, a four poster bed and a lovely western bathroom. I was incredible.
We spent three days chasing the most amazing animals. We were 6 feet away from a female lion, had an elephant trumpet at us for being too close to it’s baby, and were attacked by thousands of flies while driving through an amazingly huge herd of wildebeests.
It was such an amazing experience. Just looking through the pictures to post brought back all the feelings of excitement and adventure of being so close to such incredible creatures.
The shear size of the elephants and giraffes, the number of the zebra and wildebeest, and the incredible ugliness of the hyena was overwhelming to see in person. I know I’ve used this word too much in this post but it was an amazing experience.
On our way back to Nairobi we stopped at a look out point to view the Rift Valley. The Rift Valley runs from Israel to Mozambique, and funny thing is K has actually been in the Rift Valley in Israel. The view was beautiful.
We also were able to hit up the Giraffe Preserve in Nairobi, which included feeding and kissing the Giraffes. Even though I think these animals are the most awkward when they run they are still fantastic. It was the perfect way to wrap up our time in Kenya.
The Medair training update to come!
