We head out of Nairobi this morning, bound for a game reserve near Mt. Kenya, arriving there in time for lunch. In the afternoon we take our first game drive which features a stop at the Chimpanze Sanctuary founded by Jane Goodall (and which was recently in the news for the chimps killing one of the young volunteer workers). Here are a few shots …
The ride to Sweetwaters was long, or at least it seemed that way. We stopped several times, once at a local outdoor produce market which was busy selling not only produce but all kinds of different items. It was very interesting, crowded, colorful, and lively! We also stopped at a roadside stand to stretch our legs.

What a way to celebrate July 1st... on morning game drive we saw amongst many sightings of animals, a pride of lions that had just eaten their giraffe breakfast; a cheetah resting; and a mother and child pair of black rhinos. We are staying at Sweetwaters Luxury tent site; where we have electricity and water heated by woodfire. We are enjoying the …

This lodge provided perhaps our top experience in terms of accommodations during this tour. The watering hole just across from the tents, and the abundant wildlife, make it an exciting place to stay. Many of us wondered why go out on safari at all? Just let the animals come to us, as we sit and enjoy coffee and drinks at the bar. Our favorite moment was the parade of 16 elephants of all ages, followed closely by the sight of tall giraffe spreading their front legs far enough (the splits) in order to get their long necks down low enough to take a drink!
