Sweetwaters Day 2

A travel blog entry by gsdraper


Owen woke me at 4:30 am. It was quite a noisy night--baboons barking at about 3:30 and something unidentified making a lot of noise very near our tent at 4:00. Owen and I left shortly before 6:00 am to watch the sunrise over the waterhole on a crisp and clear morning. Giraffe, Ibis, cranes and the ever present waterbuck were at the watering hole, …

The Trip to Sweetwaters Tented Camp

Left the Mountain Lodge at 9:00 am. We stopped at the equator where the Coriolis effect was demonstrated with a bucket, a home-made funnel and a match stuck. Water drained with a clockwise motion in the Northern hemisphere, and a counter clockwise motion in the Southern. You only had to move about 40 feet to see the effect. Directly in the equator …

Ol Pejeta Conservancy

A travel blog entry by wareameye


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 …

Visit to Ol Pejeta and the Chimpanzees

A travel blog entry by bumihills


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.

Sweetwaters was a …

Happy Canada Day!

    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!
