Abardares National Park: The Ark
Before leaving Nyeri, Wambui had arranged for us to visit a local tea factory. She also suggested a coffee plantation but since we are tea drinkers we chose tea. (Although we have been drinking coffee and enjoying it). We passed through the gates of the Gathuthi Tea Factory and were …
... to see leopards, lions, and cheetahs. The surprise for us was the millions of wildebeest and other grazing animals.

Although there was an alarming amount of botty burping from the elephants.
