    Our Safari begins

    We were up at 6 AM eager to get started. It was apparent that many safari operators use the Boulevard Hotel as their Nairobi launching point as there were several vehicles loading in front including one massive Mercedes camping truck.

    ... so no one wakes ☹ Dogs barking, lots of them loudly. Needless to say, it was a rough night.

    Our first day gave us a glimpse of the days ahead and it looks hard. When we arrived last night it was dark and we couldn't see much.
