So, after our first safari experience we were raring to go. So off to Lake Nakuru we went in search of the last 2 of the big 5 - Rhinos and leopards. With some very pink flamingos thrown in, we were very excited.

So we travelled to Lake Nakuru which is a couple of hours north west of Nairobi, still in Kenya. There we booked a day in Lake Nakuru in a jeep for 2 people. What we got was a day in a van with 6 other people!!! So after some angry exchanges we got some money back and went on our way.

Lake Nakuru was fantastic. The lake was lined with a huge amount of flamingos which meant that it looked like it had a bright pink lining around the edge of the lake. It was quite something and watching the hyeena chasing them unsuccessfully for about 30 minutes (what a fool) was very amusing too. We saw black and white rhino here aswell and very luckily we came across a leopard on the hunt. WE felt quite complete - we had now seen THE BIG FIVE! We decided however that our guide was pretty pants though and it made us realise just how good our Masai Mara guide was. When he actually asked for a tip at the end of the day, we were quite shocked to day the least!!!

Anyway, another good day and we also met some really nice Kenyans in this area. We spent time drinking with a bunch of Kenyan teachers who said that if we could arrange to come back and speak to their children they would definitely SLAUGHTER A GOAT FOR US!!!!! Mmmmmm yummy...not! Me thinks we might not have time for that! very interesting talking to them though. Also me a guy outside the pub as we were leaving and he asked us "Where are you going to have your fun?" What a great question eh?

So moving on from Kenya we were to travel to one more place - Eldoret near the border of Uganda and Kenya and then into Uganda. Eldoret was a little nondescript really, but it was an alright overnight stop.

See you in Uganda.
