African Sunrises and Sunsets

Tiffany : It's fantastic to be back in East Africa with all the amazing sights, smells, people and landscapes not to mention the incredible animals.
I flew into Nairobi, Kenya and caught up with Lorraine and Nicole at Karen Camp. It's been a whirlwind since then starting with the elephant orphanage,

the KSPCA centre (for abandoned and mistreated animals)

and a re-introduction to life in Africa including the boda boda rides - small motorbikes that act as taxis.
We went on to Soysambu Conservancy -
We spent some time seeing the behind the scenes work that goes on -this is a lion collar with a transmitter.
 Rowena is one of the main people in the Lion Project  - driving through the bush in her 30 year old landrover.

We spent several days riding and exploring the conservation area, seeing all the animals including close encounters with zebra and giraffe as well as seeing  gazelles, impala, water buck, eland and warthogs. The highlight though was getting the chance to see the lions.
