Travel Kenya Overview, 2015

Day One

The first full day in Kenya (ignoring the middle-of-the-night arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport) was a study in constrasts, going through the busy urban chaos of Nairobi's rush hour, to a small airplane out into the Mara, to a full day of wildlife viewing and arriving at our lodge, Saruni Mara.

Day Two

Our second day in Kenya was so packed that it's split into three posts.

Maasai Mara by Balloon

it started with waking up really early to go for a balloon ride in Maasai Mara National Reserve, followed by brunch.

Maasai Mara, Day Two

It continued with a game drive through the national reserve, until we rendezvoused with our guide from Saruni Mara.

Mara North, Day Two

Then we continued the game drive back in the Mara North Conservancy, with a stop for lunch, and an extraordinary list of creatures - zebras, hares, monitor lizards, baby lions, a gazelle being born, giraffes fighting, a massive pile of hippos, and a family of elephants.
