“Catch the wildebeest migration here with tons of zebras.... it is the northern part of the Serengeti.” - JodieO

There was a tented camp next to the gate of the park we called “home” for a few days; outdoor kitchen, benches under the acacia tree for bonfires… magical. We learned “Malaika” – a song about angels, from the local Maasai and Kikuyu boys.

Dawn meant coffee, then driving into the park to see OUR FIRST ELEPHANT!! How TINY it looked all alone on the plain… it was in its expanse where it belonged. Then, it seemed to not take but a few minutes before Peter, our driver and guide, spotted something else… a lion under a bush, and oh - with a partner! A group of ostriches - - always running away, and you could never get a picture. An impala or other deer-type animal…

A few drives into the park, and we were amongst wildebeests galore mixed with the stately zebras. Had to drive slowly to part the throngs, but it was amazing to be interspersed with them. What a fantastic treat!
