My last entry had us at Solio Ranch where we stayed for 2 nights. Here we were able to see plenty of white and black rhino which are considered one of the most endangered animals in the world. We were fortunate to not be charged in our truck by the black ones as they are very unreliable. Another highlight of this place were our competitive games of ultimate frisbee. Many laughs and sore muscles/ bruises occured. We left Solio and flew to the Masai Mara for 4 nights in a lovely tented camp that is away from crowds and along a lovely river bed. This place was unbelievably beautiful! We were able to see a couple prides of lion (with cubs), two attempted lion kills and one successful cheetah kill. The sunsets and sunrises were spectacular along with the abundance of wildlife we saw. Our only disappointment was that the migration was late to begin and we missed seeing the millions of wildabeasts......we did see 2 though
This morning we flew back to Nairobi where we got to go on a private tour of the David sheldrick elephant orphanage (which is half the story of the recent IMAX movie born to be wild. It was inspirational and very fun.
We sadly had to say goodbye to our amazing guides William and Roy and our fantastic Sambruro warriors Robert and Lepeta....and now the Falkers.
It sure has been a special trip with many lifelong memories......
And now off to Zambia to continue our adventure!
