This is sunrise this morning over stunning African plains teeming with zebra, wildebeast, topi, impala, and thomson's gazelle.

We're only just out of camp and have seen so much it's awesome. We've also seen hyena, silver backed jackals and warthogs with their little aerial tails like radars directing them across the vast plains.

I have donned my best safari hat, and we are now embarking on a wild cat hunt, throughout which we shall endeavour to try to refrain from parking our vehicle in any large mud holes.

Later peeps!

It looks very green. Is it the rainy season?

Lucky you!
Last time I was in Kenya, for a month, I saw two zebra crossing the New Naivasha Road, and that was it for wildlife. Mind you, I was on a working trip, and it did give new meaning to zebra crossing.
I doubt that my next trip will be much better - I must take a holiday there some time!


Mr Bananas - its not supposed to be the rainy season but there's a lot of thunderstorms about. It's very gorgeous, green and wet at the moment.

DM - you must do a safari sometime. You are really missing out. It is stunning.

I did Pilanesberg in SA four times in four months - it was fabulous.
But Kenya is a workplace first and foremost - more than ever at the moment.
but when I get some free time, I will let you know and you can point me in the right direction.
