I recently took an amazing trip to Kenya, Africa. It was an adventure of a lifetime. Our guides were a powerhouse of information on Kenya, the people and the incredible animals. While I found the people extremely warm and friendly, I experienced a great deal of poverty. Perhaps in addition to sending our military to Kenya we could send educators, books and other educational tools to teach the children.
We stayed at the Sweetwaters Tented Camp and Masai Mara. Both camps were quite an experience. Marai’s varied landscape supports a variety of wildlife. Here we experienced the “Big Five” -lion, Buffalo, elephant, leopard and rhino. The “Big Five” is not based on the size of the animal but goes back to early hunting days when these 5 animals were the most prized for hunters. I’m ready to go on another trip to Africa. What an adventure!
