Tsavo West National Park. Kilaguni Serena safari lodge.

Stunned. Amazed!

The giraffe. Such a magnificent and odd creature. Impressive!

Hippo. Hyena. African Fox. Crocodile.
Colorful birds. Buffalo. Monkeys and ostrich.

(And yes, zebra. More on that to come.)
(And no, no big cats, unfortunately.)

We’d driven approximately 200 meters from the gates of Tsavo West when the driver stopped and we all shouted in unison: Elephant!
A minute later, a family of giraffe galloped across the road, zebra grazed along the side of the road, with antelope, gazelle and tiny dik dik aplenty. Making me go wild and crazy inside the bus, eagerly jetting from side to side to take as many pictures as I possibly could.

Is it so, that what you don’t have “in your own backyard” has a greater capacity to amaze you?

Advent Calendar for 2019: sharing pictures and stories/reflections from my trip to Kenya in June. I went to visit “my trees” and get a hands-on experience of the social entrepreneurship of the Kenyan forestry company that I buy trees through.

Full disclosure: I am proud to say I am both a customer and an ambassador for the company. If you are curious to find out more, let me know and I’ll gladly get in touch with you! Here’s my sponsored link: https://betterglobe.com/27216
