Kenya - Samburu, Naivasha and Masai Mara.

Me and my son went to Kenya to experience the african nature and come face to face with Africa’s storybook animals, not behind bars but moving free across the savannah and may be take a couple of photos.

We spent a couple of days in the Samburu National Reserve and was lucky to see "The Samburu 5", the Somali ostrich, the gerenuk, the Beisa oryx, Grevy's zebra and the reticulated giraffe. These five animals are endemic to Samburu. After Samburu we drove down to lake naivasha where we stayed for one night and went on a boat safari. From the boat we saw hippos and lots of birds. After the boat ride we continued our journey towards Mara.

Masai Mara is world renowned for its exceptional populations of lion, cheetah, herds-a-thousand-strong of buffalo, zebra and wildebeest. We saw a lot of animals and I made a lot of pictures. This Kenya trip was a great experience and even if it was many hours in the car between the parks it was really worth it.
