Yesterday was a public holiday here in Kenya so the number one thing was to have a sleep in and then go out to do something. Liz took the whole sleep in idea a little bit far and didn’t wake up till after 10am (lucky her!).
Pete and I have never been to the Nairobi Safari Walk, so decided to give it a go. Here, because we are residence it only cost $3 each. We figured if it was a dud we hadn’t lost much. If we were tourists it would’ve cost a whopping $20.
Unfortunately we went in the middle of the day so finding animals was a real challenge. In fact we saw more signposts than animals.
What they did have that was cool were the boardwalks. However there wasn’t much to look at except trees.
We’ve visited a few other places that have more action than this place, yet there were lots of people there. I’m not sure if it was because it was a holiday or that the kids could run free. In the wildlife department I think we have been totally spoilt.
We did manage to see a couple of different animals that we hadn’t spotted before.
We even managed to get close up to a cheetah. I always get cheetahs and leopards mixed up.
While the number of animals wasn’t great at least we could see them, and they us.
I wouldn’t want to meet this guy in the bush!
Overall it wasn’t too bad a way to spend an hour, but wouldn’t be in a hurry to go back again. If you ever come to Nairobi there are plenty of other places that are more exciting.
