Lake Nakuru, Kenya

After around four hours drive (African time: insert own road-based horror story here) north-west of Nairobi we reached Lake Nakuru.

A party of baboons met us ahead of the main gate, and loitered whilst we pitched the tents. They are annoying little so-and-so’s who steal your food in a heartbeat, but they can still be cute.

I can also report sightings of white rhino

…followed by the even rarer black rhino the following day.

Giraffes, as I think you may be aware, are pretty awesome.

At this point I’m afraid to say it’s rather dull waiting for slow campsite wifi to upload pictures, so I’ll add more at a later date.
In the morning I’m heading further west across Uganda to see the Chimpanzees, then into Rwanda for a trip of a lifetime gorilla safari.

Merry Christmas X
