Kenya – A Travel Diary

The ten day trip to Kenya flew by as if on wings.  At the end of it, and countless animals and national parks later, I am grappling with words to convey what I felt.

The Savannah is majestic & mighty. It awes you with its splendour.  The grasslands stretch as far as the eye can see, Mother Nature at her best, unleashing all her beauty in one shot – the dazzles of zebra, the gentle and graceful giraffe, the hopping gazelle and beautiful impala, the cute warthog families, the majestic African elephant, the musical and colourful birds, the lazy cats with their graceful body language and piercing eyes, the lush green grass dotted with trees, the unrelenting sun, the evening breeze, the refreshing rain, the safari rides atop the land cruiser, the guessing games to spot animals on every ride, the bush teas and treks through the equatorial forests….! Can anyone ask for more?

The African Savannah – unforgettable and humbling. Sharing a few pictures.

Majestic, regal…

Eyes looking into the distance, lost in deep thought, totally oblivious to the people watching them

Spotted this one at sundown just as we were getting back to the camp…hungry & walking with grace, merging with the dried grass
