Lake Naivasha

Naivasha, Kenya

This week we spent a couple of days camping on Lake Naivasha on the way back to Nairobi. The camp ground itself was pretty basic but the location was incredible. You can wake up in the night and hear all the hippos from your tent. On the first day we got there it was one of the girls birthdays so we decided to get dressed up and go for afternoon tea at Elsemere. Elsemere was the home of Joy Adamson of the Born Free books/films/charity. Its now a museum and afternoon tea venue! We spend about 2 minutes in the museum part and then got our dollars worth in tea, quiche and cake. YUMMMY!

The next day we decided to go on a bike safari through Hells Gate National Park. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was stunning. We rode past Zebras, Antelope and Warthogs before getting off our bikes and climbing through a gorge.

We're back in Nairobi today (7th) just waiting to pick more people up before heading to Tanzinia. I'll be in Zanzibar next weeked... LUSH!

Lizzie, too much fun! Africa sounds awful, and you look totally unhappy in all your pictures. Come home!

I read the "Born Free" book years ago. Then it was on TV.
