Back from Lake Nakuru

Well, what can we say.

this was our first time in Africa.

we loved it

Kenya is truly beautiful. full of beautiful people, always smiling and kind and funny. and of course, we loved the fact that there was so much wildlife!!

Before going to Masai Mara, we stopped for a couple of days at Lake Nakuru. it was amazing. we saw everything we wanted to see here. Rhino's, hippos, giraffe's, lions, leopards, birds etc etc.

We stayed at Sarova Lion Hill which is a lovely place. beautiful rooms great service.

We would like to thank everyone here at TripAdvisor for their help with our trip. especially Annika & Peter who gave us so much valuable info.

the trip was organized by a local TO: KABS. truly amazing.

here is a short clip of our trip to Lake Nakuru. hope you enjoy

ps. we had underestimated the temperature. early morning and late afternoons it gets REALLY cold. especially when you are on safari. so make sure you take some heavy clothes.

Great video. Especially liked the winking Buffalo. The video of the Mara was great as well.

Thanks for sharing the vid. You have exemplified Nakuru as being a lovely Rift Valley lake to visit.

MichiganLaurena:

Thanks. yeah we loved the Buffalo. he would freeze and stare at us for like 1 min straight. then go back to munching grass, then again stare at us... he was hilarious!

Kileleshwa: we visited Lake Naivasha as well, but for one hour only. regret not going for longer, it's a true bird watchers paradise. will make sure next time to stay a night.

Peggiel: yes, jeans and hoodie are fine, but remember a scarf, especially when you are in the jeep early morning and afternoon.

Leeds,Mfuwe,Yankari,Princess & StefaniLarda: Asante sana everyone! glad you like the video!
