This week, we went to the Nairobi National Park. We have visited the animal orphanage before, but never took a a drive inside the Park itself. Despite the rain, the children had a great time spotting and naming all the animals we saw.
As soon as you drive into the park, you are greeted by these obnoxious baboons:
Chomping on Acacia:
There are two female ostriches here if you look carefully:
Gitau, Karanja and sleepy Mungai:
I swear there's a herd a buffalo in this picture:
And a giraffe in this one...
The kids were very quiet as we saw a pride of 6 lionesses walk right by us to surround a herd of zebra.
Then it began to rain and the herd of zebras caught on that the throng of 4-Wheel Drives that had gathered weren't hanging around to see them eat grass!
