Zebra Crossing

The Zebra at Hell’s Gate National Park at Naivasha, knowing my sense of humor, kindly posed for this photograph.

I went to Lake Naivasha with Christine (another VSO who arrived in Kenya with me) and her friend Shauna. It was a fantastic weekend, more photos and stuff below…

The camp site had Colobus Monkeys in the trees and a Fish Eagle overhead soaring and swooping, and making a dreadfully undignified noise. On Sunday we rented bikes and rode up to Hells Gate Park.

The rock in the picture on the left is the same one in the valley where I’m looking in the one on the right. For KSH 300 we could have climbed it, there was a man there with all the ropes and paraphernalia.

Its one thing to see Zebra from the window of a car, and quite another to pass them on your bike!

Two blurry photos of a hippo that came out of the lake by the camp site and mowed the grass 50 feet from where we stood.
