Kenya safari and other cool Kenyan experiences
Before meeting Tasha, traveling wasn’t something I thought about. Growing up in a small farm town with only a few hundred people in it, meant there wasn’t much to do except play football. Going on trips across the world in different continents (read about our time in The Canaries here) was something I hadn’t done but was super excited to do, so flying to Kenya and experiencing animals in their own habitat on a Kenya safari was something quite different to a normal holiday.
Interacting with the Locals in Kenya.
Visiting the locals and seeing some of their handmade carvings was incredible. These carvings ranged from simple wooding animals to warrior spears! One of the best things about buying carvings from the locals, was they would make the carvings right there and then but most of all they were so appreciative of you buying with them! For me, knowing that buying from them would help feed their kids, I was happy to do so.
Elephants in their natural habitat.
Lying sleeping in the bush to be woken by the sound of an elephant less that 100 yards from where I was sleeping. This was pretty surreal. Knowing if that elephant wanted it could have trampled right through our camp. Leaving nothing but devastation. So sharing these majestic animals, natural habitat, to sleep in addition a holiday, was pretty cool. Not too many people can say they have done that!
Kenya safari through the bush to see some wildlife.
The very next day I went on a Kenya safari through the bush to see some wildlife! That we did. The very first animals to come across our path that day was a huge troop of baboons. Must have between 20-30 Baboons. They walked straight across that road less than 20 meters from where we were. Not a care in the world about our presence or in other words, didn’t care we were there!
