Our First Safari

We went on our first safari this weekend to the Nairobi National Park. It was only 45 minutes away from our house(without traffic). We got up somewhat early, around 6:30 am and arrived at the park around 8 am. It was a long day in the car for the kids, but all in all, it was a great trip and we got to see lots of animals. There were lots of zebras and girafffes as well as ostrich, peacocks, gazelle, wildebeasts, crocodiles, warthogs and all sorts of different birds. Our only disappointment was not getting to see any lions or tigers. Supposedly you have to get up before 6 am to see those. Maybe next time.

Chase with Zebras behind him crossing the road and Hannah with a Giraffe.

A beautiful view of the park. It is hard to believe that downtown Nairobi is only 30 minutes away.
