After the Family Trip

Our recently concluded Family Trip was a major success. We would like to thank our partners from Florida , USA who flew a long way to be part of our Kenyan family trip.
Every morning as the Sun rose , We felt the first ray of light gave us a sign that mother nature was about to unveil its mysteries of the wild. The experience began with sightings of the rare and elusive leopard which was in almost every park, to a hunt of a buffalo by a pride of lions , To the lazy hippos that enjoyed the sun and calmness , to the Elephants that looked after their young with a very watchful eye and the bountiful bird life we spotted , The Big Five and the unmatched hospitality of the Kenyan people.
As the Sun sets to its resting place we take cover in the watering hole “The Bar” where you would hear laughter and chatter of the days wild events. In Kenya we say “Hakuna Matata” and end the day with chilled Bottle of the famous Kenyan Beer “Tusker”.

Ahsante Sana 🙂
