Kenya

The house owned by my step-grandparents in Kenya

This summer I visited Kenya with my family! We visited many people and saw many animals, so there are many stories to tell. First we stayed at my step-grandparents house in Nairobi, we got to meet some locals and they taught us a few words of Swahili: Jambo=hello, Cariboo=welcome, Sana=very. The first full day we were there we rode in the back of a jeep siting on the “jump-seats”.

Shangalia’s Theater

We visited Shangalia,

a school that takes in children who have no home or are abandoned on the streets, where they provide shelter and food and education for children from 4/5 to late-teens years.

Zebra in Nakuru

The third day we went to Nakuru

and saw zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, baboons, gazelles and impalas, the scariest one we saw though was a hippo underwater near our campsite.

We went on a safari the fourth day of the trip to  Lake Nakuru National Park, where a some sort of colorful lizard jumped on my sister,

and we saw the old entrance to the park that had been abandoned due to rising water levels.

My father on a camel in Laikipia

I also happened to get sunstroke that day, which was followed by a week of food poisoning. We then went to Laikipia and stayed there for a few nights. We got to experience fly camping and a walk through the land where we climbed a rock that overlooked a heard of elephants. We also each got to ride camels!
