Lake Naivasha, Kenya
After Aberdare National Park we continued on the journey to Lake Naivasha, Kenya where I took way too many photos of flamingos. Hundreds of flamingo photos. In my defense there were a lot of flamingos and they were very pink and pretty.
Giraffe photo bomb:
We started out on Lake Naivasha on a boat. After crossing the lake we hopped out and went on a walking safari. It was a little weird and scary- we had to stay quiet and couldn’t get too close to the buffalo as to not make them mad. The giraffes wanted to hang out but the zebras are scaredy-cats and ran away. I was like a zebra and hid behind people the whole time 🙂
After our little walking safari we hopped back in the boat and saw hippos for the first time.
The we a little creepy with the staring. Hippos are shy and don’t like people or having their pictures taken. Sidenote: They also smell very, very bad!
We also saw a python and got really close to it. It was scary!
And more flamingos of course:
Lake Naivasha was pretty neat but I definitely preferred Aberdare National Park over it. We are heading to the Masai Mara next which is going to be a highlight for sure as the Wildebeest Migration is happening now!
