Nairobi National Park
On Saturday a group of us went to Nairobi National Park. We spent the day driving through grasslands in a Mitsubishi Pajero. Half-way through the trip, we realized it was easier to spot animals if we sat in the luggage basket on top of the car instead of in the back seat or passenger seats. It was a bumpy ride, but we saw a pair of lions, a hyena, herds of cape buffalo, eland, hartebeest, impala, and wildebeest, as well as many giraffe and zebras. We also had a close encounter with a black rhino, he was not very happy to see us. . .Here's a group of zebra we spotted near our picnic site.
