We headed north out of Nairobi early the next day heading to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, home of the world’s two only surviving northern white rhinos. We had a brief stop to get some water & peanuts and other to go to the loo & look around a souvenir shop we bought a couple of bracelets. During the drive we also got our first sight of Mt Kenya with snow-capped peak & a growing cover of cloud.

We checked into our room at The Stables and had a late lunch before heading out on my first safari drive! This also included a visit to Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Baraka, the black rhino who being blind was removed from the wild to his own large enclosure and now acts as their rhino ambassador. We also crossed the equator and took the compulsory photo!

We saw:


• Black rhino
• White rhino (northern & southern subspecies)
• Grant’s gazelles
• Thompson’s gazelles
• Warthogs
• Vervet monkeys
• Superb starlings
• African elephants
• Buffalo
• Jackson's Hartebeest
• Eland
• Water buck
• Burchell’s zebra
• Crowned Cranes
• Guineafowl
• Lilac-breasted roller
• Bee eater
• Hadedas
• Weaver birds
• Chimpanzees (in sanctuary)



We returned to camp at sunset for supper then Chavaunne & I sat by
