Yesterday we did the tourist thing. Since we had a (relatively) short time here, we decided to forego a full blown safari. But we did go see some animals. Rather than describe everything, we'll let some of the hundreds of pictures that we took tell most of the story. Click on the picture to get to some larger ones and see more on this flickr set.
We started at the Giraffe Centre:
Up close and personal:
For $600 (US) a night you can stay at the manor and feed the giraffe from your window:
Then it was off the the baby elephant orphanage:
Cute, isn't she?
Many of these elephants were orphaned due to ivory poaching. It's too bad they didn't have access to this shovel in the wild to beat up on the poachers:
Then it was off to the Nairobi Safari Walk (after lunch and some shopping):
Some lion pictures:
The sign says "SPEED LIMIT 20 KPH, WARTHOGS and CHILDREN HAVE RIGHT OF WAY"
