Nakuru, Kenya

Continuing with snippets from my Kenya trip 2 years ago (and yes, I am just getting around to writing about it), here are some pictures from Nakuru.


We just went there for a day trip from Nairobi to see the flamingos, have lunch and basically spend a day in the city without shopping. We reached early morning and were greeting my a sea of pink. The 60 USD entry fee is quite steep for a day but it was worth it. There were some migratory birds as well.


We went to the lake and walked around a bit - I even got my feet stuck in the clay trying to collect a few pink feathers. We went up to Monkey Mountain where we saw - monkeys! Lots of them. There were quite a few White rhinos dozing in the afternoon sun as well. It was hard to imagine that we were just a few hours from a bustling city.


We were told to make sure that we reached Nairobi well before sunset as the highway is very unsafe. In fact, they say that if you puncture a tire don't stop to change it. Rather lose a tire than your life!
