Safari Day 3

overcast 25 °C

Day three was a very early game drive, so we were up for breakfast at 5:45. We headed out and picked up one of the girls from the lodge (one wasn't feeling well) and we headed out on our drive. We saw lots of the same common animals - zebra, giraffe, elephant, wildebeest, buffalo and springboks - but we didn't see much else besides an owl and a cute little fox.


The drive back to Nairobi started with the same couple of hours of dirt road. I wasn't feeling 100% so every bump in the road made me a little nauseous but I was fine in the end. We drove a different route than we came since it had rained more and James didn't want to get stuck in the same place as before.

This time though, we came to a small river we couldn't cross, and the route instead lead us to this insane dip through a narrow path lined with trees. James treated this Safari van like an atv at times! We went through it and it took three tries, wheels spinning and mud flying, to get up the hill. The first two times we just could make it over and we rolled backwards into the dip. Unreal. One of the girls was squeamish every time we went through mud. She's close all the windows and make noises that she was not comfortable lol. So when she saw this ditch we were about to go through, she just opened the van and got out haha. But it meant she filmed the whole thing!

We stopped for lunch at another buffet and I bought some more souvenirs for myself, then we carried on with our drive. Once we got to Nairobi traffic was terrible, and it took us over 2 hours to drop everyone off and saying goodbye to our new friends and we were the last stop.

Once back at our hotel we took it easy, had some dinner and got to bed early.
