Kenya’s capital

Photo courtesy: Chuckupd –

After over five weeks on the coast, it was time to venture inland. Kenya, along the Mombasa to Nairobi highway, was a journey through a wonderland. Baobab trees and sisal plantations dotted the landscape. Elephants were a common sight along the side of the road.

Nairobi was a modern city, even back when I visited but I wanted to see wildlife. On the outskirts of the city was Nairobi Game Park. I managed to spot giraffe, deer and hartebeest. It was sights like this that made me wish all zoos were shut down.
