Our trip to Nairobi

It has been a few weeks since I have posted, but it has been a busy few weeks. Most importantly for us, we went to Nairobi, Kenya for the weekend on Friday November 18 to meet our friends, who were visiting us from the US. Together, we returned to Zanzibar on Sunday November 20 with our friends and hosted them for the week here during their Thanksgiving vacation.  We had a fantastic time with them and did some of the tourist things that we don’t normally do, but saved some touristy opportunities for other visitors.


We visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to see elephants.

Here are a few highlights from our trip to Nairobi.


This is Esampu, the elephant that I adopted. She is greedy and likes to eat a lot. They also said she was naughty.


It was a very rainy day, but the elephants and us still had fun.

We went to the Giraffe Center.




This one likes me a lot.

We also did a safari in Nairobi National Park.


It is rare to see the rhinos up close. There are fewer than 10 left in this park.


Zebras seen from the restaurant we ate at next to the park.

I will share the highlights from the time in Zanzibar later in the week.
