A good meal and after an early night we were up this morning ready for safari at Lake Nakuru!!!!!
Andrew had organised for an open top land cruiser to meet us at the hotel and take us out for the day – WOW! – no words can describe how great our day has been.
We saw buffalo, impala, gazelles, flamingo, pelicans, white rhinos, the rare black rhinos, zebras, baboons, giraffes and yes Will – LIONS! – to name only a few, and many had young with them, we have been so blessed. The animals and the scenery were breathtaking, so much more than we could ever had hoped for can’t even explain it was so amazing.
Tierney helped to sum it up when she said “have come all this way, but I wouldn’t complain if this was it and we had to go home now!” to see God’s kingdom as we have today gives us so much more to reflect on…. Also on the safari we saw a waterfall which reminded us of charlie and the chocolate factory and there was a car that passed us but sitting inside the car was a masi warrior. At one point marnie thought we were going to get stuck in the mud as our driver jhon had gone closer to rhinos so we could get better picture but that meant going in the mud with the car slipping and sliding in the mud.
Then we returned back to the hotel where we saw many small children there were approx 20 of them up 5 years old. They were from a local children’s home. The teacher explained to us that they try and take them out at least once a day to different places and as the hotel had a small park they came for a play, we then spent a wonderful unexpected time playing with them and talking to them too…
It is difficult to upload pictures whilst the Bain’s are at RUSH but the party that went out in February did take lots of photos at Lake Nakuru where they went on Safari, so if you want to get a good taste of what they have seen you can see by clicking here.
We also took a couple of brief clips of video that you can see to give you a little idea of what they saw.
Hopefully they will have taken pictures etc that we can show when they get back.
We woke the Rhinos up when we arrived and they started fighting amongst themselves, we were rather worried (to put it mildly!)
