With the visit of S’s parents coming right on the heels of our trip with Cam, our blog has sadly fallen into disuse. As we start packing for our next adventure, we wanted to share a few of our favorite photos from our last safari. Amboseli National Park, which lies close to Kenya’s border with Tanzania, vies with Nakuru for the honors of being the second-most visited park in Kenya. It was overcast the day that we went so we did not get the “classic” view of elephants in front of Mt. Kilimanjaro about which the guide books rave. But we did see bigger herds of elephants than we had ever seen elsewhere in Kenya, a pride of lions, and plenty of other game. Best of all, our trip coincided with the beginning of the birthing season, so many of the animals we came upon had adorable, tottering offspring who were awkwardly following in their footsteps. While the Maasai Mara is obviously in a league of its own and is deservedly Kenya’s number one safari destination, Amboseli is also worth visiting. For our money, it is definitely Kenya’s best national park outside of the Mara.
