Sunrise lighting the acacia and clearing the landscape around Mt Kilimanjaro this morning. In the 10 minutes after leaving camp we've met the calmest big old bull elephant contemplating his food, and turned around to see an early rising giraffe wondering what we're up to... you think he'd never seen muzungu bikers before!! That just the short drive from camp into Amboseli National Park.
We biked across the dry bed of Lake Amboseli yesterday and made our way into Amboseli National Park. Wow! Close (very close) ups with giraffe and elephants, and a lion chasing gazelle less successfully... A beautiful night and back into the park for another look this morning... before getting back on our bikes and cycling north towards Nairobi.
We enjoyed a stunning view of Mt Kilimanjaro from Solomon's Rock last night, with the sun dropping into the dust on the other side of the horizon. This morning there are 41 Maasai Mamas (and counting) with their blankets and wares spread out. We are heading into Solomon's village this morning and then back on our bikes to Amboseli National Park.
