I have been absent from my blog for a while. I just returned from a 10 day safari in Africa and it was the most amazing trip I have ever done.
The first part of our trip was spent in Amboseli National Park in southeast Kenya.
Amboseli National Park is known for its elephants. According to our guide, there are 27 different herds of elephants within the park. Amboseli is very dry and dusty. The word Amboseli is the Maasai word for “salty dust.” Every morning the elephants (and other animals) will walk miles to get to the marshes to wallow in the water and mud and eat. At the end of the day, they all walk back “home.” These elephants were walking just outside the lodge where we were staying.
Our safari was a photographic safari with Wild-Eye. It was one of the best experiences of my life.
