African Safari, Lake Nakuru, Kenya P1. P2. P3.

Early morning mists are normal in the damp woodland areas and are best seen in the very early morning.

The Makalia waterfall is well worth a short visit. Almost no facilities, as in all the Kenyan Safari Parks, but here there is a sort of public loo if you are brave enough.

The weather was quite variable but the threats of downpours never materialized and the heavy black clouds did not linger for long.

The rock hyrax at bottom right is on Baboon Cliffs, a high point in the Lake Nakuru National Park, and the best spot for sweeping views. Just watch out for baboons though. Securely lock your vehicle with all windows closed, or you are going to lose stuff to the baboons.

The cliff top is home to quite a large colony of hyrax and it is possible to get quite close to them. As always, directly interacting with any of these wild animals is frowned on and feeding them is an absolute no-no.

Bottom left, a couple of teenage Impala play at fighting for the camera.

My favourite places on our African safari were undoubtedly Amboseli, Sweetwater and Masai Mara. These are the places I would most probably want to return to if I was to go back, but I think Lake Nakuru was also up there amongst the best and would be a serious contender for a return trip.
