Mount Kenya – The Second Highest Mountain in Africa

Garth and Johan explore East Africa, day 4 and 5 2

Second only on the African continent to the magnificent Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya registers its height at a staggering 5 199-metres. Perched upon a now extinct volcano, the Mountain has two peaks, which can only be reached by technical climbers, with a third that is accessible for hikers. This third summit is known as Point Lenana and offers nature lovers from around the world the chance to witness a variety of African wildlife that call these slopes their home.

This was sent around via email and we thought it was such a lovely story that we had to share! NAIROBI (AFP ) – A baby hippopotamus that survived the tsunami waves on the Kenyan coast has formed a strong bond with a giant male century-old tortoise in an animal facility in the port city of Mombasa, officials said. This is a real story that shows that our differences don’t matter much when we need the comfort of another..

Lunch in Tanzania

What a day yesterday was… after leaving the Serengeti behind we headed north to try and find a road that would take us to Kenia. We inspected some nice lodges along the way and then made our final push over the Mara River. At a T-junction we took a right turn and after awhile we came across a road block run by local villages who wanted money from us to go further… When we ask one of the guys if this was the road to Kenia, he said its goes to wherever you want it to go. We then worked out that we were heading in the wrong direction anyway.
