Kenya

Things we learnt in Kenya:

Male Lion Masai Mara

1. Safari roads. Your kidneys will never forgive you. All I can do is profusely apologise to all of my internal organs. My bladder will never get over it.

2. You think a safari vehicle is indestructible because of the way they smash their way across country. Then it gets wedged in a ditch, promptly trapping the rescue vehicle with it, and you have to abandon it after dark in a game reserve.

3. Wildlife is all over the place. Sometimes it stops you getting into your hotel room, sometimes it's banging on the door of your hotel room and sometimes it joins you in the room itself.

4. I will travel for twenty hours to kiss a giraffe on the nose.

5. "Have you been in a tuk tuk? They don't obey the laws of the road" says our taxi driver as he overtakes a bus, on a blind corner, in the middle of the night, doing three times the speed limit.

6. Warthogs are hilarious little clowns that will do any manner of undignified things (getting wedged in a gate and falling off a wall were my favourites) for a free meal. They are basically my spirit animal.
