– Amboseli, Kenya.

We have started the 2012 summer safari season this month with two classic family trips to Kenya’s best wildlife areas, including the Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, Laikipia, and Amboseli. Steph and the kids were able to join us in Amboseli for a few days last week, and we enjoyed some excellent elephant and lion viewing, as well as a visit to Solomon Ole Lenkaja’s traditional Maasai home and the Ngararambuni nursery school. Ollie and Halina love safaris more and more as each year goes by, and they are becoming excellent spotters with “macho kali” – Swahili for strong eyes.

Stay tuned for updates from the Masai Mara and Lewa Downs, where Steph and I will be running the Lewa half marathon this coming Saturday, June 30th!
