Location: Lake Naivasha, Kenya

MapGot back from Lake Naivasha today, a day later then planned but the lodge we were staying in was way too nice to use only for one night and it’s a really lovely place. Altogether there were 8 of us who are all volunteers at the project and we all managed to get are acts together for long enough to get on the right Matatu. It usually takes around two hours to get there but naturally we chose the Matatu with a flat tyre so it took us just a little longer.

Our lodge was a 5 minute walk away from the lake. On Saturday morning we took a boat ride out into the lake to watch the hippo’s and birds. In the afternoon we went to Hell’s Gate national park where we planned on hiring bikes or getting someone to drive us around as about 10km into the park is a huge gorge that has hot springs. However we could do neither so we decided to walk. We didn’t have enough time to make it to the gorge plus the fear of wild animals and not wanting to find out how the park got its name made us turn around and head back to the lodge after two hours.

Back in Nakuru now and gonna have to sort some kind of lesson plan out tonight cos its back to school tomorrow…..
