When we went to Aberdares National Park and saw animals like elephants, warthogs, and the elusive giant forest hog, I realized that not all Kenyan safaris would involve arid plains.
So last weekend, when we ended up on a 40-minute boat “safari” around Lake Naivasha, I shouldn’t have been surprised to see exotic wildlife. But growing up near several lakes in Maine, I was surprised. Lake Naivasha was not the kind of lake I was used to. Or maybe I just take the local flora and fauna for granted in Maine. Anyway, for me the highlight was seeing HIPPOS– which I have never seen in the wild.
