Adventures in Kenya – Samburu National Park

Our first safari experience was to spend two days in Samburu National Park.  We were able to see so many animals in this beautiful park.  It was an amazing start to our week.

We came across some elephants as we drove through the park to our hotel on the first evening.

This is our tour group taking a little wine and cheese break.  We actually got out of the van, which was a little scary, but we had a guard with a rifle close by so I guess it was okay.  samburupicniccargroupfb
