We saw ostriches, antelopes, lions, giraffes, black rhinos, wart hogs, zebras and more (I would have to look through all my photos to remember them all).
After our safari, we headed to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where twenty-six baby orphan elephants are being raised to be returned to the wild! They were amazing! The smallest was four months old and was wearing a blanket to keep warm! These elephants have been orphaned mostly due to poaching for ivory and conflict with humans. It's really worth learning about: www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.com.
We had a lovely lunch date at Talisman in front of their beautiful organic garden.
Next stop, the Giraffe Center where you can hand feed a giraffe! Daisy was the giraffe on deck eating pellets from young and old patrons alike. Usually, the giraffes will eat a pellet right out of your mouth, but apparently Daisy is a biter and everyone was discouraged from trying to "kiss the giraffe."
Finally, after our full day of animal adventures, Joe and I dragged ourselves to a local market where original Masaii arts and crafts are sold. We bought tons of souvenirs and then dragged our tires selves home for the evening. We wanted to make sure our weekend was wide open to spend time with the girls here at Hekima, so we made sure we packed our schedule today!
P.S. Obviously I have a bazillion more pictures to share but I will have to wait to get back to the US where I'm not uploading on a 2G network, high up in the hills.
