kenya: safari in the masai mara

oh my god.  when i said that we were looking for a once in a lifetime experience on our honeymoon, we sure as heck got it on safari!

it was absolutely mind blowing and amazing!  we couldn't believe how close we were able to get to the animals, and how apathetic they were about our presence!  it was incredible to see these wild animals that we learned about from the lion king, and see them behaving naturally in their natural habitat.

every day was more exciting than the next.  by the second day, we had decided that we would never take our kids to the zoo.  instead, we'll take them back to kenya--- mostly because we're dying to go back!

kenya: nairobi

my husband and i spent a lot of time deciding where to go on our honeymoon.  our wedding was in february, a somewhat difficult time to plan a vacation.  southeast asia and the islands in the indian ocean experience the rainy season, for some it's typhoon season, so those were enough reason to avoid that part of the globe altogether.

in the end we thought kenya was the best choice.  it was only a 5 hour flight from cairo, it was still in africa, and it was something completely new and out of the ordinary.  we wanted to have a once in a lifetime experience on our honeymoon, and that's exactly what we got!

we absolutely fell in love with kenya, and nairobi made a great first impression on us!  here are the posts for our first two days in nairobi and our last day in nairobi.
