Kenya Safari

The main reason we chose the itinerary we did was for the stopover in Kenya, which gave us an opportunity for an overnight safari in the Masai Mara.  Our cruise was originally meant to have an overnight in Mombasa but cancelled at the last minute due to terrorist activity in the area.  Mombasa was replaced with Zanzibar, Tanzania.  Thankfully, we were able to fly in from there.  We stayed at a tented camp next to a watering hole and were woken by hippos at dawn.  We saw all but one of Africa’s big five, we missed only the rhino.  Our driver was very surprised we saw a leopard as they are mostly active at night.
