We arrived early (before the gates were open) so enjoyed a picturesque sun rise over the lake. As we started the drive a mist was rising below us creating a peaceful atmosphere. We saw loads of buffalo going to the lake shores for a drink and a hippo having a morning bath. The terrain in the Park is very varied and beautiful. The baboons at Baboon Hill, need to be watched carefully. One mother and her baby came very close to our vehicle and watched us alight. The next vehicle to turn up was raided by this same mother in seconds of pulling to a halt, She jumped onto the windscreen and through the open top roof and was grabbing a rucksack from the back seat all in the space of a few seconds. The occupants scrambled to get away but the driver managed to shoo her away without taking the bag: but its a salutary lesson to remember that these creatures are great opportunists and to take care with possessions and not imagine they are "cute". We got so close to a giraffe that we could only get its legs in the photo and had to drive on further in order to get a complete photo, We spent several mesmerising minutes staring into each others eyes before moving on. Having spent an hour at the GIRAFFE centre in Nairobi earlier that week we were already aware of how long and lustrous are the eyelashes of a giraffe but it's always nice seeing them in their natural setting without barbed wire in the picture.
