After a long flight, the welcome to Africa by the staff of Governor's Camp was exceptional. Loldia House was the perfect place to rest and regroup. Small, intimate, overlooking Lake Vainasha, with my every need catered to. Feel like the Garden of Eden. Gazelles and monkeys run across the lawn, a baby monkey and his mom peek into my window and I am joined at breakfast by an orange tabby and a big yellow lab. The day safari to Lake Nakuru was phenomenal. My guide, Sammy, has a well-deserved reputation as the best guide in Africa. Meryl Streep's voice, "I had a farm in Africa.." kept running through my mind as I lolled on the shady porch of this historic residence.
