The first day in NairobiOctober 6, 2017 in Kenya
We didn’t really know what to expect in Nairobi, but now being here and we are slowly realizing, that traveling in Africa is still traveling - and that is a good thing!
When we arrived yesterday, it has already been dark and on our drive to the hostel, we haven’t really seen a lot, well, apart from zebras at the edge of the road and a giraffe head in the bush, isn’t it crazy? 😳
Today the plan is, to go to town and to see the baby elephants. But how to get there? The prices proposed in our hostel are simply too high. So we decide to go local!
So we are walking from our Hostel “Milimani Backpackers” in a gated community to the main street (monkeys on the power lines take a little pee on Annina’s face 😂) and then we’re taking a Matatu, a mini bus full of Kenyans, that costs 0,20 cents instead of 15€.
Two Matatus later we are walking past wild baboons (we are alone – and aren’t baboons dangerous?) to the entry of the baby elephant center.
We can see about 29 small and playful elephant orphans, that are raised here, as their parents were killed, mostly by humans. It was quite amusing.
We’re taking another Matatu to the expensive Carnivore restaurant and we’re deciding not to have the $39pp all you can eat meat.
