We’re going to keep this one quick – just photos. The day is our last full day in Kenya before making our way back Saturday towards the US (with first stops in Nairobi, Dubai, and then eventually DC – and then further to Seattle for my brother).
So here’s the day, mostly in pictures. Sunrise at around 6:45AM, still fairly chilly though – about 55-60*F.
Followed shortly thereafter by a visit from a Hungry Hungry Hippo:
After leaving Mr. Hippo we saw our hyena friends again, this time he had a chunk of the still available hippo carcass from a few days back.
We then headed down to the river to see what the crocs were up to. Clearly the hippo’s were also eyeing the situation, given that have a rocky relationship.
Oh, and back are my brothers animal impersonations, I’ve got the complete lineup of African animal impersonations for tomorrow. But in the meantime, below is his imitation of the croc.
Beyond us, giraffes dotted the landscape. Like a massive giraffe caucus going on (click for the full size image).
This morning was mostly spent looking (unsuccessfully) for cheetah. Over the course of the few hours we spent wandering aimlessly, the usual morning hot-air balloon floated by.
Along the way we also saw some more giraffe, buffalo, zebra, and a mom/baby elephant as part of a larger pack.
This giraffe was seeking the only shade it could find.
We also happened upon a number of lions. One was asleep – apparently worked out too hard eating.
The other just woke up, and was yawning.
And another was lurking in the bushes. Speaking of which, did you know that Simba translated means ‘lion’ in Swahili? Yeah…the Disney team thought real hard about that name. 😉
The vultures were happy that the lions were gone though.
Speaking of which, I promised I’d post a bunch of the hippo-feast the other day, so here’s a link to an album containing the semi-gruesome pictures. Just how life is on the plains. Oh, and I assure you – the smell is much…much worse.
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
