Distance from Raleigh, NC to Nairobi, Kenya.
The trip of a lifetime. We spent two weeks on a Jeep Safari in Kenya. We thought visiting the Pyramids at Giza was the trip of a lifetime before we went to Kenya. Nature at its best. All the large cats, elephants, giraffes, water buffaloes, etc. We witnessed the “Great Migration”, which not too many people are able to see. The sounds are fearfully strong. You think you are alone with your guide, but once some activity (a kill, the migration) is noted they are on their cb’s and the next thing you see are 5 to 10 other jeeps arriving all with the same purpose of viewing that particular activity.

A Word a Week Challenge
The Great Migration is a cycle of life and death, played out on the plains of the Serengeti (in Tanzania) and Masai Mara (in Kenya). Some 1.4 million wildebeest, 250,000 Burchell’s zebra and a smattering of trailing Thomson’s gazelle make this year long round trip. In fact, around 250,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebra perish in this tough trek, mainly younger ones. Along the way, many migrating animals become prey to predators including lion, cheetah, crocodile and hyena.
This picture was taken on our recent vacation in Kenya. In fact on our last day. Our guide himself had not seen anything like this. You think you are alone on the large plains of the Serengeti and Masi Mara but the tour jeeps are in constant contact with each other. Once we found these Wildebeest getting ready to cross our guide contacted other tours and within minutes there were around 10 jeeps loaded with tourist like us. Guides are below:
