BEAUTIFUL KENYA 1


It is Winter in my part of the world so there is not much to do in the garden, I read garden books, garden magasines and I watch other people’s blogs in order to quench my garden thirst.

Today I want to share the experiences I had while on holiday in Kenya, East-Africa. It is a beautiful country with beautiful nature and beautiful people.

SOMETHING YOU SEE A LOT IN KENIA ARE ELEPHANTS, LOTS AND LOTS OF ELEPHANTS, EATING TREE’S AND SHRUBS, PUSHING TREE’S TO THE GROUND AS IF IT WERE JUST DRY STICKS

ALL THE KIDS HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL UNTIL THE AGE OF 15 BUT CLASSES ARE REALLY OVERCROWDED AND THEY HAVE NO BOOKS OR PAPER TO WRITE ON, NO PENS NO NOTHING, SO IF YOU EVER GO ON A HOLIDAY THERE PLEASE TAKE AS MUCH PEN’S AS YOU CAN, THEY’LL LOVE YOU FOR IT ! tHESE ARE THE LUCKY ONE AS THEY HAVE A CLASSROOM BUT MOST OF THE KIDS IN KENIA JUST HAVE A TREE TO SIT UNDER WHEN THEY GET LESSONS

  2. Wonderful pics. I think the one ape is a ‘Vervet monkey’. We see them regularly here. Gazelle we call “springbok”, I think they may be called something else in Kenya. Then it is Red Hartebeest and under them ‘Impala’ buck. You seem to have had a great trip and seen lots!

    • Oh yes, I remember all those names now that you mention them but there were so many animals all with different names so you forget after a while.
      It was indeed a lovely vacation !!!!
