We went on an evening game drive from our hotel and were captivated by our first look at the incredible wildlife of Kenya. Abundant zebra and varieties of antelope, baboons, colobus monkeys, giraffe and birdlife.

We saw so many animals up close! The conservancy isn't as big as Masai Mara but we were so happy to see so many zebras and giraffes up close!

We traveled with Gate 1. The highest point of the Soysambu Conservancy were birds: thousands of flamingos and pelicans. I have never seen anything like that before.
