I Dream of Africa. And I revisit it regularly though my Kenya Photos.

Kenya Photos, A Visual Journey

Travel in Kenya is exactly what one hopes for when going on safari in Africa. The people are friendly, the scenery is spectacular and even though the country is progressing at a rapid pace, it still feels as if you have stepped back in time.

The Leopard of the Masai Mara, Kenya

Many times we found ourselves daydreaming about the past wondering how Roosevelt and Hemingway spent their days as we relaxed at the Fairmont Norfolk in Nairobi.

I envisioned a time when animals roamed freely and when the tribes ruled the land.

There are bits and pieces of tribal life surviving in Conservancy's around the game reserves and the numbers of endangered animals are slowly coming back as photo safari tourism rises and the trophy hunting days of the past are slowly being pushed to the side.

Rhinos are some of the most elusive animals in Africa, but you have an almost guaranteed chance of seeing them in Lake Nakuru.

Kenya is even beautiful when a storm is coming. The dramatic clouds make for stunning Kenya photos.

A young male lion surveys a herd of Buffalo on the Plains of the Masai Mara

This male lion looks a little straggly, but that is only because he is young and his hair is just starting to come in. It won't be long before he has a full mane.

Visiting a Maasai Tribe when in Kenya is a must. The Maasai people of Selenky welcomed us into their homes.

Photographing the Maasai people was a highlight for me. Meeting them really added to the diversity of my Kenya photos.

Sneaky monkey, Kenya

Most people don't think of monkeys in Africa. Everyone is too focused on lions, leopards and elephants. But when you spot these little guys, they are the cutest.

Hippos Bathe in Kenya

Most of the time we saw hippos in the distance, but at our safari lodge in the Masai Mara, we had a hippo pond right on the grounds! Note to travellers, you always need a guide when walking in Kenya.
