2013 Gorillas & Safari

Joy Adamson

The following morning we did a new game drive where we got to see the flamingos on a closer range, some hyenas and also a wonderful view over Lake Nakuru. After lunch we left the national park and headed for Lake Naivasha. We arrived at the campsite called Fish Eagle Inn sometime in the afternoon. From there we went on an hour long boat trip to Joy Adamsons home Elsamere. On the way there we saw many birds, some hippos and a dead phyton.

Joy Adamson is the woman who got famous for her lioness Elsa and her cubs. Joy also took care of other animals and got a lot of recognition for her work to preserve wild animals in Kenya. Joy was murdered in her home by one of the servants. Her home has since then become a museum. Anyhow, at her house we got served tea and biscuits in the garden. While having our afternoon tea we watched some Columbus monkeys play in the garden. After the tea we saw a movie about Joy and her life and then we returned to the campsite.
