So, that's about it. If we were to do the trip over again we would have skipped the second safari, spent more time at Lukenya and Hells Gate and would have tried to climb Mt Kenya. As a traveling climber it's hard to strike a balance between the tourist side of things and the desire to climb, but in the end we felt that the lack of exercise sitting in the land rover would have been better balanced with more climbing.

So, back to the birds, this was a vulture feeding frenzy on a kill.

So, I hoped that served as a nice diversion on this sweltering day. Conclusions, It was a fantastic trip but it was by far the most expensive traveling we have ever done. Unfortunately there weren't many options to do it any other way.
