We woke up early and drove to Hell's Gate yesterday. At the entrance to the park, there are bikes for rent for 500 shillings... we tested out a few, and started out through the gate and along the road. We wanted to see as many animals as we could, and luckily we were there early enough to see tons! Zebra, giraffe, warthogs, gazelle, ostrich, crazy birds... dozens to hundreds of all of them.
After biking down the road a few km, we came to this huge canyon... we walked around the top of it, rather than climbing down through it.
These are some of the zebra and a giraffe that we rode by on our way. After this, we encountered a herd of buffalo! That turned our day into more of an adventure than I had expected. We quickly retreated, regrouped, then darted past... the buffalo didn't seem to care at all, so we were just fine.
