The next stop was at the Great Rift Valley (for a scientific description of this site, click here, for a less scientific description, clicking here would be better). It's said that civilization began in the rift valley of Eastern Africa.

We then checked into our hotel, had dinner with the brothers who work in Nakuru and called it an early night as we had to get up at 5am for our safari adventure. Below are the photos from the safari. As it rained the night before we had some close calls driving on the dirt roads in the park, but ever trustworthy Brother Francis got us through it all with no problems. Amazing day!

|A surprise rhino! We had been told that they had all been moved for protective reasons, but then we found one. So exciting!|

|Warthogs....like Pumba from The Lion King|
|These trees were just really cool. Brown on the bottom and green on the top.|
