7 February 2017, Day 20 Afternoon, Amboseli National Park
We set out at 4 for an afternoon game drive within the 392 square kilometers of Amboseli, which is Maasai for “salty soil”. This is certainly an apt name!
We see common waterbuck, impalas, zebras, gazelles, more zebras, and Maasai giraffes. We learn that giraffes “sit” down for about 6 hours each day to rest their legs, although they sleep while standing.
We find Grant’s gazelles, yellow baboons, elephants, zebras, warthogs, and wildebeest – so many wildebeest. Our guides point out the crowned cranes and spoonbill storks, and the sacred ibis.
Amos tells us that warthogs often share burrows with hyenas. This works out because hyenas are nocturnal and warthogs are diurnal. Imagine.
There are so many, many animals, and they seem calm and content. We enjoy the scenery.
We are back for dinner and an early night – 7:00 a.m departure tomorrow for Tanzania.
