Kenya truly surprised me and humbled me as a traveler. Not only did the people exceed my expectations in their warmth and hospitality, but the stunning landscapes will stay with me until my next visit. Spending my last day and evening in the Maasai Mara, I gazed out towards the horizon, comforted knowing that all of Mother Nature’s gifts were where they belong. Conversely, I also felt a sense of panic knowing, inside, that it ‘s only a matter of time before they vanish if human beings are allowed to continually encroach on their environment.
I felt as small as an ant in this great wilderness but that’s okay. I soaked-up my last moments at the beautiful Cottar’s camp before saying goodbye to Kenya. See you next time.
