In June 2018, we did what we had always dreamed of doing; we took our very first trip to Africa! For three weeks, we took in the sights of Kenya and Uganda. And when it was time to go, we realized that we had just scratched the surface!
During our time in Uganda, we explored charming Kampala and watched a brilliant cultural performance. We spent time with our aunt and uncle as they ran their boutique and cafe, Kardamom & Koffee. And we went river rafting on the source of the river Nile at Jinja.
In Kenya, we did some hard driving and were rewarded with encounters with elephants, lions, rhinoceroses and giraffes. And after a week of driving, we took some time off on the Kenyan coast at Malindi. A trek through the nearby Hell’s Kitchen depression at Marafa gave our holiday a surreal twist. And swimming with the fish over the reefs of the Malindi Marine National Park was the perfect antidote to all the driving.
Take a look at the best of our many memories of Africa!
