Biking. With ZEBRAS, GIRAFFES, PUMBAS, ANTELOPE, OH MY! I will let these pictures speak for themselves. 100% real life and still pinching myself to realize it wasn’t a dream. 

This is Hell’s Gate National Park, which is about an hour and a half north west of Nairobi. For us, this 16 km bike ride was the first part of a full-day tour, which I HIGHLY recommend (and would be happy to provide our tour guide’s contact info to anyone who would like it). We booked through a popular tour website, but learned that by contacting the guide directly, you can save at least 20% – protip.

By far, this was one of the major highlights of my trip. Seriously, biking with zebras?!? Stopping for a giraffe to cross the street?! Where else in the world can you do that? Loved, loved, LOVED it.
