The Wild Side

It’s a bumpy, bumpy ride on a twisty clay track. The sun starts peeking out of the horizon. We stop for a while to photograph Zebra, Buffalo, and a troop of Baboons who get way too close to our Rover. But we didn’t come here for them. More bumpy minutes and we finally approach the lake, still shrouded in morning mist. It looks pretty much like a regular lake… except the shores on our side are completely pink. Squawking for a hundred yards on our flanks are tens of thousands of pink Flamingos. Finally, we meet the stars of Lake Nakuru National Park.
