Narok to Naivasha, Kenya, Africa - 5th November 2010

The next leg of our honeymoon in Kenya takes us back up the unbelievably-potholed road to Narok and Mai Mahui and then left towards the town of Naivasha, or more precisely the lake nearby. Apparently home to the largest expat population in Kenya, as well as hungry, hungry hippos, it's a popular stop on the regional safari circuit. We spend just one night there, but cram in a boat trip on the lake, watching hippos graze at night and, on the following day, mountain-biking through Hell's Gate National Park.
