Project Description

“When you leave Africa, as the plane lifts, you feel that more than leaving a continent you’re leaving a state of mind.  Whatever awaits you at the other end of your journey will be of a different order of existence.”

~ Francesca Marciano

Nairobi, Kenya

A short drive (only 7km) out of Nairobi’s CBD on the southern outskirts is Nairobi National Park. The open grass plains have a cityscape backdrop and host a wide variety of wildlife. It’s one of the only national parks in the world that borders a capital city.

The park is home to the world’s densest concentration of black rhinos (more than 50). Lions and hyenas are common to spot, but you will need some luck to see the park’s resident cheetahs and leopards. Other regularly spotted species include gazelles, warthogs, zebras, giraffes, ostriches and buffaloes. The wetlands sustain approximately 400 bird species.

Lake Nakuru

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park.

Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on Earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?
