When traveling my #1 thing to visit is tea fields.
They are always stunning + you can drink tea. Win Win ▼


We visited an elephant orphanage, where they raise elephants who have been abandoned
and eventually release them back into the wild ▼



And we visited the Giraffe Center where you can feed the giraffes, and get a bit closer than may be comfortable ▼

Besides rhinos, Lake Nakuru is also famous for tree-climbing lions. When Jordan read this from the guide book, it sounded like a myth. Lions don't climb trees, it's an important part of the food chain. But apparently some lions visited the park who knew about climbing trees and taught the local lions how to do it. We were lucky enough to see a family of lions, with three different sizes of cubs. Although the first time we saw them they were firmly on the ground.

The next time we saw them they were posing on a fallen branch:

Then our last morning we saw them for real up in the trees. Hanging out over their recent breakfast:
