DAY 19 - Leaving Uganda behind, we will head back over the border into Kenya, approx. 300 kms to the cheese town of Eldoret. We will spend the night at the Naiberi River Campsite. Naiberi is considered to be nature’s own creation, designed to take it’s guests as far back as the stone age with a little touch of modern day luxury. It is created on a hilly forest tribal land, which was once home to members of the ancient Sirikwa tribe. Preserved on the site are excavations with stone sides, commonly called Sirikwa holes, which are believed to have been roofed and occupied by the inhabitants of a bygone age. The campsite is Indian owned and so in the night we will feast on an included Indian Dinner.

‘Karibu’ means ‘welcome’ in Swahili and it was the first thing I heard as I got off the plane. On landing at Nairobi airport, we headed straight to the Sarova Stanley hotel, where we were booked to stay. Located in the very heart of Nairobi, near its vibrant city centre and other shopping markets, this heritage hotel has been voted the best in Kenya at the World Travel awards, described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel and tourism industry. It was grand indeed. After checking in, we headed for lunch to its famous outdoor Thorn Tree Café which had functioned as the oldest post office in Kenya many, many years ago.
