Taking a Bath Under the Stars at Elsa’s Kopje As the room attendant showed us around Elsa’s Kopje, a luxury safari camp in arid Northern Kenya, my husband and I both eyed the outdoor bathtub built into the rocks high on an escarpment overlooking the majestic African bush. We were bleary-eyed after over 24 hours of travel time to the beginning of our African honeymoon. A bath was in order, and this just happened to be the most luxurious, decadent bath we’d ever seen. And so there we were, taking a bath in the middle of the day and drinking champagne. Not a bad way to start off our honeymoon!

We wanted to have the best African experience and decided not to take mini van safaris as were given by various tour operators. As with our most trips, I chalked out my own itinerary. I have covered Nairobi in this post.23 July 2016: We took our Etihad flight out of Delhi to land at Abu Dhabi and onwards to Nairobi. Pleasant flight, horrible vegetarian food though. We were at Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Nairobi by 1 pm on 24th July where our hotel, Savora Panafric (good deal on Makemytrip) had sent a car to pick us. Great hotel, good location and value for money. We had applied for e-visas online and it was pretty easy, saved a lot of time. Just a stamp on our passports when we reached and we were ready to go.We reached the hotel around 2 pm to find our room decorated with swans and cake.

DAY 2 - After breakfast we make our way to Nakuru approximately 160 kms from Nairobi. The Lake Nakuru National Park is overflowing with wildlife and not to mention Lake Nakuru itself, the view of which from Babboon is stunning. Tonight we will stay at a beautiful camp site located on a dairy farm on the outskirts of Nakuru Town and depending on what time we arrive we may have the option of a farm visit.
