The Rift Valley: The Beautiful Nature of Naivasha, Nakuru and Kisumu

Overlooking the Rift Valley

When you go North from Nairobi, you end up in the Rift Valley which stretches from the Red Sea to Mozambique. I there lies Naivasha surrounded by beautiful landscapes and thousands of animals. At Crescent Island, we were able to stroll around freely just like all the zebras, giraffes, antilopes etc. – time for some animal selfies! 😉

After our encounter with these wild African mammels, Ash and I went on to Nakuru, where his best friend Kenny lives with his baby boy and works at a gorgeous wheat farm – right next to the rim of a former volcano crater. This was the place where I stayed for a couple of days in order to soak in the African farm life and relax for a bit – well, sprinkled with trips to some lakes and waterfalls in the surroundings.

My next – and last – destination in Kenya was Kisumu. Located directly at Lake Victoria, it is a fairly laid-back city. Other than strolling all the way to the lake, I met up with the project group from Germany again and we visited about 300 street kids in the city center bringing them tons of bread and liters of milk.
