My Moms safari notes-be prepared for anything!

Jump to last reply

My mom (76) is on safari right now and just posted this note on FB

"Can you believe - it almost snowed today here in Kenya. We hit a huge storm with hail 1 inch in diameter and the ground and roads were covered, We were driving in very heavy traffic and it was like black ice. needless to say, we were scared, the driver finally had to stop as the big trucks were swaying all over the road and we could not see, the defroster was not working, we were wiping the windshield with someone's scarf, What an afternoon. Finally back in Nairobi, nice hotel. We have had gread safari's so far, have seen all of the Big Five and many, many more. Tomorrow we leave here for another lodge and then on to Tanzania. Having a great time. Weather has been cold, dry, hot ,, cold and pleasant. We are at the equator. but the hail was highly unusual, in fact Very Rare. I am still shaking from that trip."

So weather wise, in late October, be prepared for anything!
