    DON'T MOVE!!

    Elephants will keep that watchful eye on you!
    Even if you don't think they are watching, they are!! Give them a path. Never get in the
    middle of them. Always leave yourself a way out!! They will make a path out of you!!
    EXCITING!!!!!
    PS, NEVER -NEVER get in between two ELEPHANTS!

    the town of Voi

    voi

    Voi is a large-ish market town just before one of the gates to Tsavo East NP. It's a very lively town and - apparently - quite prosperous, too. We did not have time to spend too long there... just enough time to visit the endless colourful market, and nothing else. Yet it's one of the most impressive markets I have seen in Kenya: all along the main road seems to be a maret, as if there was no other job to do than that of a salesperson. Bizarre, for sure... and I could not help wondering - with so many stalls - how many people actually do some shopping. There seemed to be no proportion.

    visiting a masai village

    masai houses

    Just outside tsavo east national park, a couple of kilometres off the town of Voi, it's possible to visit a traditional masai village: Maakeena. The visit was not free, the masai ask for about 5 euros for each visitor, but it was very enjoyable. Included is a little show of traditional dances and a demonstration of how to light fire with just a stick and a stone. This part turned out to be the most boring and predictable one. What I enjoyed was seeing their traditional mud houses - decorated to celebrate the birth of a new baby 3 days before, and hearing their tales about traditional life - like for example how a person needs to kill a lion to become a man and be able to get married

    At times we had a personal safari thing going on along our camp line! Just enjoy and take many pics! They will follow the path. Maybe
    next time they will come walking right into and out of camp! That would be very COOL!!

    In KENYA, your not allowed to drive off road!
    You can't make your own:OFF THE BEATEN PATH! If we could we have drove across
    this landscape and visit those ELEPHANTS!!
    A pity, but thats the way it has to be.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Never know what is coming. We're heading
    to the gate. A family of elephants starts
    coming out of nowhere up this slope. My driver slowly backed up a bit. Had to take
    many shots. They could have BEATEN a PATH right over our truck!! Beautiful!!
    HAVE MANY MORE GREAT PICS!!

    "GET OUT WHEN TOLD"

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At LUGARDS FALLS, you can get out! It's
    more of a look-out point. There are a few CROCS & HIPPOS down below. One minni-bus not too close by! But when you can get out! Make the most of it!!

    PASSING BY!!

    Just enjoy, watch them do the: ELEPHANT-
    SHUFFLE! Notice that female looking at us.
    All they wanted was a path. We only backed up about 10 or 15 feet. If we didn't move, thats
    a bad move!!
