    Beware not to be conned by anyone trying to sell you tickets to the park. There are new rules anyone visiting the park should have a gate pass named "smart card" which is issued at the gate and should be carried all the time when visiting any of Kenyan parks.

    vervet monkies
    4 more images

    Kenyans call them simply Monkey, have never heard any other name for this specie. This animal is almost alike to domestic, living close to the hauses because it is the easiest way to get some food. Usually they stay at the rooftops or nearby trees, observing carefully people around. In case one is eating something, Monkies will come closer waiting to get some food or if not to steal it.
    Do not stop your car with the open windows, especially if having food inside it, any kind of food.'''''''.....

    Stuck Lens

    Be aware that it is extremely dusty on safari.Wanting to keep my camera close I often had it in my hand . Quickly however I realized it was causing my lens to stick . I thought I was out of luck when eventually my lens wouldn't open at all . With careful cleaning however it all worked out and I kept it covered there after.

    Vervet Monkeys

    Do not leavey any food out. The vervet monkeys will get it. They are very fast and cunning and not afraid of anything. The will jump out of trees to get through an open window. They are also quite viscious and will bite if provoked. Zip up your tents as well.

    Bottled water only!

    by Homanded Written Nov 18, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Use only bottled water to brush your teeth!
    Do not rinse your mouth out with tap water. Although lodges will tell you that some of their systems utilize filtration methods to get their water, don't trust it.
    A bad case of dysentary will quickly ruin your vacation! Best to be safe than sorry.

    NOTE: Once inside the park, you're not allowed to leave your vehicle meaning that if you're in a group of people and you suddenly have the "urge" you will have no place to go other than your pants.
    Groups look down upon a driver having to make a hurried turn around and rush back to the lodge because of ONE person's carelessness to heed such a simple warning - especially if you're in the process of watching lions feed in the wild!
    You're liable to be sacrificed to the beasts! he he he.
