We leave around 8.30 as Jackson had to get another car from Nairobi as his car is not yet repaired. He got a friend bringing him a new car overnight. What a service! My youngest daughter is feeling a little better so we first go on a three hour game drive around the Nakuru lake. We have to be out of the gate by 11.30. Kenyan national parks use an electronic registration system and a permit is valid for exactly 24 hours.
Naivasha is about an hour drive from Nakuru. We have a relaxing afternoon as no activity is planned today. There is a heavy storm coming so Jackson was right to plan the boat trip on the lake for the morning and not for the afternoon.
The rain season has not had a major impact on our trip. We had some showers but they never lasted too long and tend to generally occur in the afternoon.
From the terrace of our room at Naivasha Simba lodge we can see waterbucks and giraffes wandering around the property.
