Poptop van in KenyaAt Lake Nakuru National Park we went on game drives in “pop top” vans that allowed us to get a good look at the wildlife, which included lions, rhinos, eland, Rothschild’s giraffe, impala, cape buffalo, Grant’s gazelle, baboons, waterbuck, a leopard, and many birds.

Over time, we learned to enjoy the “African massage” as we bounced along on very bumpy roads.

Here three baboons investigate us.
