When you think of an African Safari, the thought of lions on the main road to the airport will not cross your mind for sure! The Nairobi National Park, located right down the road from the airport, is one of a kind ‘African Safari’. (Photo: Jo Piazza)
Our urban African safari through the Nairobi National Park almost didn’t happen. As we arrived at the entrance to begin a drive, our truck stalled and the guide, Philip Muguti, looked at us nervously.
Never underestimate the ingenuity of a Kenyan. The truck just wouldn’t move. Philip, my husband and a few passersby, cracked open the engine, gave the battery a few taps with a rustic hammer and push-started it right through the gates of the National park.
