Re-enter from Uganda:
February 1 Crossing back into Kenya from Uganda, we find ourselves in the heart of Kenya's western highlands. The climate is much cooler here than on the southern plains. The closest town is Eldoret.
February 2 - 3 We visit the Kakamega Forest, this county's last remaining tropical rain forest. Then we move on to Lake Bogoria where we see flamingos, geysers, and a carcass in a tree.
February 4 - 5 Moving south east we reach the atmospheric town of Nakuru, Kenya's 4th largest. The big draw is Lake Nakuru National Park, which has prolific birdlife, rhino, giraffe, flamingoes, leopard and more. Continuing a 'lake' theme, we spend two nights at Elsamere on Lake Naivasha, a conservation centre and game sanctuary.
February 6 We visit Hell's Gate National park on mountain bike.
February 7 Drive to Nairobi and along the way, admire the beautiful views of the Rift Valley.
