Camping Trip to the Aberdares!

February was a busy month for us with lots of visitors so Jerrod and I decided to get away for a weekend in the Aberdares. It is a beautiful national park with lots of waterfalls, animals, mountains, gorgeous views, etc. We had an awesome time just spending time together and enjoyed getting out of the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. We never saw another person the entire weekend which was awesome! Sometimes you just need a weekend like this :) We are so thankful for little trips like this.

These waterfalls reminded us of the ones in Kauai.

Our campsite the first night.

There was frost on the ground when we woke up! It was freezing.

This is just part of the road we had to drive on one afternoon, it was crazy steep! Jerrod did a great job and we ended up using 4 wheel drive a lot that weekend.

We saw quite a few water buffalo.

This was our campsite the 2nd night we were there. It was a little nerve wracking knowing you're camping in the middle of the wild but we survived!

A view of Mount Kenya.

Hands down Africa has the prettiest sunrises and sunsets I've ever seen!

A herd of zebras were running from us lol.

Our lunch spot one day overlooking Mt. Kenya!

Trying to drive to give Jerrod a break :)
