Scenes on the Road to Mombasa

Leaving Kijabe. I am accompanying the Seniors and their class trip. I left a day ahead of them . . . too long to drive in one push when I am by myself
Leaving the main road to get to my overnight rest stop in Tsavo National Park. Passing under the Chinese built railroad.
Drove by an abandoned train station
This bull came to the river by the hotel
Leaving Tsavo
Google Maps took me through the Mombasa dump. Darn Google Maps!
I made it
Not long after the Seniors made it. They did it on buses in a day!
Within minutes they were in the water!
The highlight of the trip was watching this elephant charge us. Just by luck I got it on video. We were close, but across the Tsavo river from where it was grazing. I was walking around with the hotel security guard, and he said that the animals know this is human territory, and so they get nervous when we approach. If we were in the wild, their territory, they would either charge us very aggressively or ignore us as they consider those areas their territory. Hmmm?
Turned a corner and saw these giraffes. Before I could get my phone out, they were moving to “safer” ground.
