Fairmount Mt. Kenya Safari Club – That’s where my wife is at this very moment. And holy shit! She’s kicking back in luxury…! What the Hell…
I’m sitting on my couch eating pizza watching the rain come down in 55 Degree weather…and she’s here. DAMMIT all.
Just kidding ,,,but look at this place. It’s a sprawling luxurious mansion smack dab in the middle of nowhere surround by tons of wildlife. Seemingly lots of giraffes must blanket the place looking at the next picture below I’m guessing.
I also did a little research and it says this place used to be the once private retreat of actor, William Holden back in the day. He used it as a hunting lodge and retreat. ( Booooooooooooooooo! )
I think it’s ironic (is ironic the right word) now that its used for Safari goeers to stay and only SHOOT pictures instead of guns. I like that they are giving back to the area with their tourist dollars instead of taking a “prize” home with them.
The original intent of the place has changed for the better. So kudos to progress in Kenya for that.
SO I am sure my wife is resting comfortably here. Because that what this place is for, a little way station on the dusty road where you can sleep in a good bed and sit by the pool and look out at MT. Kenya and sip some wine.
BUT my wife never relaxes you see. Before she left for Kenya she set up a meeting with a place called Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the local area for an interview for her Blog she writes. She did tons of emailing and calling and corresponding to get this set up.
She got the email from the director just two days before she left to go to Kenya that the meeting was a go. It’s a big coup to go there and do what she will be doing.
But I won’t say anymore. I will let her tell you the whole story when she returns with pictures and the interview she conducted with the staff there who do great things for the Rhino. I will tell you this, for her it’s like walking on the moon with who and what she gets to meet there.
So long story short, she won’t be resting and kicking back much…right now I can picture her sitting up in bed running through her interview questions for tomorrow’s meeting at the place.
I have been keeping an eye on my wife’s 14-DAY Itinerary while in Kenya and I have to assume she touched down safely in Nairobi yesterday, Sunday at 9;20 pm Kenya Time (1:20pm our time) . Because I cannot get in contact with her whatsoever…I think she’s avoiding me…ha!
The first night there she stayed a hotel in Nairobi. Now she has already set off for her first stop in Kenya.
The Samburu Reserve. See Pics below – I Found a map of the reserve along with pictures of the accommodations she may be staying in there….
I’m sure she’s loving it amongst the African wildlife. I am sure she will bring back actual pics of her stay at each place she’s stays…
She is only staying at this place for a couple of days..then it’s on to the next place…:)
