After three nights in Jinja we crossed back into Kenya, spending a night in Eldoret before getting to Lake Naivasha. While there we biked through the nearby Hell’s Gate National Park which turned out to be a lot harder and hotter than we expected, with less wildlife than we saw during our visits to Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru. I did get a pretty cool shot of three zebra butts.
From there we headed back to where the overland trip started three weeks earlier: Nairobi. We camped for two more nights (20 total), said our goodbyes to the friends we’d made (who still had many more weeks ahead) and helped to welcome the assortment of new souls who’d be filling up all those empty seats on the truck—including our own.
On the evening of June 4th, we flew to France by way of Doha, Qatar and Milan, Italy, arriving in Nice the following morning.
