I recently took five American businessmen to Kenya for a week of learning and discovery (click here to read about that trip).   It was a fantastic opportunity to see what life is really like in the slums of Nairobi.

However, I wanted the team to see that Kenya is not just a place of poverty and squalor, but a place of great beauty and stunning wildlife as well.  That’s why, at the end of our trip, we went on a short safari to Maasai Mara to do our trip debrief.

It was a great time of connecting and prayer as a team.  Oh, and we saw some UNBELIEVABLE animals as well!

Here is a quick glimpse into what we saw.  :-)

p.s. You can buy prints of most of these here. Shoot me an email (barry@worldnextdoor.org) if you’d like any of the others.

    Yep! I used a telephoto. But we really were right next to the lions!
