Meru National Park, Kenya

Our adventure began when we set foot in the Nairobi airport and Charlie announced he didn’t feel well.That immediately set me on edge because it sounded like strep. We hustled our bags through customs and met our fabulous leader Charlie Babault and his equally fabulous sidekick, Ethan Kinsey who assured me they could handle anything and of course they did. We transferred to the Ngong House Lodge for the night and the next morning Charlie B secured a bottle of Amoxicillin for Charlie. Phew! And then we were whisked by plane to Meru National Park. 

All 13 of the Paul clan got into the three trucks awaiting us at the landing strip and we made our way to our first camp site. On the way we saw a variety of game:buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, and wart hogs. Camp was bustling when we arrived and we all were excited to actually see what a camp looked like. We had couples tents and kids tents complete with a bucket type shower and loo enclosed in the tent. My understanding was the site itself had not been used for many years and was a real treasure of a spot. Mark(our third guide for much of the trip) and his son James set up the camp. We settled in after an extraordinary lunch and set out again late afternoon for another game drive and sundowners. Our adventure was off to a great start!

    Baba,

    I still can’t get over how beautiful Nina has become. And Charlie…I swear, just yesterday I was holding him in my arms. But, your parents don’t appear to have changed at all! Time is a crazy thing. It seems that this was truly the trip of a lifetime. I am so glad that you all got to experience it together.
