And so began my adventure in Kenya...

'Don't let go of the raft.' I kept repeating this to myself as the murky waters of the Tana River crashed over me. Behind us, the tide from the mini waterfall kept pulling the raft back in, almost capsizing us. In the background, I could hear the rest of my group shouting. Each time the water rose up to meet me, I squeezed my eyes shut and gripped my paddle and the raft tighter. Not that I needed the paddle. In fact, I'm pretty sure the guide said to jump out if the situation called for it. And the situation definitely called for it. 

And so began my adventure in Kenya...

But it wasn't all fear and loathing. Between the water-soaked adventures and epic game drives — with lions less than two metres away! — we also enjoyed dinners in the bush, a special Equator Ceremony, meeting the Masai people and feeding giraffes. 

Look out for another photo set and a mini vlog from the trip coming soon.
