Highlights: Uganda-Kenya Border Crossing
Today we farewelled Uganda undertaking to 430 km 10 hour drive to Nakuru in Kenya. The only real highlight of today was having a very fast border transfer but into Kenya with no problems today. Very glad I got the East African Tourist Visa when crossing into Uganda, while I effectively wasted the Kenyan eVisa it made everything much easier crossing between Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
Nearing our camp for the next two night, the Zima Lodge, it started raining. This was enough for a few of us to upgrade to a cabin at a cost of $35 USD a night. I find it must easier when I don’t have to worry about putting up and pulling down tents on each move day, the shower in the room makes it even better and much easier to relax knowing you have locked up you valuables instead of them being in an exposed tent.
The Zima Lodge supports the East Africa Mission Orphanage which is right next door. On arrival we waved to many happy children who are looking forward to seeing us tomorrow night.
