Samburu Game Park

I am now the only surgeon on the surgical side as Dr Maina the Kenyan surgeon is on a well earn’t leave for four weeks so my work load has risen considerably. After working for six weeks in the hospital we visited the Samburu Game Park for a weekend. The following are some of the amazing sights we saw.

I went for a walk in the park with my friend Abdi a ranger I have known for 11 years. A rifle is useful in case a lion joins us for the walk.

We saw a pack of hunting dogs. They are rare visiters to the park and we were very privileged to see them.

There were was approximately 12 in number. Working as a grow they are very efficent hunters

The wreckage of our favourite lodge which was destroyed by a massive floor one year ago. Following this extreme event it has been followed by a year of drought which has killed many animals in the park.

When in Samburu the river was dry when we went to bed and in the morning it was flowing. This water was being enjoyed by thee elephant and we just hope this is the start of a good rainy season

We found with the help of our ranger we found a leopard resting under a bush but a long way away to get good pictures
