Meru Game Park

We visited the Meru Game Park which is situated approximately 35Km from the hospital which allows us to go there for the day. Dr Claire Smithson lends us a Jimmie Suzuki which is a four wheel drive into which we just fit as it is a small vehicle, however it is a great joy to experience the wonders of the Kenyan country side and see its amazing wildlife. Below are some of the pictures of the animals and birds we were excited to see.
