Jen remembers her highlights from Kenya

After visiting Kenya a few years ago on honeymoon and falling completely in love with the beautiful country, I was so excited to be given the opportunity to return to experience life in Kenya away from the tourist trail and to see where Camps first began 16 years ago. One of the highlights of the trip for me was the chance to meet some incredible people and characters along the way. Our first stop was our flagship camp, Camp Tsavo,...
