Hiya! Michaela Guzy, Founder of OhThePeopleYouMeet.com, reporting live from a crazy storm rolling right over Joy’s Camp in the Shaba Conservancy in Northern Kenya.

I have over 600 photos in the first couple days of my trip!  The selection below has been carefully edited for your viewing pleasure to give you just a taste of how just one place, can have so much variety.  Saruni Samburu is:

–  a luxurious tented lodge.

– with delicious Italian food, the owner Riccardo hails from Italy, served by Sebastian (he will always claim it’s squirrel– it’s not, it’s pasta).

– surrounded by some of the most ruggedly beautiful settings.

– with five species that can only be found in Eastern Africa (pictures are all below).

BUT…what makes it truly unique is the dedication to the local community, through employment, co-operatives and renting the land from the people.

Including driver and guide LEPAYON who managed to hold his calm when the elephants decided we had gotten a bit too close (below).

The lioness patiently waiting to feed her two cubs.  She was hunting alone and ended up feasting on a baboon

Baboon, and no, not the same one that the lioness above ate

ELEPHANTS!  These guys are everywhere
