The “Safari Six” are a group of Brownell Travel Advisors who are making their way across Kenya over the next two weeks. Read on for a journal of their adventures each day!
The flight lasted around an hour, and then our pilot skilfully landed the balloon in a picturesque area. Nearby, breakfast was already being prepared with a glass of champagne to kickstart our morning now that the sun was up.
A few hours later, we caught our scheduled flight up to Nairobi where we had a car waiting for us for the day. We split up, some wanted to do some shopping while others of us headed straight to Africa’s most famous hotel, the Norfolk, where we had a dayroom awaiting us. This hotel has recently celebrated its centenary with a full face-lift and was an ideal place to have a good scrub up and rest, maybe even a massage or sauna, after the safari. The Norfolk has been drawing characters to its hallowed doors since they first opened on Christmas Day 1904. In many respects, Nairobi grew up around the Norfolk, which occupies a central but quiet location opposite the National Theatre.
