Although I've lived most of my life in Kenya, I'd never been on a safari until earlier this year...
This past summer, my mum, my sister, and I spent a wonderful night at The Sarova Salt Lick Lodge in Tsavo East National Park, Voi. We arrived at the lodge in the afternoon, having been warned not to get there too late, as it would be hard for us to go in with the wild animals roaming around.
As we waited to go to our bedroom, we had some refreshments and toured the premises. The lodge is comprised of huts that sit on tall stilts, creating enough space for the animals to roam freely on the ground without any human disturbance. The distance from the ground also provides guests with a perfect view of the watering hole, where the animals come to quench their thirst from time to time.
