Just back from Kenya few pics

Recommended Posts

Hello , 

just back from Kenya with Work , thought I’d attach a few interesting pics I took.  

So series of pics 1, 

stopped in a harbour area, had mooch around next morning and discovered these tracks ..

seem a little old from the hardened edges. 

My initial thoughts were leopard , the lolldiaga area holds a large amount of leopard , around 30 males across a 140 000 acre area , however one landowner mentioned in passing that the main lion pride had recently suffered its alpha male being driven out by 2 younger males. 

The older male was apparently going around injured and was expected to be found dead sooner rather than later

A couple of days later I was working through the night in a machine and had an interested observer , he disappeared before I had a chance to charge my phone but the next morning I took a few snaps

Kenya not too bad mate 

Pretty safe in lodges etc 

obviously walking around down town etc wouldn’t be the best idea but in all honestly I think it’s as safe as you can get really

You in the Paras Stiffmeister? My mate has just got back from Kenya too with work. 

No I’m not a para mate 

I’m not infantry capbadge, so I’m not in 2 or 3 para , 

i am para trained though did p coy straight after training , so In my role as a combat engineer I have worked with the lads from both 3 and 2 para for over a decade. 

My role is primarily to support them , I deliver counter mobility, ease of our mobility, demolitions, sme knowledge of combat engineering although I specialise in airfields both temporary and restoration effects 

lots of nomenclature there rabbit hunter mate so I’ll answer easier 

I blow doors off for the paras to run through lol

I’ve been to Mombasa mate years ago , been to Kenya a few times now with Work so done all the sea fishing, windsurfing stuff etc and Mombasa is the place to do it . 

Apparently it’s gone savagely down hill and most tourists do the lodge thing nowadays

yeah the beers are still tusker and white cap. Can’t get away with tusker but a cold white cap on a hot African evening is hard to beat imho
