Lake Nukuru NP Black bolbus monkey

  Today we got up early ( last night was the first decent nights sleep iv had in ages) and went back to Nakuru Game Park. This time around the bus is more crammed. We seen the same things as last time really , but this time game like the rhinos were really far away so we well the new group were unlucky.

 

 We went back to the lake then back to the baboon mountain for lunch. I just sat on a rock and looked out over the lake and park again. There were lizards on the rocks and these other animal that I can’t remember the name. They were funny like large hamsters. I was trying to climb down so I could get a good photo and I think I made the male jealous haha because he came right at me it was only a foot away and the little buggers had pretty sharp looking teeth. I just messed around and had a laugh with the others. We had lunch and went for another game drive we didn’t see anything different.

 

 And Sam came up to me earlier and said that I should ask for my own tent as she heard Steve snoring last night  and it was really bad a few others said the same thing.

I asked Edwin and he said that would be fine and laughed. I have not told Steve yet as luckily I got to keep the caravan I was in last night.  When I got back then played little table tennis and darts had tea.

 

We got told about tomorrows plans and then went to the bar for a few drinks. I am still feeling a bit rough and I have had another three nose bleed one in the night, one in the morning and one when I was eating my lunch weird.  Tonight Sam and myself joined the others and played darts it was really funny Alan and Helen joined in for a little while and then went to bed so we continued for another game then had a drink with the new guys. It's nice they are finally taliking to us. Time to make the most of a nice bed because tomorrow it's a rough camp ( when I say rough I dont mean crappy, It means there are very limited facilities and in the middle of a NP)

 

 

Somewhere I have got thing's a bit mixed up ( my diary was pretty badly water damaged and some pages I could barly read )

At some point drove to The massai Mara where we stopped of at a Massi village then drove to the game park and had a short game drive to the campsite The campsite was ok, cold showers but a nice bar I had my own tent after speaking with Steve 

 

 I will continue with Sunday the morning of the massi Mara.
