Good Morning from Kenya. #safari2019 #familysafari
If you ever come across with an elephant baby alone don’t get close stop & tell your driver to run , As today we were chasing by an adult elephant only few meters away from our car when our driver back driving trying to save our life’s , If is not the electric wires wall we reached on time we could have been smashed by that elephant. It’s a shocking moment , so close . #kenyasafari #safari #lewawildlifeconservancy
Great trip to Lewa in Kenya 🇰🇪 Awesome to see so many rhinos, including this little one having fun one evening. A good event raising money for @tusk_org  #wildlife #wildlifephotography #lewawildlifeconservancy #lewasafaricamp #kenya #africa #ig_africa #love_africa #african_portraits #nature #travel #igscwildlife #africanature #safari #bigfive
Out of shape, but still faster than the rhinos 🥴 . Just an incredible setting for a half-marathon. Very grateful for this. Came after a pretty traumatizing day for me and whole group I was with. For me an elevated heart rate and nature are always the perfect processor for a full head. Thanks to all the staff. Thanks to @altrarunning for making comfy boots. . #running#trailrunning#kenya#lewawildlifeconservancy#altrarunning#altraparadigm#safarirun#safaricommarathon
H i t c h h i k i n g 🦏 ____________________ I’m back! Not much connection lately, but after a week with @nrt_kenya (on assignment for @biographic_magazine) I’m back at @lewa_wildlife. So many wonderful moments and sightings, but I think I’ll start with something a little different - a gorgeous starling and an oxpecker hitching a ride on a giant white rhino. Photos of rhinos will be forthcoming, too, of course. Soon. 😊 Three more nights here, then one in Nairobi, and from there to Malawi! 👣 . . . . . . . . #karibukenya #lewa #starling #oxpecker #birdsofinstagram #lifethroughalens

rhinos look prehistoric 🦏
R h i n o s • o n • t h e • r i s e 🦏 ____________________ When I was at @lewa_wildlife last time - staying at @lewa_house more than seven years ago - I got to spend some time with Nicky, a blind baby rhino who would become introduced to the world shortly thereafter through David Attenborough’s BBC Africa series. While Nicky sadly didn’t survive to see adulthood, rhino conservation is flourishing at Lewa. From a population of 15 rhinos in 1984, the Lewa-Borana Landscape is now home to some 100 black and 94 white rhinos, making it a key area for rhino conservation in East Africa. I’m not here to cover rhinos - my assignment for @biographic_magazine concerns human-elephant conflict - but @nrt_kenya, a major player in conservation questions in this part of Kenya, is based at Lewa, so I’ll get an opportunity to reacquaint myself with the conservancy and its wildlife - including, I hope, some of its rhinos. Last night I fell asleep in my tent to the sound of barking baboons (leopard!) and roaring lions. The African bush... it’s quite something. And now, if it doesn’t start raining, it’s time to head back out. 🐾 . . . . . . . . . . . #lewa #rhinoconservation #everydayextinction #bbcafrica #kenya #lifethroughalens #africananimals #africanature #african_portraits

Big canvas excitement! I have spent the whole week trying to work out a composition of Mount Kenya with a pair of cheetahs in the foreground. This involved trawling through 7 years worth of photo reference (and lots of tangents down memory lane) to find out, do I have a good pic of Mount Kenya from a certain hill in a certain light..? As you can see by the end of the week I’ve really got far... well, at least the canvas isn’t white anymore.. it’s going to take a while. #lewa #mountkenya #cheetah #bigpainting #composing #chinstroking #landscapepainting #oilpainting

#tbt  3. Even though the marathon flags off at 7am, misting stations are a must have. It gets quite hot quite early in these equatorial necks.  #everystepcounts #safaricommarathon #wildernesstones #viewbugfeature  #sombrescapes  #tembeakenya #sunrisetones  #sunrise  #purplehue  #smallplanes

It’s the Lewa Next Gen research vehicle! Yesterday we met with Geoffrey Chege - Head of Wildlife and Conservation & David Kimiti (@kimeeti) - Head of Research & Monitoring, who walked us through how the vehicle will be used by the @lewa_wildlife Research team. If you have been to any @lewanextgen events you have been part of turning this goal into a reality. Every donation, no matter how small, has helped. A huge thank you from everyone and stay tuned to learn more about what’s in store for the research vehicle! 🐘🐆🦏🦓 • • • #lewanextgen #lewawildlife #kenya #conservation
Minimoons and marathons 🍾🌍
Afgelopen zaterdag was het de 20ste editie van de @safaricommarathon. Meer dan 1400 renners van over de hele wereld namen deel aan deze schitterende (halve) marathon. Hoe gaaf is het om te mogen hardlopen in Unesco gebied tussen de wilde dieren?

I ran the Lewa Marathon but what I truly did was: I conquered myself and got the Lewa Marathon off my bucket-list. • At 9k I was ready to hop on to the next bike and be carried to the finish line but I braved on. Walked some more, ran a little but mostly hobbled all the way to the finish. • While I ran, I also thought a lot about how life is an actual marathon.  Everyone is running their own race, the one they signed up for. Blisters and aches or not, you will have to get to the 🏁 finish line. • I finished in 3:34:49. Next time I will do better.  Pictured above, I was looking for sunglasses for my signature finish line picture, but it didn’t come out well so this is all you get. • #lewamarathon #lewamarathon2019 #safaricommarathon2019  #safaricommarathon #marathonersofinstagram #marathoner #bucketlist #bucketlistchecked  @safaricommarathon @safaricomplc_ @lewa_wildlife @nikerunning
The tradition of a BRCK team outing at the Lewa Downs Marathon continued this year with even more runners. Pictures by our own @cyrus_kiiru
