13th Sept - Eldoret

We landed up staying in Kampala = Red Chili camp – for 3 nights due to the favt that there was a "Political Riot" and 10 people died. At the same time all shops and factories were closed down and my springs were also locked inside one of these factories. However the Riots seem to subside by Saterday morning and I was very relieved when the mechanic turned up with my springs. I was so excited with helping him to fit then that I forgot to watch the rugby – NZ vs SA – which apparently we won. We then left for Jinja even though it was only 1½ hours drive – Kampala was now driving me crazy. This time we stayed at Eden Camp just up from Speke camp (which was where we stayed previously – on the rapids) but the Ablutions were not as atrocious as Speke’s.
Then on Sunday we crossed into Kenya and stayed at Naiberi Camp in Eldoret. This is probably one of the best laid out camps we have seen or stayed at. It’s a fairly new camp +- 4 years, but spectacular. I’ll defiantly recommend this camp especially if you have children with you. It’s on a river/stream has a massive swimming pool for the kids, a tunnel walk to go down to the pool or the bar/lounge/dinning room. This area feels like you are in a group of big caves in the evening, the ambiance is fantastic. We had like a special camping bay for us with our own lean-to kitchen/dining area, Very private.
