January / February 2017
After Ethiopia I visited Kenya. Kenya has developed strongly since my last visit to this area in 1992 and is now comparable to countries in Southeast Asia.
Safari is expensive, nevertheless the park fees are constantly increasing. On the other hand, every year thousands of animals fall victim to poachers, so that tourists get to see fewer and fewer animals. Especially rhinos, elephants and big cats are affected. On my first trip in 1992 I saw several rhinos, on this trip none more.
