After a lot of work in Kibera, the six interns decided to take off for a day. We spent an evening at Jack’s family farmhouse in the tea estates 80 km from Nairobi. We then drove the next morning, after an awesome breakfast, to Hell’s Gate National Park and Lake Naivasha for some cycling.

We rented cycles for an 8km ride to the river gorge.
Cycling through a national park provided a slow view of wildlife in the park. There were no lions in the park, mostly zebra, giraffe, water buck, boar, gazelle, and birds.

On the way to lunch at Lake Naivasha, we heard a loud scraping noise, the sound of metal on pavement. We pulled over to find a rear shock bolt had fallen out. Fortunately we were near a small town with a mechanic who was able to fix the shock in no time.
