Benjy has grown up surrounded by wildlife. I love this photo of my little boy hanging out with the animals! 🦓 🦒 🐘 Standing on our verandah at @segeraretreat was honestly as good as going on a game drive, without having to leave the room! #balconygoals #wildlifeencounters #giraffe #zebra #elephant #segeraretreat #laikipia #kenya

Rosie’s love of wildlife grows every time we step out on a game drive! This drive amidst a relaxed herd of amazing white rhino was no exception. Look at her grin! #rhinoceros #rhino #soliolodge #laikipia #kenya #wildlifeencounters #lovewildlife

In the rhino graveyard, by Sudan’s grave, we had a long chat to Rosie about extinction. After a lot of questions, she grasped that only two female Northern White Rhino remained in the whole world and that meant they couldn’t have babies. I am thrilled to hear that scientists have created two embryos using fresh eggs from Najin and Fatu (whom Rosie has seen) and frozen sperm. Weirdly looking forward to the complicated chat that I will have with Rosie to explain that science might be able to halt the extinction of the Northern White Rhinoceros 🤞 #scienceiscool #northernwhiterhinos #sudanrhino #najinandfatu #rhino #wildlifeconservation #olpejeta #kenya

He loves copying his Daddy on safari, in this case using binoculars to look at crocs on the riverbank. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that his binoculars were the wrong way round! 🙊 He loves that he has his own pair, but I’m doubtful he has actually seen anything through them yet!!! 🤣 #binoculars #samburu #kenya

safarichildren. Not a bad spot for a picnic! We left the car and walked with the kids

Not a bad spot for a picnic! We left the car and walked with the kids through overgrown and spiky vegetation to this rocky outcrop for a sunset picnic with nobody else around for miles! It was so beautiful! While the kids munched on their dinner, some elephants strolled by below, and baboons climbed up the rock in the background. #momentslikethese #sunset #picnic #wilderness #laikipia #suyian #kenya @suyiansoul

After spending the morning photographing rhino up close, we got #BeetleCam to take a family photo of the four of us. Today was our last day of safari before we head home for Rosie to start school 😱. @willbl @thesafaricollection #rhino #laikipia #kenya #familyphoto

Wild walks! Benjy and Mohammed have become firm friends over the past year or so. It was so lovely watching them stroll along hand in hand prodding at elephant poo and chatting in a Swahili-English jumble! #showthemtheworld #maasai #eveningwalk #laikipia #kenya

Two little dumplings cooking in a pot! 🥘 We’ve been staying in a bush camp, bathing with overhead bucket showers in an awesome outdoor bathroom. The staff brought this huge metal pot round for the kids, needless to say they are loving it! #bathtimefun #outdoorbath #waterplay #bushcamp #suyiansoul #laikipia #kenya @suyiansoul

A big shout out to my favourite animal, the African Elephant on #worldelephantday. From the big tuskers of #Tsavo to the gentle giants we just encountered in #Samburu, Kenya’s elephants never fail to amaze us and melt our hearts. #elephant #kenya

Wild swims in wild places with these two (and a monkey 🐒)! It was the most refreshing safari ever! 💦 #wildswimming #wildswim #safaripool #monkey #buffalospringsnationalreserve #samburu #kenya

Spotting crocodiles together on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro river. I love listening to the big sister to little brother explanations that go on! In this case, “see the sausage shaped thing Benjy? It’s a snap-snap”! 🐊 😂 #crocodiles #siblinglove #ashnilsamburucamp #samburu #kenya

Such a treat to wake up and find a giraffe poking her head over the garden fence this morning! Thank you for the breakfast entertainment @theoriginalkerdowney #giraffe #giraffesofinstagram #nairobi #kenya

My kids are wary of dogs (even the tiny ones), but adore snakes! Today we visited @biokenafrica snake farm again (our 3rd time!). Bio-Ken milks snakes to produce anti-venom, and as part of the James Ashe Anti-Venom Trust provides antivenom free of charge to those unable to afford it. They do really important work in Kenya and I love taking the kids there to learn more about snakes. #snakes #snakesofinstagram #snakefarm #biokensnakefarm #watamu #visitwatamu #kenya

Will and I realised we hadn’t been in a Tuk Tuk since our backpacking around Asia days! Tuk Tuks have become popular on the Kenyan coast. Today we agreed to Rosie’s requests and used one to get to dinner! I love that I get to see everything for the first time again through their eyes! #tuktuk #watamubeach #kenya

Despite being safari-obsessed, a beach break always goes down a treat! We ❤️ the Kenyan coast! #beachbreak #watamubeach #visitwatamu #kenya

A geography lesson for Rosie as we crossed the Equator! Benjy didn’t seem to care at all! 😂 #equator #crosstheequator #nanyuki #laikipia #kenya

This AirBnB keeps on giving... in addition to the 10 border collie pups from my previous post, there is a little farm on site too! Every day at 4pm, the kids help John and Peterson to mix the horse/donkey feed (very messy), and then give out the feed. As an extra hardship, we have to hand feed the baby donkeys! 💕 #airbnb #airbnbanimals #farmyard #horses #donkeys #laikipia #kenya

We arrived at an AirBnB in Laikipia to find it was home to a litter of 10 Border Collie pups! Needless to say, the kids fell in love, as did we! #dogsofinstagram #dogsofairbnb #cutepuppies #laikipia #kenya
