Photos: Zebras are awesome

Just outside Nairobi — a modern city with skyscrapers and major traffic — sits protected African savanna, where zebras and giraffes and rhinos and lions pose for local tourists and Wazungu who don’t have the time or money to visit the big game parks and reserves.

It’s about as wild as you can get, with a major urban center half an hour away.

I went on a Sunday afternoon, met a few other Westerners, and had two and a half great hours. No cats, but plenty of zebras.

The park also offers the fantastic contrast between protected wildlife in the foreground and Nairobi’s buildings in the background and jetliners on final approach overhead.

(I just got back three days in the Maasai Mara and will post more photos — including lions and a leopard later.)
