So old :( Amazing birthday, not so sure about the age tag!
Birthday Surprise My tent was filled with balloons and a few gifts to make my birthday even more special 😍💗
Birthday Balloon Ride 4am rise to get a hot air balloon across the Masai Mara at sunrise! The flight was absolutely incredible, as we're the views! We stopped in the middle of the plains for a champagne breakfast alongside the wildebeest and zebra. Can't think of a better way to celebrate my 30th!

Hakuna Matata Spent time dancing with the Masai warriors and loving our first taste of safari!
Oldapoi Camp, Masai Mara Home sweet home! Finally arrived after a long and bumpy ride. No safari trip would be complete without a broken jeep and a stop at a repair garage 😂 In love with our camp, Masai village and a cosy tent, perfect.

Elephant Orphanage, Nairobi As if my day couldn't get any better, first a kiss from a giraffe then getting to visit these orphaned elephants. Amazing to watch the elephants feed and see how majestically they move. Nothing more magical than an elephant coming to see you for some love and affection. They are just perfect 🐘🐘🐘
Giraffe Centre in Nairobi Started the day with a visit to this giraffe centre and I absolutely loved it! Such a great cause and fascinating to learn more about these beautiful animals. Even got a sloppy kiss from Sarah 😍

Nairobi, Kenya Nothing can quite prepare you for the poverty and complete chaos which is Nairobi.
We made it! Happy to relax with a chilled Tusker beer after a long 14 hours worth of travel. Rooftop terrace and warm complaints! 🍻
