Ndololo Camp in Tsavo East National Park in Kenya
Tsavo East National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 11,747 square kilometers. Opened in April of 1948, it is located near the village of Voi in the Taita District of Coast Province. The park is divided into east and west sections by the A109 road and a railway. Named for the Tsavo River, which flows west to east through the national park, it borders the Chyulu Hills National Park, and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania.
The park can be accessed by three main gates, from Voi through the Manyani gate, from Mombasa through the Bachuma gate or from Malindi through the Sala gate. There are also several airstrips in the park that allow chartered light planes. Inside the park, the Athi and Tsavo rivers converge to form the Galana River. Most of the park consists of semi-arid grasslands and savanna. It is considered one of the world's biodiversity strongholds, and its popularity is mostly due to the vast amounts of diverse wildlife that can be seen. The park also offers camping and several geographical points of interest.
The slightly larger Tsavo East is generally flat, with dry plains across which the Galana River flows. Other features include the Yatta Plateau and Lugards Falls. Wildlife in Tsavo East includes black rhinos and hirola antelopes.
Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for birdlife and for its large mammals. It is also home to a black rhino sanctuary.

A well crafted composition with a lovely tonal palette. The overhanging fringe of the hut creates a great sense of depth. Good light and tonal contrasts; very good sharpness.

Živjo, danes gre pa moja prva kritika tebi :) Zdaj sem pa zares odločena, da moram čim prej realizirati treking po Keniji...v planu je že nekaj časa, problem je le v tem, da nihče noče iti z mano. Uffff...
A takšen je pa pogled iz hiške, kjer bivaš? Všečno...zelo všečno. Jaz bi bila najbrž zelo kmalu pokonci, samo da bi videla sončni vzhod (si predstavljam, da je čudovit). Čudovita kompozicija, ki jo nadgrajujeta dobro izbran pogled in tople (afriške) barve.
Lep dan še naprej, Staša

I can see you're back, Africa :-) You are very brave, the roof fall occurred, and no rain falls and the sun is not shining :-)
This is a good picture, nice colors and interesting spectacle. I've never been in Africa.
Nice view, good perspective, I like it and interesting.

Hello Vojko, Very quiet looking scene. Interesting buildings, they look well maintained. but like nothing I have seen before. Good composition. I like the way you have used a roof or cover to take this shot. It would appear that the small bushes are probably planted and not from the wild. Did you go on a photography safari there? I have several friends that have done that in Kenya and Tanzania. Have a good weekend. Roger

Dobro jutro, kod nas pocinje dan sa oblacima.
Veliki lep nacionalni park i zemlja ...
Lepo mirno mesto, dobar pogled uokviren trskom sa interesantnom arhitekturom i mnogo zelenila, oblaci najavljuju promenu vremena, dobro ste prikazali bojama i lepom fotografijom.
Lep vikend i vreme, Paja.

prelepa pokrajina, ki ji ti s svojim okularjem dodaš dodano vrednost. Enkratne barve te res lepe kompozicije. Perfektna ostrina in enkraten pogled. Bravo

Hi Vojko. A very nice framing on this rural landscape. Light and colours are the highlight.
