Our team have arrived in Nairobi.

David wrote, the travels to Kenya were super straightforward, although we all felt a little anxious with the ever changing situation it all went very smoothly.
We have met  the two local guides Bongo and Joseph who are very friendly and had a little walk around Nairobi as a team.
Now time for dinner, sleep, and then into the mountains!
