What you need to know:

  • There is a delightful dawn chorus of birds, because the garden is home to many species.
  • A pair of hamerkops had built their layered nest in a tree right outside our banda.

There was no need to decorate a tree or roast a turkey this Christmas; both our sons were away. My wife suggested that we should explore a part of Kenya we had never visited – Rusinga Island on Lake Victoria and the nearby Ruma National Park.
