Our urban safari through the Nairobi National Park almost didn’t happen. As we arrived at the entrance to begin a game drive, our truck stalled and the guide, Philip Muguti, looked at us nervously.
Never underestimate the ingenuity of a Kenyan. Philip, my husband and a few passersby, cracked open the engine, gave the battery a few taps with a rustic hammer and push-started it right through the park’s main gates.
