Sundowners

There are plenty of things to fall in love with in Kenya but one of the easiest is the tradition of the ‘sundowner’. Straddling the Equator, the sun goes down in Kenya at much the same time all year-round. But it does so spectacularly – typically in a blaze of gold tinged pink (but deep red in Tsavo thanks to the red soil) – that watching the sun go down has become something of a national pastime and a firm favorite with visitors. Planned to coincide with the end of the late afternoon game drive (if in the park), the sundowner setting may comprise of folding canvas safari chairs, drinks, a camp fire and of course a stunning view!
