Consider Getting Physical
For their safari, Madison and Bjorn rented bikes to explore Hells Gate National Park in Kenya. “We rented mountain bikes for $8 and left our campground to start the ride. We opted to do it on our own, without a guide. After grabbing breakfast for less than $1 (eggs rolled in chapati), we rode along the main road until we got to the park’s entrance,” Bjorn told me. Once there, the park ranger gave them a few different route options, and off they went. “You’re literally just biking dirt roads in the middle of a reserve with animals everywhere! There were no fences or anything. Right away we saw zebras, giraffes, warthogs, and impala,” Bjorn explained.
