"One Round in Kenya"

Recommended Posts

My family and I just returned from Kenya.  We visited Amboseli NP, Nairobi NP, Tsavo NP(also seeing where the events from the film "The Ghost and the Darkness" took place).  We actually got in a day early to cope with "jet lag", but our trip planner was able to get my older daughter and I a tee time at the Sigona Golf Club.  So even though with the time change it was like we were teeing off at 3AM, we teed off and walked the 18 holes with our caddies.  They were both tremendous.  It is a round of golf that ..... I WILL NEVER FORGET!!!

That’s an unforgettable trip.  World travel like that with your daughter keeps the score in perspective…

Hello:

I am very pleased to read about your trip to Kenya. I am originally from Kenya, now residing in Canada and have played Sigona a couple of times. You must have enjoyed the fact that you were playing at 5000+ feet above sea level and the ball travelling a lot further. It's a beautiful country with many great golf courses. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Nostalgic for me.

Thanks for sharing.

Never would have thought about golfing in Kenya, but it looks awesome.  

The safari trip to Kenya and Tanzania was epic.  These photos show I really need to go back with my family!

100% correct.  I was bombing the older "burner" driver that was in the rental clubs, thanks to the altitude.  It was truly a beautiful course.
