Home, gardening, the origins of man

I have recently come back to camp after a few days at home, away from the office. It was great to be home – I really enjoyed spending some time with my mum and sisters and one of my brothers. Here is a photo of me with my mum and one of my young sisters.


During my break from work I also had a chance to visit the National Museum in Nairobi and have a look at their gallery with some of my friends. The information about the ancestry of man was very interesting, and I learnt a lot about the origins of humans and the discoveries that were made in Kenya. Sorry about the flash reflecting off the glass!


I also helped my mum at her small vegetable garden and she was really happy to have me around. My sister was also on holiday from school for two weeks; my mum was a happy person having all of us at home. It is not common to have the whole family around at the same time together. I was sad to leave my family, but I am also glad to be back working for the lions and the community.

We don’t have any more news from Ritei about the attack on cattle at the moment. I will let you update you when I hear from him.

    You have a beautiful family Antony. It’s nice that you had the opportunity to spend time with them. Your Mom must be very proud of you.

    I’m glad you were able to visit your mother and your sister (especially while she was on a school break) and spend some time browsing the museum. Cheers!

    Antony, thank you for sharing so much of your daily world with us. Your enthusiasm for your work, and life in general, is a welcome breath of fresh air, which you avidly share with the entire global community through this blog. School will soon open and I shall endeavor to tell some of your story to the students. Real life stories of African savannah, Kenya, Maasai, and, of course, lions and their guardians! Best Wishes

  • It is great that you are interested in our lives and the work we are doing, and that you will tell our story to your pupils at school. I hope they will be interested and will help support our work too. Thanks!
