Intrepid Journeys - Kenya (Peter Elliott)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2003

"I've never really travelled much, let alone somewhere as challenging as Kenya." In this Intrepid Journeys episode, actor, presenter and paraglider Peter Elliott lands in Nairobi, and is overwhelmed after meeting inhabitants of a massive slum on the edge of the city. Then he sets off on safari across Kenya, visiting an orphanage for young elephants, camping near crocodile-infested rivers, and spying all kinds of wildlife, all the while dealing with an unfortunate run of the runs. Elliott also gets to meet the inhabitants of a Maasai village. He feels better for the whole experience. 


It has been two weeks and I feel I have barely scratched the surface of Africa, and yet it has scratched beneath mine very successfully. The dichotomies bewilder me and defy my attempts to rationalise them and find a way for them to sit with me — the sheer profusion, colour and vibrancy of life, alongside the same death. The pollution and beauty, the care and hatred, the wealth and sheer grinding destitution, the staggering array of diseases. And everywhere the numbers of people needing and wanting hope, possibility, a future.
– From the second to last day of Peter Elliott's Kenyan travel diary
