WILD AFRICA: A KENYAN SAFARI ADVENTURE
Join Fia Turczynewycz of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardeno, Miami University's Project Dragonfly, and the RRT family, as she tells tales of adventure of a weeklong solo safari throughout Kenya's ecosystems. Safari, a Swahili word meaning «journey», describes a tour of wildlife watching, culture experiences, and sightseeing throughout the many national parks, game reserves, and wildlife sanctuaries in East Africa along dusty, dusty roads.

Fia's journey took her to an eco-camp in Nairobi, Amboseli National Park, Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate National Park, Lake Nukuru, and the Masai Mara. Each location was filled with wildlife, adventure, Masai culture, and a mishap or two. Traveling by 4x4 Safari jeep, boat, bicycle, hot air balloon, and by foot, experiencing the African wilderness was something Fia had only dreamed of. Elephants, zebra, lions, giraffes, wildebeests, impala, hippo, ostrich, rhinos, and so much more were encountered daily. In addition to the wildlife experiences, listen to stories of being a solo woman traveler, which was highly unexpected throughout Kenya, and often brought on surprised looks and endless questions.

Join us as Fia recounts the first moment she saw an elephant in the wild; being immersed into a Masai village filled with culture and colors; witnessing the Great Migration with her own eyes; and tells the tale of her safari jeep being stuck in the mud with 8 lions less than 50 meters away. Not just a wild safari, Fia set out to experience a world on her own, and came out of the trip with a renewed spirit – with absolute pride, confidence and rediscovery of who she is and how strong she can be. Traveling has a way of doing that. Traveling to Africa, well, that’s just extraordinarily magical.
