The dust in Enduimet Wildlife Management Area was intense. I’ve never seen anything like this dust. So light that at a footstep it poofs into the air. So invasive that it leaks through car windows and into closed bags and your lungs. So fine that it was impossible to clean off. Really, in retrospect, it was laughable. Our jeep was at moments (and I am NOT making this up) in a “dust wash” with swirls of it on our windows with zero visibility.
In this dust, live all the usual suspects – Maasai giraffe, African elephants, and of course the goats of the local Maasai herders.
We did some amazing things our first day in Enduimet: Bike safari, saw a Maasai well, stared at the stars, drank at sunset, and did a night safari. One of my favorite moments was riding on the back of our jeep, wind through our hair.
