Thanks to a sweet gig filming, producing, and editing for Akagera National Park in Rwanda, I had my way paid to explore East Africa with my best friends from college. We traveled by plane, bus, boda, and matatu across Rwanda, Kenya, and Uganda, camping along the way. We white water kayaked the Nile River, sailed on Lake Victoria, rock climbed some epic landscapes, safaried up to a pride of lions, hiked through waterfalls, took a lovely coffee bean tour, and fed giraffes. Definitely a trip I won't forget. Here's a few favorites from our journeys.
