The Royal Visit to Kenya Their Royal Highnesses Princess Elizabeth and the Duke

The Royal Visit to Kenya
Their Royal Highnesses Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh will shortly leave Britain for their Royal tour of Kenya, Ceylon, Australia and New Zealand. During their visit to Kenya they will be staying at the Royal Lodge on the slopes of Mount Kenya, the Colony's wedding gift to the Royal Couple. Not far away is the Outspan Hotel at Nyeri where many visitors to the country frequently stay in hope of seeing big game in its natural surroundings. The hotel has an annexe overlooking a watering hole where often wild game may be seen on a moonlit night. This picture shows the Outspan Hotel's annexe known locally by the name of "Treetop Hotel". It is possible that their Royal Highnesses may find time to spend an evening there in the course of their sojourn at the Royal Lodge, twenty miles away.

Princess Elizabeth is the toast of the white hunters of East Africa. Armed with her favourite cine-camera, she went hunting "The Four Hooligans", the giant lions which were featured in the Royal Command Film "Where No Vultures Fly". Within 15 minutes of driving into the National Park on the outskirts of the town she found one of the lions lying three feet from his kill under a tree. Her hunting brake cautiously approached to within 20 yards. The Hooligan rose, sauntered a few yards towards her and then turned back. In these few minutes the Princess, hatless and with a kerchief tied round her head, obtained some of the finest close-ups ever taken by a visitor to the preserve. It was the first time Her Royal Highness had ever photographed a lion.
Photo Shows: Princess Elizabeth (front, near side to the lion) and the Duke of Edinburgh, seen at back, photographed in their hunting wagon when they drove through the National Park, in Kenya. The lion and his kill is seen under tree on right.
