Lewis Hamilton says to be welcomed by the Pokot people in Kenya was “something different entirely and a massive honour I don’t take lightly”.

Lewis Hamilton has posted another update on his journey through Africa, this time from Kenya. The Briton visited the Reteti Animal Sanctuary – “the first indigenous community owned and run sanctuary in Africa”.

“Thank you to the wonderful people at the Reteti Animal Sanctuary for not only hosting us, but more importantly, dedicating their time to rescue, research and conservation,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.

“They’re the first indigenous community owned and run sanctuary in Africa and the work they do for these animals should be an inspiration to us all.

“They take in orphaned animals who likely wouldn’t make it on their own and release them back into the wild when they’re strong enough.

“This was a truly centering experience, one that reinforces that we all share this planet. We’re not above animals, we’re with them.

“More often, we’re guests in their homes. Every day in the motherland is more beautiful than the last. Much love, Kenya.”

Lewis also revealed he had the opportunity to spend time with the Pokot people.

“I spent time with the Pokot people in Kenya and just to be in their presence was one thing…

“To be welcomed was something different entirely and a massive honour I don’t take lightly. The way I felt here is how I feel with my family back at home. We are all family, anyway.

“I’ll carry this experience, and all my other memories from Kenya and from this journey as a whole, in my heart forever,” the Briton concluded.
