* Kenya has amazing wildlife and the people are very proud of it, we would often be asked if we had been to the Maasai Mara.

Some day I'll surely visit Kenya! I'm crazy of their culture! But I won't forget to create a good qualified trip map on well-way.com just not to be lost in African desertsReplyDelete
