Some Cool Nature Facts You Might Not Know (or maybe not)

For the past 2 months I have been trying to go on a short trip with my family to no avail. It’s been a mix of the weather not cooperating (continuous rain) and people being busy. I also haven’t gone birding in a month due to a project I’m working on for my business, launching tomorrow. In the absence of trips, I’ll let you in on what I’ve observed on previous travels.

And I’m not immune either. In my twenty plus years of living in Kenya, I’ve been to the Park countable times. How embarrassing! I had an amazing time there last year (check out my experience here –>Going wild in the City). A few weeks ago I had an even more exciting time, read on to find out!
