Personal highlights

  1. Hell's Gate: named after a narrow rock formation, probably formed by a prehistoric lake
  2. National Park: relatively small resort with a diverse wildlife somewhat outside of Nairobi
  3. Local Tour: 2 wazungu (white people) are having fun with 50 young Kenyans on a day trip
  4. Bike Safari: riding along grazing zebras, gazelles, water buffalos and other wild animals
  5. UNESCO: tentative (open) application to be added to the catalogue of protected sites
