A feel of the culture of the Kenyans. I like the kalejins, something about the young men’s hut close to the gate so they can protect the family.😊

This is worth seeing especially if you've been travelling around the country as there are houses from many areas and it's interesting to see the differences and similarities, more of the latter it has to be said. There is a tribal dance show at 3.30...More
