Enjoyed walking through the tribal villages seeing the different building styles for the 42 tribes in Kenya. The performers in the dancing and singing presentation were excellent. So much energy and talent. Acrobats at the end were fantastic.

I enjoyed walking around and seeing the differences between the various homesteads. Also saw a baby warthog there. The auditorium for the show is huge, but there were only 100 or so people attending the day I went. The dancers and the music was good.
