The Park will be interesting for those who’ve never seen a wild animal (zoo doesn’t count.) Nairobi is known for its small size and large population of wildebeest, zebras, rhinos and giraffes. It is best to arrive early in the morning when the animals are searching the waterhole and Breakfast. Samburu national reserve is interesting for those who want to see wild cats: lions, leopards, cheetahs and many others.

But to test your assumptions they hesitated because the volcano was associated with many frightening legends that tell of evil spirits that lived at the top of Kilimanjaro and guarding its treasures. And yet after some time, the local leader was sent a small detachment of the brave soldiers to conquer the mysterious summit. Upon arrival, they immediately took to explore lay everywhere, “silver”, but it is, to everyone’s surprise, instantly melted in their hands. On the “shining mountain” there was nothing but the eternal cold of the snow. Then the natives felt the cold silver of the ice caps, given the giant volcano also called “the abode of the God of cold”.
