One More Trip to Kenya

Rhona Lewis

It’s so tall that, even though it’s on the equator, where the weather is mostly warm, this mountain is topped with snow. Now imagine seeing tens of thousands of animals storming across the savannah; a huge expanse of vast, grassy land. We’re going to fit that into this visit, too!
