So here I am am on the road to Mekele in Ehiopia, a beautiful but really long drive. All of the sudden Halo comes on in the car radio, everybody is cheering, and I can’t help thinking “is there any place in the world where people don’t love this?”
This video shows my humble experience with the Matatus of Kenya: My friend Tekwane told me, that some of the of even more lighting and that these are sometimes joined by disco balls, posters, pictures, special seats – apparently, some have even installed used flightseats in their Matatus.
The greatest thing however, is that every day there is a new musical theme: there is reggae day, pop day, oldies day, party/dance day (friday), and so on… and the funny thing is, that traffic is so slow in Kenya that the driver has time to do proper DJ’ing while driving.
From ‘Maya ya Simba’ the rock where simba was born to baboons finishing off a Leopard, the wildlife in the Serengeti was so much more eventful than what I have seen in any other national park (Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Manyara). We had three days in Serengeti, which allowed for a full day game drive followed by an early-morning game drive the next day. We were able to go to distant areas to see wildlife play out with no one but us being present.
