Only downside, and not Francis fault, was lunch st the Bush Garden Restaurante for lunch. Bad food even worst service. Take this restaurant out of the recommended ones !!

So to sum it up it was a very nice experience and I would recommend it to everyone.
We then went to lunch where my guide again left me to dine alone. I had to look for him after dinner. He then said he wanted to stop for "tea" where we went to a place where tourists could purchase items. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING AT THIS SHOP (Golden Eagle Art Gallery) AS THEY ARE SEVERELY OVERPRICED! I purchased a painting there after negotiating a price, and the next day saw a painting at a different shop for 1/3 of the price I negotiated, and saw the same painting in Uganda for 1/8 the price. Do not let them con you with the "first customer of the day" or "you won't find this anywhere else". I feel like my tour guide was in cahoots with this shop and gets huge kickbacks! Lesson learned.
We visited a bead shop, which wasn't on the tour, but was still interesting. Again the driver left me alone. We then went to the Bomas of Kenya which was two hours of different styles of dancing and drumming. Again, the guide left me alone. After I got back to my hotel room I read the description again and realized that I missed an entire part of the Bomas tour, which was the village to see how the different tribes lived.
