I am a Kenyan born and raised in Nairobi. I love traveling and taking videos and pictures. I am one person who loves learning new languages, so far I can speak 5. I have traveled and lived in almost all the big cities in my country and there is nothing that is always passionate such as going out to see the beauty that this country and nature provide.

Ishmael went beyond what I could expect from a guide. It was fun to walk with him in the park and his information added to the experience. He made sure afterwards I arrived home in torrential rain. He went out of his way to make sure we were safe.
