Kitale Museum - Kenya

To visit a museum with old stuffed animals after some wonderful safaris, a crazy idea isn't it? Yes, but we didn't come here to what's inside the museum from another era. We came for what is outside...

Outside, there were turtles, crocodiles and a small trail where it is possible to see monkeys. Moreover, we could sleep on the museum's ground, thus it was worth stopping by.

The real reason for visiting was the possibility of seeing De Brazza's monkeys. It is a very shy monkey difficult to photograph. As you can see, we were lucky.
