In October and November 2014, I took a peek into East Africa (Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda). I plan to return in 2016 to revisit those countries and see all the other countries in East Africa. So these photos are just a tease of coming attractions.

If you'd like to travel with me and go on a real adventure in East Africa, book a trip with me!
