Due to the rain and the shut down of Hell's gate due to a lioness/cub sighting, we decided to visit the Equator marker. Was a little bit disappointed, since it was just a sign off the main road, so not sure if authentic. It was...More

On our long drive from Ol' Pejeta to Lake Elementaita, we took a short break at one of the Equator Marker stops. These are typical tourist traps with exorbitantly priced souvenir shops (you must be an expert bargainer) which display a wide variety of African...More

The Equator line that passes the globe exactly in the middle.Here you will be shown how the water moves south and North of the Equator. Learn about this geographical feature and have enough photos.A good idea indeed.
