His gravestone bears a circle with a dot in the centre which is the trail sign for “I have gone Home”. The tour also takes you to Nakuru where you will stay in tents in the private farm doing Scout activities. One day you visit Lake Nakuru National Park where you will be greeted by flocks of flamingos and other wildlife animals.
