    I prefer something with deet in it. Outside of that we also had these yellow curly bracelets that supposedly repelled mosquitoes. Not sure if they worked or not. But, the locals loved them! And when visiting markets they were very keen to add them into the bartering. A few times, i used the bracelets to lower the price of something I was bartering on.

    Question - Kenya Air

    Thanks Tony!
    I have another question. We are flying Kenya Air from Nairobi to Sarova mara game camp in Masai Mara game reserve. Our tickets say only soft carry on luggage. Do you think this would include my carry on luggage with wheels?
    Thanks, Maria~
