This week we're coming at ya all the way from the wildlife capital! Artist Shake Makelele is one of our Crazy About Kenya partners and he's about to leave his home in Taita Taveta county to exhibit in the UK.  A Royal Overseas League scholarship award winner, Shake has been invited to share his artworks at London's OXO Tower from 06-23 October (details below).  Entry to the exhibition is free, but if you can't wait until then, here's a taster of his talent on the blog!
Up for a 2011 Travolution award under the category of Best Travel Information Website, Crazy About Kenya features a list of the top ten reserves and gives you an insight into the wildlife capital from the Kenyan perspective.
