‘’ We had arranged a tour for both of you (Arap Uria and Drury) But since Drury is not with us today, we have reserved his ticket until when we will get him’’ added Karema.
On his part, Uria said such a gesture was a one in a lifetime since he has never been in Maasai mara national park.
‘’wow! I am so excited. This is a dream come true. I really appreciate what expeditions maasai safaris has done to my life. I am happy that my little talent has been recognised. To be honest, I have never been to Maasai mara National park’’ said Arap Uria.
The comedian also reveals that Peter Drury had promised him he will visit Kenya very soon for more adventure.
