I’ve always been a proponent of all counties in Kenya having their own museum. This will allow the different parts of the country to tell their own stories about their culture, history and past. These are places that the local people , students and even visitors can come to learn about that specific area. AndContinue reading “A visit to Kapenguria Museum”

Saiwa National Park
Given that this is the smallest national park in Kenya, I’ve always been curious about it. What would make Kenya conserve a few kilometers squares of land in Kitale? What is so precious there that it had to be preserved? It is this curiosity that made this park get into my bucket list years ago.Continue reading “Saiwa National Park”
Road trip to Lake Magadi
There are a few places in Kenya that have remained in my bucket list for years. And among them has been Lake Magadi. From the tales and pictures of those who’ve gone before me, I always never get a feel of how the place is. It’s like the sort of place only a person canContinue reading “Road trip to Lake Magadi”
Lake Elementaita- a breath of fresh air.
The first time I decided to visit this lake, my mind had a lot in it, I wanted a relaxing place that would help me relax. I love water. I find looking outside and seeing a large expanse of water soothing to the heart. But I also needed calm, I didn’t want boat rides orContinue reading “Lake Elementaita- a breath of fresh air.”
Why you should visit Amboseli National Park
I had always heard that Amboseli National Park is the one park in this country that one is guaranteed of sporting most animals within an hour. I had always found that fascinating. I mean, each park has its glory but how does this one look to have such excellent praise? But on the other side,Continue reading “Why you should visit Amboseli National Park”
Kitui Road trip – Ikoo Valley & Nzambani Rock
Coming back from Ngomeni felt surreal. Mwingi and it’s environs really blew my mind away. It’s the kind of place that looks rustic yet self sufficient and stays with you way after you leave it. I talked about our first day here . So we came back to Mwingi town and looked for a placeContinue reading “Kitui Road trip – Ikoo Valley & Nzambani Rock”
Mwingi, the rockiest town in Kenya?
I grew up thinking that Ukambani was what I knew it to be, dry, no water and a lowland. Until in my adulthood when I got to know that actually a considerable population of Kamba people live in constituencies that have enough rain and they have water all year round. But my biggest surprise wasContinue reading “Mwingi, the rockiest town in Kenya?”
Eventually, it will sprout.
I wish I could capture this moment for you. For us. For the future. For the times when I’ve gone back to words I wrote when in the thick of things and how they’ve saved me. They have reminded me that i’ve been here before. And I made it out alive. But I feel thisContinue reading “Eventually, it will sprout.”
We started this day with the intention to visit both lake Chala and Lake Jipe as they are less than 50 kilometers away from each other. I’ve spoken about the morning visit to lake Jipe here. But one thing I didn’t mention in that post about our morning is that we encountered a herd ofContinue reading “Lake Chala”
This was actually my second time to visit this lake. The first time I wrote about it here and that was more of a group trip. This second time, proximity to Lake Jipe and Lake Chala is what made me actually choose to stay at Saltlick. But I had one major concern. As much asContinue reading “Lake Jipe”
