Lake Bogoria

As you’ve read from my previous post here, we visited Lake Baringo first, checked into the hotel we were to stay at, Lake Bogoria Spa Resort, and then planned to visit Lake Bogoria the next day, with no particular hurry. Lake Bogoria was supposed to be near our hotel, theoretically. Google Maps had told usContinue reading “Lake Bogoria”

A visit to Lake Baringo

I visited this lake while in high school. But as old memories go, I had only one recollection if it. Being in the lake, after a short boat ride and the boat people telling our class teacher to increase the agreed upon money so that they could take us further. Little did they know thatContinue reading “A visit to Lake Baringo”

Hiking Nzaui

This should have been the first mountain I’ve hiked without reading anything about it. I searched for Instagram or YouTube videos on it, and I just got little snippets about the hike. Nothing conclusive. Except one person who said that the hike took them 9hrs 41 minutes, and in my head, I thought that theyContinue reading “Hiking Nzaui”

Ngong Hills, 2021.

I have always wanted to hike Mount Kenya. To be on the highest mountain in Kenya. Obviously because it’s a challenge and a nice accolade to have as a hiker, but mostly to remind that little girl in me, that her passions, her desires, the weird things she enjoys, are valid. But my decision toContinue reading “Ngong Hills, 2021.”

My experience at Central Island, Lake Turkana( part 2)

One of the things that the planners of this Turkana Odyssey had insisted on before we embarked on the trip was a mosquito repellent.

My experience at Central Island, Lake Turkana (part 1)

Lake Turkana has been the most consistent place in my bucket list. Each year as I wrote my new year resolutions, it was always there. So when I saw that Safiri Nasi together with Xtyrm Adventures had a planned trip there, I started salivating. It’s the once in a lifetime kind of opportunity that IContinue reading “My experience at Central Island, Lake Turkana (part 1)”

A pictorial journey through West Pokot

Of all counties that I knew the least about, West Pokot would feature up there. The only thing I had heard of until then, was that my friend who lives there drives a lot of hours to get home. And even then, he has to leave his car some kilometers away and walk the restContinue reading “A pictorial journey through West Pokot”

A visit to Kapenguria Museum

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”
