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.”

Nairobi National Park

I’m sure you’ve heard the most interesting thing about this park.. Its the only park in the world within a city. Like all around it ,its surrounded by infrastructure of one type or another. Which is a plus for a city because rarely, or rather it has never been done before in the world thatContinue reading “Nairobi National Park”

Language barrier in Rwanda?

In my head I thought Rwandans speak Kiswahili. Then after a small search as I was preparing myself to come, I realised they don’t. They speak English and Kinyarwanda. So I thought ‘no problem, we’ll communicate using English, right?’. Well shock on me.  So I arrived and had a set of around 4 hotels IContinue reading “Language barrier in Rwanda?”

Using travel agencies in Kenya. 

I’ve travelled quite considerably more than the average Kenyan. And on the other hand, when you put Kenyan ‘travellers’ on a list, I don’t rank so highly. But compared to all my friends, except one or two( minus those older ones who got travelling jobs in their lives), I rank highly. Yet almost all myContinue reading “Using travel agencies in Kenya. “

Travelling alone? 

I’ve already booked my ticket. Like 5minutes ago. Now this trip feels real. Like its on man! I feel excited, not like yesterday’s excitement though. Today’s excitement is calm. Very calm. Its almost mother like. Reminding me the things I’m supposed to do and park and prepare.  Today will be spent doing last minute preparations.Continue reading “Travelling alone? “
