A Hiker’s Heaven: Namanga.

As I said in this post here, I’m increasingly getting addicted to travel. If you’ve had the chance to travel a few times, you know what I mean. Going to new places is always exciting. Even more so when it’s out in the wild- nature is therapeutic to the mind and soul. Don’t believe it? Try for yourself and see. Recently I went for a hike in Namanga and what a time it was! Read on to share in the adventure… Continue reading “A Hiker’s Heaven: Namanga.”

Bogoria/ Nakuru Waterfowl Count with Nature Kenya

In my previous post, I let you in on the importance of wetlands to birds. In case you missed it, catch up here. Carrying on with the narrative, today’s post is about the Lake Bogoria and Nakuru waterfowl census as I had promised. Continue reading “Bogoria/ Nakuru Waterfowl Count with Nature Kenya”

Celebrating and Conserving Kenya’s Wetlands

Happy world Wetlands Day! If you didn’t know, now you do. What’s the significance of marking such a day? You may ask. Wetlands are important as they support livelihoods, the economy and provide ecosystem services like enriching soil, purifying water and sheltering endangered species. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may have noticed I’m an avid birder. Wetlands are especially important to birds as you shall read shortly.

Unforgettable Camping in Samburu

Hey peeps! Hope your year is off to a great start? Mine is but typical of January, it’s a slow month. And after my Christmas holiday in the village regaining momentum is proving tough. Even writing this post is a struggle! Anyway, join me today as I look back at one of the most amazing trips I took last year. Continue reading “Unforgettable Camping in Samburu”

Highlights 2016

I’ve come to notice that the year moves at the speed of light during the last quarter. One minute it’s October 1st, the next we’re singing Christmas carols. That in contrast to the beginning of the year where each day seems to have 30 hours. I can’t believe it’s December already. And this has been quite a year for me. Continue reading “Highlights 2016”

My Nature Kenya Experience

There are things we wish we had discovered earlier because they are so amazing. It’s only in May this year that I discovered Nature Kenya, even though it’s been in existence for ages (since 1909 actually, when it was founded as the East African Natural History Society). It is a non-profit conservation organisation that works to promote the understanding and conservation of nature. To find out what I like about N.K, read on… Continue reading “My Nature Kenya Experience”

Road Trip to Suswa

Before I started running this blog, I hesitated a lot. I didn’t know what I’d be writing about. Being ‘just another blogger’ was something I feared greatly. Going with the crowd and following trends has never been my cup of tea. As such, it took me very long before making the first post. But a good friend of mine encouraged me to just start and things would soon fall into place. So I did. And now, it’s increasingly looking like a travel blog what with all the trips I’ve been making. Continue reading “Road Trip to Suswa”

Conquering Mt. Longonot

At the beginning of this year, one of the things I really wanted to do was travel more. When you come to the realization that life is happening every day, enjoying it becomes important. There’s no point in waiting for the day that everything will be ‘perfect’, when you’ll have everything, to finally enjoy life. Continue reading “Conquering Mt. Longonot”
