Land that was once nothing but grass was now thriving with lush trees, creepers, bushes, lots (and lots) of animals, peculiar structures, stained glass art and vibrant architecture. How had I never been here in all these years? I … More Kitengela Glass Art – A Wonderland
We left the capital heading towards the Nguruman Escarpment in the early hours of the morning to avoid traffic. The Magadi road is one of my favourite routes in Kenya, even when it was covered with horrendous potholes which left me with a sore, it still took my breath away. BUT you’d be pleased to … More Nguruman Escarpment – A dusty, humid beauty.
Up next is a quaint little self-catered house with a pretty appropriate name – Ol Talet, meaning ‘the place with a view from above’ in Masaai.

There’s something about camping that liberates you – the simplicity of life and being at one with nature, it’s a breath of fresh air (literally!) that my mind and body need ever so often. It had been a while since I’d stepped out into the wild and pitched up a tent – the urge was … More Camp Carnelley’s and everything in between
Hmm oh, sweet chai o’ mine. Limuru is a breath of fresh air! Tucked away in the lush plains of Limuru is Kiambethu Tea Farm. Once you pass Banana Hill, you drive through a winding road cutting through rolling hills of beautiful tea farms. Isn’t Limuru stunning? Kiambethu was bought and farmed by AB McDonell … More Tea bliss in Kiambethu
I recently ventured out to a mysterious place called Ngare Ndare Forest for the weekend. Usually, when I think of beautiful blue cascading waterfalls and large canopy forests I think of exotic places like Thailand and Brazil.
