The perfect African safari sometimes means incorporating unique and memorable experiences into ones itinerary, thinking out of the box to find the most up to date experiences that will make ones safari extra special. Tree houses can be a really fun and romantic addition to ones safari as i came to discover. Taking a break from staying in a beautiful safari lodge or camp to spending a night under the stars in an elevated and open structure. Enjoying birds eye views and being one with nature while maintaining the same level of comfort and elegance as a 5-star property.

Where to spend a weekend in Nanyuki

LRM_EXPORT_72123112374919_20190714_132959399

Laikipia is one of Kenya’s most exciting safari destinations. I have had friends in the past inquire about where to stay in Nanyuki mostly those visiting as a group and not open to staying in a hotel. While there are a number of  places one could stay i found this holiday home to be perfect for a group of 10 people.

At Mount Kenya Wildlife estate you will find beautiful houses all double storey with a choice of 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms all ensuite. Each has a living room, dining room, fitted kitchen with store, a fireplace for those cold Nanyuki nights, and verandahs front and back on both floors, offering incredible views over wild Africa and the stunning Mount Kenya as a backdrop. They are comfortably furnished and self catering just 25 minutes away from Nanyuki along the Nanyuki Rumuruti road. Continue reading

Sands At Nomad

IMG_20190616_170157-01You are never too old to read a good story or  make one of your own and as far as south coast is concerned, everyone has their favorite. The moment you realize that the Kenyan coast has its own distinct personality. The moment you end up telling your friends about endlessly when you get home. It could be the long enviable beaches to walk on,overwhelming sight of swimming dolphins, the sight of the blood red sun as it dips beneath the sea, the smell of freshly cooked Biriani, a sail to one of the magnificent islands, the Swahili rich cultural heritage, dinner on the beach with a loved one, or the feeling of warm sand between your toes as you stand on one of south coast’s truly endless beaches. The list is endless.  Continue reading

Footprints in Capetown

IMG_20190318_172630_768

Capetown is one of those destinations that I’ve always wanted to visit, and I promise you, it’s worth all the hype it gets! The eagerness to explore this city was a build-up of excitement created by all the photos and videos i have watched. It’s actually a story that began 2years ago when i decided to apply for a passport but somewhere in between i was caught up with other adventures until late last year when i decided to give it a go this year. Well, i always take a screenshot whenever an interestingly looking destination pops up on my Instagram feed. At this point my camera roll is full of places i should visit. 

People from all walks of life call the 5 boroughs that make up Capetown their home. One borough in particular, city of Capetown, served as the location for my trip to the Mother City. Whether you’re a foodie, an art enthusiast, an adrenaline junkie, a nature lover, a photographer, or just someone who loves the city life, Capetown is the place for you. Continue reading

Yesterday I did a post on Olarro lodge and little Olarro and as Part 2 of my post I am meant to bring you with me to the beautiful and stylish Olarro plains, a place i was also guest to during my stay in Olarro. Before that lets head back to Olarro lodge for a minute. Notice how the interiors are beautifully painted all white giving a swahili feeling. The staircase and the bed  reminded me so much about Lamu.

DSCN9377I am unashamedly addicted to Laikipia believe me when i say i never saw myself ever foregoing a trip to this magical region that i have such a long standing love affair with for any other place in Kenya but well, never say never, Olarro happened and am glad because one a veer on my travel radar was kind of exciting and two i get to bring my readers something new and different.
