Camping On Mount Ololokwe – 12 Years A Slave (Part 2)

The Kenyan Camper

If you’re just catching up, i suggest you read Part 1 here first.

I survived the night, pretty obvious huh? For a minute there I didn’t think I’d make it through what I can objectively say was the worst night in a tent in my life (and I’ve had many).

The morning begins with almost no clue of the what transpired the night before, almost as if the mountain means to apologize.

Camping On Mount Ololokwe – 12 Years A Slave (Part 1)

The Kenyan Camper

Its difficult to explain the power of an idea. It dwells in our consciousness; sometimes relegated, sometimes ignored, but never forgotten. Ever present in the back of our minds, dominating our thoughts whenever we we have a moment to day dream.

I first saw a photo of Mount Ololokwe about 12 years ago and my imagination was instantly captured by this massive mountain emerging seemingly out of nowhere from the desert plains. In many of my travels such as during my elephant encounter in Samburu, and a most relaxing trip to Sera Conservancy among many more, she seemed to continually taunt me and was a constant reminder of the promise I once made to myself.

I had to spend a night atop this mountain.

DESERT ROSE

Travel Diaries Kenya

I was tingling with excitement as the Travel Diaries crew set out on what we knew would be a great adventure, to a place that had only been described as the holy land…the origin of life… spiritual and pure. We would have to drive many hours to get to this special lodge on the slopes of a holy mountain, Mount Nyiru.

The drive up was an experience in itself, at a very steep incline. Only an experienced driver will have the nerves to get you safely to the top.
