​It’s therapeutic to travel. Well, to me that is. After a trip I usually get back relaxed, with more solutions to my problems, or just not thinking about that which made me mad. It may be something I’ve developed over the years I’ve been traveling, but I also think this happens to everybody. You can’t go on a trip and be mad, you shouldn’t! Enjoy your time no matter your demons, and do it to satisfy your soul. You don’t want coming back from a trip without good memories. There are times nothing will go right on the whole of your trip, there are just those qtgszdph trips, but even then get something good to cling on. Continue reading “Travel Dreams”

5 Reasons To Go On A Luxury Zimbabwe Tour

There are much more than just five reasons to go on a luxury Zimbabwe tour, but these are the top destinations that you just cannot afford to miss while visiting the country!

Zimbabwe is one of southern Africa’s most magnificent countries, stretched out between the Zambezi River to the north and the Limpopo River to the south. Its striking inland plateau, enveloped between these great life-giving rivers, is marked by giant granite outcrops, national parks, rugged mountains and lush forests.

Hotel Rooms Or Camping?

2a6b2ed554df441368c6b7a41088f438We all have our accommodation preferences when we go on our travels. Sometimes it’s not about what we want, but what we can afford. and even other times it’s about what can accommodate us. All these factors, and more, come into consideration when we are looking for a place to stay as we plan our travels. Most of those who stay at hotels are thought to be rich, have the money to book a night for 10000Ksh in the Mara while he or she can camp for half that, or less. Campers on the other hand are thought to be misers or without as much money to get a hotel. All those are misconceptions. I know guys who would comfortably pay for a hotel room but choose to camp(Hello The Kenyan Camper …just saying hi 😛), and guys who stay in hotel rooms after a year of savings.

5 Places You Have Never Been to In Kenya

 

….most likely. You may have been to one or two of the places, but I doubt you’ve been to three. You have to be a really good traveler to have made it to all. I know the assumptions in your mind right now is that these places have to be really expensive or in far away land for them to warrant that title, while in reality two of them are even free, the other three very affordable.aw Continue reading “5 Places You Have Never Been to In Kenya”

The Nairobi Bachelor’s Destinations: Oloolua Nature Trail

NOTE: Read about the first two posts on the Nairobi Bachelor’s Destinations where I shared about The African Heritage House and the Ololosokuan Nature Trail.

The Oloolua Nature Trail is just like any other found in the city. There’s not much of a difference with let’s say Karura Forest trails, but then there is just something about it that leaves you wanting to go back. It has been a while(a year and a half) since I was there, but my photographic memory of the place still lingers. It is one of the coolest and calmest places you will find in Nairobi(it’s neighborhood is a big plus). Located in Karen, you are sure not to experience crowds while you take a walk or a jog around. The picnic areas are also very nice, with benches and well maintained grass for the lovers of the traditional picnic.
