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.

Some of us had used all our savings(..in a pretty good way) by the time we got to the holidays we just had to stay in our beds and like your Instagram photos. Several people were down at the coast(as is the norm), good for you. cropped-img_20161203_174410.jpg Continue reading “Watamu Bliss”

What new destination did you travel to in 2016?

We are almost at that time of the year when you start reminiscing of your travels this year, or get on the road if your savings are just maturing to your targets, and for most people regretting why you did not join that roadtrip plan when you had the chance. For most of us, the end year is time to spend with the family and so any planned travels has to include them. This is the time where you want to cry when you look at those roadtrip photos and wish you could rewind the days to then. So, how well did you travel in 2016?
