The new quails in town, hahaha! Well, I wasn’t amused of the quails trend(every other year there is a season they appear around my village) so I had to do this. I also missed going to Chaka Ranch when all the ‘Cheers Baba’ guys were taking their spouses and friends. So we planned one to Ngare Ndare Forest. Continue reading “Dear Travel Diary: Ngare Ndare”
So the other day we came across an amazing thread on twitter of this adventurer who had done Mt.Kenya a week or so ago. Hiking is not one of the favorites for most of us, but pretty sure it is in all our bucket-lists. If not then, you should see the photos that @AnnitaJoe1 shared on her twitter timeline, those should be enough to change your mind.
Anyway, we asked Annita to come up with a guest post for us to be shared with all our readers…and finally, it is ready!!! We were expecting her to write a few paragraphs and just show us the photos, but she dived into it fully(Warning: You may reconsider your hiking plans after reading through..haha).We thought we had seen it all in our hikes to Ngong Hills & Elephant Hill (and those tusmall hills everyone talks about, no names please), turns out we are not even halfway there. Take a read… Continue reading “Dear Travel Diary: How High Can You Go?”

Did you read the first article about the North? We called it The Northern Treasures. We recommend you should check it out, just to get you excite and have your wanderlust spirits excited. We got to give a taste of how the North of Kenya ha more to offer than any of us imagine. We promised a few more information of that side of Mt Kenya, and we always keep our word.
So, Samburu & Bufallo Spring National Reserves…
The Kenya Tourist Board (KTB) is quickly turning its attention to the remotest, but well endowed northern tourism circuit to try and save the tourism sector that has been on the downwards trend for a few years now. This has made them advertise the Northern Tourism Circuit more.
Who still keeps tabs on all the hashtags Kenya Tourism Board has created? The keyboard warriors may be assisting in drumming support for the Kenyan tourism industry, but how many do they need? Seriously. I have stuck with #TembeaKenya,the others just do not make sense to me. We may just need to sit down with whoever comes up with these online campaign strategies to fully understand KTB.
How is your May coming along? I bet everyone is wishing for May the 4th be with you. I also do not why. I hope you haven’t started squandering your savings or that paycheck already on pork choma and those bitter waters. Hear me out first, then decide if the Mrs or that crush whose birthday is this May will appreciate this or some nyama choma at that joint on your way to South C (I got you!). Jambojet wants your month of May to take off in the best way possible by letting you fly for just Ksh. 2950! Continue reading “Fly Jambojet This May & June”
Travel blogging, or generally blogging has been on the rise in Kenya for sometime now. Guys have realized the power of the inter-web and started sharing their travel stories, experiences, photos and more via blogs. This has in turn helped encourage more people to travel and others to appreciate our treasures and attractions more. A few years back, local tourism was not a popular trend. Those who did travel almost always opted the sandy beaches at the coast for their getaways. However, due to the good work of the government through the ministry of tourism and culture, travel bloggers and travel instagrammers, guys now know have a variety of destinations.Who would ever have thought you would be saving for Lamu Festival in December?
I took the liberty to share a few of the local travel bloggers I admire and who share the same vision of Kenya being at the top of travel destinations in the world one day. Get to read about them and have a look at their sites, you’ll learn a few tips about travel or a destination you have never heard of.
The struggles of a traveler will of course vary from one to the other. We all travel to different destinations, love to have different experiences and even use different types of transport. As somebody who loves to travel by road and love to camp, I cannot have the same problems as the guy who loves to fly to his/her destinations and spend nights in 5 star rated rooms. So the following are my personal struggles as a young and not-so-known traveler. I’ll try and give out solutions of what I think will help in evading those struggles, but feel free to go the other way if you feel it’s not the best solution.
