In the first part of the The Nairobi Bachelor’s Destinations, I shared about The African Heritage House. It is one of the most serene and picturesque destination to go to. The second part of that post is here, a bit for the hikers.
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.
Enjoying the views!
At Ngong Hills, Kenya!
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.

Hiking or a simple visit to a destination? A roadtrip or one ending with a game drive? That’s what goes into my mind every time I am planning a trip.
I am a huge fan of hiking, I think that is the activity I have done most on my trips, Hike over The Ngong Hills and Dear Travel Diary: Elephant Hill are just examples. But that’s me, and I do not travel alone..what do the others think and want? Not that I consider what they want most of the times…hahaha, but it’s good to listen to the others. When planning that trip, you either need to plan the whole thing alone(If you are that good a traveler), or you need to consult everybody. Continue reading “One Random Post”

Our roadtrip to Lake Magadi on 19th September 2015…sigh. The words will be typed later, enjoy the photos first. Continue reading “Fun To Magadi”
So the other day I was busy coding, straining my head with java programming language when I received a text from a pal. ‘Are you on for this?’ read the text, accompanied by a screenshot of a trip planned to Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park in Kiambu county. It had been a while since I was to those sides, and never been to that Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park area at all. Being a Travel Bug is a disease, I didn’t even think about it.
And so on Saturday early morning we were on our way to Thika. It’s a long way out, probably a 3 hour or more long journey. I slept the whole way, blame it on the friends who dragged me out of bed that Friday night. I woke up somewhere between Thika and our destination. Great scenery! We stopped for ‘haja ndogo’ next to some pineapple plantations. Continue reading “Fourteen Falls”
