The Northern Treasures

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.

Too Many Hashtags? #TembeaKenya

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.dscn7927

Kenyan Travel Blogs To Read

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.

Struggles Of A Traveler

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.DSCN7987 Continue reading “Struggles Of A Traveler”

One Random Post

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”
