Stumbling out of Safarilink’s tiny plane, and vowing to be an overlander for life, I didn’t expect much on my transport to Cheli & Peacock’s Lewa Safari Camp. An open-air safari vehicle picked me up at the airstrip and we drove through bumpy dirt...

Isiolo, Kenya
Cheli & Peacock’s Lewa Safari Camp is a beautiful, friendly spot located in the Lewa Conservancy, a community based conservation initiative. When you visit Lewa, you know you are supporting an innovative model for conservation that houses the...
Save Place
Shaba, Kenya
Joys Camp attracts a different kind of safari-goer. A Kenyan family arriving on their private plane, a Nairobi student with her Parisian boyfriend both on break from their Swiss university, European honeymooners, writers and adventure seekers all...
Save Place
“Joys Camp is a special place”, a phrase you’ll hear from many Kenyans in the know. The safaris in Shaba are like no other. The air of anticipation is the theme as my guide ‘reads the morning paper’, as the cliché goes, scanning the dust for...

Lamu, Kenya
Words like fabulous, exotic, dream-like, fantastical don’t begin to do Lamu http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamu, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) justice. It was a hard choice between staying in Lamu Town or the beach village of Shela just a 45 minute...

Manda Island, Kenya
Don’t go to Lamu with a plan. Just say ‘yes’ to what comes your way. Lamu House’s private dhow took me across the Indian Ocean bay to their beach club on Manda Island. I couldn’t believe my eyes at Manda’s coastline of summer houses, a floating...

Lamu, Kenya
Visiting during Ramadan I’m not sure if I was missing out on the liveliness of Lamu because I had nothing to compare it to. From my impression the place was full of passion, beauty and a style I’d never seen before. Lamu is a Muslim town and the...

Woodvale Grove, Nairobi, Kenya
Well-known to locals and high-end business travelers, the Sankara is Nairobi’s most posh hotel in the hip neighborhood of Westlands. Not commonly used by safari tour companies, I recommend a stopover here for a real taste of the city in a central...

Maralal, Kenya
Overlanding takes a certain type of character and a bit of daring if you’ve never done it before. What is overlanding? Exactly as it sounds, driving to safari locations and setting up camp nearly every other night. In the capable hands of Roving...

Narok District, Kenya
In the Mara North Conservancy is a safari lodge hidden in the forest. It is so sustainable (awarded the Gold level eco rating for 2012/2013) the entire thing could be torn down in a week’s time and leave barely a trace. While next to the Maasai...

The best cheetah sightings during my summer-long trip to Kenya all took place during my stay in the Mara North Conservancy (on the edge of the Maasai Mara National Reserve). In fact, Elephant Pepper Camp’s expert guide honed in on a few cheetah...

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Yes, you can view the greatest wildlife spectacle in the natural world without the company of over 160 vehicles. Over a million wildebeest and eight-hundred thousand zebra, the giant crocs never go hungry in the flow of survival of the fittest....

C14, Kenya
A delightful surprise for any visitor to Kenya is the locally produced honey. It’s a bee-nerd’s paradise, an artisanal elitist’s bragging right, a haute hipster’s dream, a foodie’s… I could go on. Short and simple, this is some of the best honey...
