Save Place
Lamu, Kenya

From Lamu, an archipelago off Kenya's coast, my husband Mike and I arranged for day-long trip in a dhow. This traditional vessel has a simple wooden hull and beautiful arcing white sail. They've been used along the Swahili Coast for hundreds of...

After spending a few days camping in a nearby park and exploring the animal reserve the Maasai Mara Tribesman took us on a hike where we gathered fruit and herbs that they later used to cook us a home cooked meal. Half way through the hike we...
Save Place
My family and I are big cat lovers. I mean BIG CAT lovers, such as lions, leopards, and especially cheetahs. Our son's 13th birthday was fast approaching and traditionally, kids in our New York neighborhood would celebrate their bar/ bat mitzvahs...

Maasai Mara National Reserve, Sekenani Gate, Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
It's easy enough to get on a flight to Nairobi, then go on safari in the Masai Mara and see an incredible amount of animals, and hopefully some amazing sights such as this cheetah. But it doesn't have to be nearly as expensive as some may think....
Save Place
Laikipia District, Kenya
An expansive cattle ranch, the upscale Borana has eight family-friendly cottages. Look for views of snowcapped Mount Kenya and elephants bathing in a nearby lake. Guests can accompany the manager on his daily rounds to see lions outside the cattle...

Lamu Museum, Kenyatta Rd, Lamu, Kenya
I can't help but highlight JamboHouse in Lamu. The rooms were simple, but nice, comfortable and breezy with mosquito nets and a fan. All rooms have personal bathrooms (although in some cases they might not be attached to the room). There is a...

Duma Rd, Nairobi, Kenya
Our fist night in Nairobi at The Giraffe Manor, a giraffe stuck her long neck into the dining room. Her 18 inch tongue curled around our fingers as she plucked giraffe food pellets from our hands and watched us with dark soulful eyes. The next...
Save Place
Masai Village, Kenya
Working with the Born Free organization I had the opportunity to help a local village by building a lion proof boma to protect their animals from lions. This experience was life changing, not only did I create friendships with the local people,...
Save Place
East Africa
East Africa is a glorious destination where a tapestry of cultures merge to overwhelm the senses. In this particular area, the smiles of the Maasai greeted me and a young Samburu boy took me on a walking safari. Luckily, the sun was at its peak...
Save Place
Baruti East, Nakuru, Kenya
The Lake Nakuru Lodge in Nakuru National Park, Kenya is a landmark hotel. It is one of the only hotels located within the national park gates and boasts over 100 rooms. I spend a lot of time here because I love that it is locally owned and...
Save Place
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...

Kenya
The first night was filled with sound. The second, eerily quiet. In daylight, my camera focused on a black, white, and red carcass. The sound I had mistaken for hyenas had been zebras alerting the herd of danger. Having felled a zebra the first...
Save Place
At Loisaba, you should spend at least one night sleeping in a four-poster bed, open to the Africa sky where you can see all the constellations. Take advantage of the variety of activities, such as mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, or...
