Hello Lovelies 🙂
For those of you who follow us on Instagram you know I (Liz) took a 3 day work related trip to Addis Ababa-Ethiopia. This was my second visit to the Horn of Africa and I was aflame to say the least. I remember how my first visit was all work related denying me an opportunity to wander around or even shop. This time though it had to be different and the explorer in me was on full alert. I had made a list of everything I wanted to do,but funny enough never got to check them all out giving me all the reason to plan a third visit soon 🙂
Mombasa old town is believed to be the first place at the Kenyan Coast to be settled by the Swahili ethnic group. At the mention of Old town, the first thing that crosses ones mind is the view of an old quiet town located at the edge of the sea that boasts of rich culture, a diverse community, deep history and ancient architecture- Fort Jesus.
Haller Park, a gorgeous sanctuary in Bamburi, previously known as Bamburi Quarry Nature Trail. It is now named after the founder, Dr. René Haller, who has done the unthinkable and managed to transform barren limestone quarries into what is now a thriving ecosystem of forest, grasslands and ponds. Haller Park is situated on the North Coast of Mombasa along the Mombasa Malindi road, next to the Bamburi Cement factory.
We all wish we could escape to our favorite hole or walk away from work.Well, not really but equally as enticing (for us at this moment), is camping.
When we think about going camping in Kenya,especially if you are in Nairobi,the first thing that comes to mind is the lovely stretch along Lake Naivasha which includes several campsites such as Fishermans, Cray Fish and Camp Carnelley’s. All great places but sometimes you just want to get off the beaten track without having to venture too much further. Lake Oloiden is where it’s at.
