As travel writers/photographers, who also have full time jobs and not to mention a married life, things do get busy! Early last month we decided to take a trip to Malindi and enjoy some much needed vitamin sea. You will have to believe us when we say 3 days is definitely not enough time to fully explore Malindi, but that makes it even better as we have to revisit the place someday soon.
Tourism is constantly evolving but there is now an important change in demand and tourist expectation. Sports Tourism is now a significant part of the tourism industry in Kenya, with athletes visiting from countries in Europe, Asia, the US and other parts of the world to train or conduct philanthropic activities. In 2009, Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world in the 100m and 200m, visited Kenya for charity work as did world tennis star Serena Williams in 2010.

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.
