  Wild cows against the backdrop of Lang’ata housing and UAP Towers. I’m not a big fan of Whatsapp groups, but the photography ones I am in come in handy. A suggestion to visit the park for an early morning expedition was made because to see the big cats, you need to be there at […]

Synchronised feeding: the African Spoonbill. A while back, Nature Kenya had organised an overnight camping trip to Aberdares. I’m not a fan of extreme cold but I was ready to try it out. A few days after learning about this trip, I heard about another trip to Elementaita organized by for my Photography School alumni on […]

Birding at Paradise Lost

The first time I went to Paradise Lost was on a weekend youth camp. The most vivid memory I carried from there was the biting cold – that was one long night. We didn’t explore the grounds so I left unaware of the many treasures there. Little did I know that two years later I […]

As I said in my last post, I’m increasingly getting addicted to travel. If you’ve had the chance to travel a few times, you know what I mean. Going to new places is always exciting, more so when it’s out in the wild – nature is therapeutic to the mind and soul. Don’t believe it? Try […]

In my previous post, I let you in on the importance of wetlands to birds. Carrying on with the narrative, today’s post is about the Lake Bogoria and Nakuru waterfowl census as I had promised. Sometime last year, a friend informed me about the census and urged me to register. I intended to but forgot […]

On February 2nd this year I joined other conservationists in celebrating World Wetlands Day – yes, there is such a day. What’s the significance of marking it, you may ask? Wetlands are important as they support livelihoods, the economy and provide ecosystem services like enriching soil, purifying water and sheltering endangered species. If you’ve been […]

Last December I was debating between going for camping in Elementaita with former classmates from photography school, and a Nature Kenya trip to Samburu. Grevy’s zebra: It was great seeing these guys, given that they’re threatened with extinction. It had been a long while since meeting with those photographers, but I had also never been […]

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may know me as a photographer. But like most creatives, I have other skills as well. Some people call it ‘the artist’s curse’ because with so many skills, one tends to get confused about where to focus their energy. An artist may have 5 or […]

Before I started blogging, I hesitated a lot. I didn’t know what I’d be writing about. Being just another blogger was something I feared greatly. Going with the crowd and following trends has never been my cup of tea. As such, it took me very long before making the first post. But a good friend […]

I value my sleep. And if you’re anything like me, you do too. Don’t get me wrong-I’m not lazy. I respect bedtime and any interruption to this might earn you a bad slot in my book. Sleep is very important for well-being. Somebody even said: “Sleeping is nice. You forget about everything for a while”. […]
