wasini dolphin tour


Wasini Island lies in southeast Kenya 3 kilometres off the coast of the Indian Ocean, 75 kilometres south of Mombasa, and 3 kilometres opposite the harbour of the village Shimoni. Wasini Island is called by many guests as 'paradise on earth'. At first, this might sound like another inane slogan but Lamu’s little sister truly is a unique haven of peace and tranquility.

The hustle and bustle of Kenya’s coastal beaches seem a 1000 miles away. Unpleasant companions such as beach boys and pickpockets are left behind on the mainland. Wasini Island is actually an outcrop of fossilized corals, has neither fresh ground water nor a connection to the main power grid, and has only patches of sandy beach.

These circumstances make the island unattractive for mass tourism and it remained untouched by the big foreign investment spree which changed the face of so many areas on the Kenyan coast forever.

If you are looking for an authentic place – and are willing to go some time without conventional luxury – then you might have found your dream island. No cars, no roads but a lot of wild nature and traditional Swahili culture!




Lake Magadi is located in the southern Kenya. This 104 sq. km soda lake is completely surrounded by vast natural salt flats. These sweltering hot plains prevent animals from reaching the alkaline lake at its center.

For this reason, thousands of flamingos descend on the lake each year to nest on elevated mud mounds at the lake's edge safe from any potential predators. Freshwater springs at the Lake's shore attract a host of other birds.


Depart from Nairobi in the morning, heading south towards the Ngong Hills. Before you descend over the escarpment, stop for photos and views across the Great Rift Valley. Descend over the Ngong Hills continuing south into a semi-arid landscape, where you stop mid-morning at the Olorgesailie Prehistoric Site. After learning about the ancient inhabitants and geography of the area, continue on to Lake Magadi.

You approach the lake from the eastern side via the Magadi town and past the Magadi Soda factory. Enter the Lake Magadi reserve area and continue on to the hot springs where you will stop for lunch and wadding in the springs.

You may have an opportunity to meet the local Masai who use the lake daily for swimming. Mid-afternoon, return to Nairobi. The Olorgesailie Prehistoric Site is Kenya's most important and largest geological site covering 21 hectares. It was discovered in 1919 by geologist JW Gregory and excavated further in the 1940s by Mary and Louis Leakey. A team from the USA Smithsonian Institute continues to work there.

It is believed that a lake covered this area in prehistoric times and the remains of many animals including hippo, crocodiles and elephants have been found - many much larger than their modern relatives.

This presence of animals also attracted early hunters who left behind many stone tools and axes - although mysteriously no human remains have ever been found. A raised walkway has been erected for guests to view artifacts where they were found.

mount longonot hikes


Rising from the floor of the Great Rift Valley like a monolith is the extinct volcano of Mount Longonot. A unique feature is the thick forest that lies within the crater of the mountain. The crater rim also provides great scenic views across the beautiful Rift Valley all the way to Lake Naivasha.

Major wildlife attractions at Mount Longonot include buffaloes, elands, lion, leopard, bushbucks, common zebra, giraffe and Grant's gazelles. Mt Longonot is just less than 9100 feet above sea level with a tree filled interior and a lonesome steam vent to the northeast.

A climb up Mount Longonot is an ideal day trip from either Nairobi or Naivasha. Best time to visit / travel is the months of January to April and from September to December.


Safari departs from Nairobi after breakfast and the drive takes approximately an hour. You start the assent at 6000 feet. Like all good uphill hikes it will lull you in to a sense of false security with a slow gentle rise to the first peak. This gives you a chance to get your lungs and limbs freed up for the second section, which is the most awesome. At the end of each section there is a rest point where you can prepare yourself for the next part of your journey.

You will have started early to avoid the heat of the Sun but by the time you reach the end of the second section you would have generated your own heat. This hike is not an easy hike but is achievable by people of average fitness.

An indication of the fitness required is that most school of the age 14 and 15 take this climb while attending school in Nairobi. Once you have finished the second section there is another rest bite of slightly less demanding terrain, before making the final climb on the fourth section. This again is a demanding section, though not as demanding as the second section.

As you heave yourself over the rim of the crater your reward is the awesome sight of Naivasha and the Great Rift Valley and you know that it was all worthwhile. Before making this climb you will need to acclimatize at 6000 feet. A ranger accompanies you on the hike. He will act as a guide. As there are wild animals in the area he is armed.

The whole tour is only about 8-9 km long but very steep, so that the round trip of park gate - Longonot Peak - park gate takes around 5 hours hiking. The gate is around 2150 metres and the peak at 2780 metres but following the jagged rim involves substantially more than the 630 metres vertical difference.

ngare ndare forest excursion


Ngare Ndare is a lush indigenous forest at the foothills of Mt. Kenya. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200 year old trees stretch into the canopy supporting a rich variety of bird and animal life.

The forest is a vital corridor that links the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to Mount Kenya, and one which elephants have been using for centuries. In the 1980's farmland became more developed on the southern side of the forest, and farmers came into regular clashes with elephants. In an attempt to alleviate fatal human/ wildlife conflict, the forest was fenced off from southern farmland in 1992.

Yet the Ngare Ndare Forest Trust wasn't registered until 2004, and a concession management agreement was finalised with the Kenya Forest Service only as recently as 2009.


Ngare Ndare forest hiking day trip departs Nairobi at 0600hrs with a stop over at Karatina town for breakfast/snacks. The drive takes approximately 4 hrs from Nairobi to Nanyuki arriving at 1000hrs. In the company of a trained and experienced guide, you begin the hike which take 2 to 3 hrs round trip (7km's) thereafter take a walk in the sky canopy walk.

The canopy walkway is a 40 ft high aerial bridge of wire mesh and cables meandering through the tree canopy and extending 450 metres long. The walkway ends at a wooden platform 30 feet high, where you can relax and enjoy a view of the river from this elevated vantage point and often black rhinos, wild dogs, elephant and buffalo can be sighted from up there.

Enjoy a picnic lunch at the wooden platform deck and after hike to the Ngare Ndare Falls which is about 3.5kms from the canopy walk. Swimming and Diving are permitted for those who are brave enough to face the refreshing chilly waters.

Clients can have a photo session in the great sceneries of the water falls, relax in the scenery before departing for Nairobi at 1500hrs.
