Mini Cinnamon Rolls

What’s better than bite sized snacks? Probably a lot of things..but not today. My favorite thing about bite sized snacks is experiencing all the flavors at once in one mouthful, and knowing that every additional bite will taste and feel exactly the same…you can tell I don’t like surprises ey 😉 The beauty of this snack is…

Paradise Lost, Kiambu

Paradise Lost is situated in Kiambu, approximately 14 km from Nairobi. It was a pretty perfect location  for a Mashujaa Day outing (In case you don’t know, that’s our ‘Heroes’ Day here in Kenya). There are several activities available to visitors. Here’s what we got up to:- Originally, our plan was to go cycling, but that’s now a…

Rolf’s Place, Nairobi

Rolf’s place is based in Ongata Rongai, Nairobi. It is hot and dusty, don’t expect extreme luxury 😉 There aren’t too many activity options there, however, it is a great place to take visitors for a basic meal and a photo opp. While we ate, we saw baboons at the river below, so I imagine there…

Savage Wilderness, Sagana

Savage wilderness has been around for over 25 years. I feel a bit ignorant for only discovering it this year, oh well, better late than never. My colleagues and I were recently there for our annual team building weekend (3D/2N for a group of 39 people). One of my favorite things about Savage wilderness is…

Distant Relatives, Kilifi, Kenya

Lola ya Bonobo Sanctuary, Democratic Republic of Congo

One of the most memorable experiences while there, was visiting the Bonobo monkey sanctuary.  If I remember correctly, the trip from Kinshasa took over or about an hour (don’t quote me, I don’t remember). For those who don’t know…
