I organised for 3 tourists from the Turtle Bay Hotel to fly from Mailindi Airport to the Masai Mara to stay at the Fig Tree Camp. They told me they had a fantastic time which is really good for me to know. 

That’s all for this month.

We went to the Board Walk and bird hides walking on the suspended bridge like Indiana Jones at Mida Creek and spotted many birds including flamingos. We passed through Gede Ruins and looked at the Museum.

Took other tourists to the Turtle Hospital in Watamu and saw a turtle with a deformed limb and another suffering from fibropapillomas, which is a tumour in the turtles eye and flippers caused by pollution in the sea which makes it difficult for the turtle to see, eat and swim and eventually dies.

I organised for 2 English people to go to Lamu Island by air to stay at the Jonathan Hotel for one night, it was great!

Had a wonderful 2 days safari to Tsavo East and staying at Voi Lodge with 3 clients from the Turtle Bay Hotel. On our way back from the hotel we passed through a school where they do the learning under the trees.

Jambo everyone

We went on safari with Ian, Margaret and their son Conor on the 1st of September and had a good time and saw lots of animals. Unfortunately I lost my camera phone the day before so could not take any photos but my friends have let me use theirs until i can get another. Thank you very much to those of you that have allowed me to use your photos for my blog.

While I was away I had another 3 clients from Turtle Bay Hotel. 2 clients went 2 days safari to Tsavo East National Park with Tomas and 1 client went 3 days safari to Tsavo East and Amboseli National Park with another one of my professional guides. They were lucky enough to spot some lions seated near the road side.

The Turtle Bay beach is becoming clean again after having big loads of seaweeds which is now being dragged back to sea for turtle food.

The profits from my safaris have finally paid for my windows in my house, the rooms divided for my children and a cement floor.

Jambo everyone

I have had a very busy August which has been great as I have met many people who have become freinds. I went with 11 clients from Turtle Bay Hotel to snorkelling and Mida Creek with the barbecue at the Mangroves Island and as you can see the lobster was wonderful. I did share it by the way

I went 2 days safari to Tsavo East National Park with 11 clients from Turtle Bay Hotel. We saw many animals today including a cheetah with 3 cubs. We also saw this cheeky monkey taking it easy........

The lions often stroll across the road in front of excited visitors.

There was a storm in Watamu 2 weeks ago which did quite a lot of damage both on the beach and in the village. The storm swept away many trees down the beach and did damage at the beach of Turtle Bay.

dsc00429 (small).jpgThe beach shower and many beach umbrellas were swept away by the storm. But everything has been repaired and now back to normal.

 

This Monday I am going on 3 days safari with some clients of Turtle bay Hotel to Tsavo East and Amboseli National Park so I will try to get some good photos to share with you.

Bye for now

Hi everyone

On 26th June I went on 2 days safari  to Tsavo East with 2 clients of Turtle Bay Hotel. We saw a group of lions seated only about 7metres from us.

On 29th June I went 3 days safari to Tsavo East and Amboseli with a family from Turtle bay Hotel. We saw the Mt Kilimanjaro very clearly and it was very lovely indeed.

We also went snorkelling in the marine park and then onto Mida Creek with some tourists of Turtle Bay Hotel and had a barbecue which included lobster, octopus soup, chicken, fish and coconut rice.

With the Watamu Marine Association helped by the school children we volunteer ourselves in making the beaches clean every week. Removing all the plastic materials from the beach thus making our environment clean. This also gives a room for the sea creatures and nesting turtles.

Hi everyone

I went on a great safari with 4 clients which was 3 days in Tsavo East and Amboseli. We had a good view of the Kilimanjaro and stayed overnight at Kibo Safari Camp.

If you would like to look at the Kibo Safari Camp you can click here.

There have been storms and strong winds in Watamu this month. Below is Turtle bay Hotel view from the beach. They blocked the strong winds by building the wind breakers.

Below you can see photos of when we visited the Watamu Bio-Ken Snake Farm. This is the Rhinocerous Viper and the Tiger Snake which is non poisonous.

You can visit the Watamu Bio-Ken Snake Farm here.

Tomorrow I am going to Mida Creek with four clients so I will have more photos for you to enjoy.

That's all for now.
