It has been pretty quiet here in Watamu as the rains have started and the tourists have stopped!

The Turtle bay Hotel is closed for 1 month due to renovations as they want to be a better place for the tourists.

They fenced the hotel temporarily to prevent strong wind from damages.

The Turtle bay beaches is still free from sea weeds creating a good place for a walk to the wishing rock.

and its waters are calm for a bath near the Turtle rock.

Took some other friends to Mida creek for a half day Trip and we passed through the turtle Clinic [turtle watch].

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.

That's all for now.

Jambo everyone

We are very happy as we have been very busy this month with lots of clients wishing to do very different things and would like to thank you all for supporting us and the local community.

We went to Gede Forest (or Arabuko Sokoke Forest) with two clients of Turtle Bay Hotel, Caroline and her friend. We passed by the swamp to see the elephants but were already gone, so went up the tree house to see if we can spot them. We managed to spot the Golden Elephant Shrew.

We climbed the boardwalk at Mida Creek.

And went with a canoe inside the mangrove forest to watch some birds and there were many ibises and flamingoes.

We went on a 2 nights and 3 days safari to Tsavo East and West with Solo Group of Turtle Bay Hotel. Sarah, Val, David, Alex and others. The landscaping in Tsavo West, the Mzima Spring and the rhino sanctuary makes the Park to be more attracting. We saw the Big Five animals except rhino.

We went with Roger and Margaret on a 2 days safari to Tsavo East and saw the big five animals. We visited the Masai village which is very interesting.

We also went with Roger and Margaret to dolphin watching, snorkeling and Mida Creek with barbecue. Later we went to Hells Kitchen for sundown which is spectacular and very special.

That's all for now.

January and February are the hottest months we have here in Kenya. Many tourists enjoy the sunbathing and come out with a brown colour. The tagging and releasing of the sea turtles on the Turtle Bay Beach attracts many tourists for turtle watching. Also they produce spectacular scenery when swimming to the larger waters.

The starting of a Watamu community marine park (which is cheaper compared with the Kenya wildlife marine park) attracts many tourists to look at its huge shells and corals which produce a glittering colour for good snorkeling.

I took Jason and his family on a Mombasa tour and we stopped off at Haller Park to feed the giraffes which everyone enjoyed very much.
