Jambo everyone! 

It has been a busy July and I was on safari with many clients. I went for 2 days in Tsavo East National Park with 4 Belgium tourists from Dream of Africa Hotel and 2 English people from Scorpio Villas.

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.

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].

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 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.

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.

The Ocean Sports Hotel was closed from 18th to 28th April. The beach is covered by a lot of sea weeds and the sea is very rough with strong currents and the fishing boats are not going out anymore for fishing. Some boats were docked at Captain Andy’s place at the creek for repairs waiting for the other fishing season.

Kingi Safaris is now on Facebook if you would like to join us.

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.

The Triathlon organised by the Turtle Bay Hotel attracts many competitors and spectators from all over the world. They do the bicycle riding, swimming and running. They compete as individuals and winners are awarded at the end of the competition. A few workers from the hotel join the race. It was very interesting to watch and many people from the village also enjoy watching the competition. It also brings some much needed trade for the local businesses.

The weather here has changed and according to the seasonal change the winter season makes the sea water to be rough with big waves which rise up in an arch and breaks on the seashore. The tourists enjoy themselves using the surf boards by floating themselves on the waves to the show as sports.
