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.

Jambo

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.

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.

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.
