IN THIS ISSUE…

Jambo!

Welcome to issue 10 of Why I Love Kenya Magazine. In this issue we’re proud to present an exclusive feature on the Laikipia region of Kenya. A pristine wilderness, wildlife guardian, dynamic destination, eco-champion and catalyst for fusion between local community and global tourism, Laikipia promises a whole new aspect to Kenya.

We’ll also head north to Samburu to find out how the local warriors communicate with the elephants, we’ll meet the original ‘cat amongst the pigeons’ and we’ll take a glimpse into the acrobatic world of the Bateleur eagle.

Going back in time, we’ll visit Nairobi’s version of The House of Lords and follow in the footsteps of a giraffe that walked the length of France clad in boots and a yellow raincoat.

Back in the present day we’ll get intimate with a buffalo, experience the twin migrations of wildebeest and whales, go on a gourmet safari in Nairobi and take a trip down the Indian Ocean coastline aboard an ocean-going dhow.

Finally, we’ll hear what Kenya’s very own Olympic swimmer, Jason Dunford, loves about the land of his birth.

And we hope, wherever you’re reading us, aboard the train, in the air, on safari, or in your armchair… that you enjoy the trip.

Karibu.

A Tall Story

However much you know giraffes, to see one in the wild for the first time feels prehistoric.’ So said the anthropologist, Jane Goodall, world-renowned for her work with chimpanzees in East Africa. Most of [...]
