SGR KENYA – MY RAIL TRAVEL REVIEW FROM NAIROBI TO MOMBASA
Rather than taking a 50 minutes flight from Nairobi to Mombasa, I decided to take the newest train in Kenya, the SGR – MADARAKA Express from Nairobi to Mombasa. The journey took approx. 5 hours. Enjoy my travel review upon Kenyan’s newest train project.

One of the best things to do in Nairobi Kenya is to visit the local Maasai market. During my visit to Kenya, I was able to connect with a local Kenyan travel blogger to explore and negotiate the workings of this amazing market. Watch our vlog for tip and tricks to win big at this market.
Have you visited a Maasai Market before? What top advice would you give those visiting for the first time? I would say “Don’t be shy to haggle” 🙂
NAIROBI, KENYA – In this second part of my visit, I spent my day with two (2) of Kenya’s biggest travel bloggers & vloggers, Farhana Oberson & Marion Mithamo. I explore the GIRAFFE CENTER, stroke an elephant at the DAVID SHELDRICK ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE, have one MY BEST MEALS in Nairobi and visit the cutest cafe. Enjoy this truly life-changing travel vlog.

Visiting a Masai village I believe is top 5 of must-dos in the Masai Mara. Seeing how true locals live was certainly important to me on my trip in Kenya. After a great day looking for lions and watching a lion hunt and kill his prey, we took a long drive far deep into the Masai Mara to visit a village. Below is my visual diary:
Arriving at the Masai village
Once we arrived at the village, we were introduced to the village chief after which we were taught a chant and dance.
Watching the men perform a traditional jumping dance.
A home in the village in construction. Women are in charge of the construction of the houses which are made from mud, sticks, grass, cow dung and cow’s urine (Talk about making the most of one’s own resources).
The finished product: How homes look like upon final construction.
The interior of the home with my smiley self.
The bed and kitchen shelves made of sticks and animal skin.
Shopping in the Masai village….Expensive so prepare your bargaining hat ready.
What I loved: In depth, fun tour of the Masai people..just over an hour long
Interesting fact: A lot of tourists have been known to take on Masai men as lovers and taken them back to the US, UK etc leaving some of these men’s wifes as widows. Consequently, other Masai men that remained in the villages have been known to take on additional wives to compensate.
Would I go back?: No but only because I believe its one of those things you tick off the box. Nevertheless I very much enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to others.
Have you visited a Masai village before? Were you impressed? I would love to hear your experience
When you think of going on a safari in Africa, you may think that accommodations on safari would be sub-par and as such you don’t raise your expectations. You don’t necessarily expect warm water or even great service. This was not the case when I was on a 5 night safari trip in the Masai Mara. I stayed at the Governors II Moran camp in the Masai Mara and here is my visual dairy:
Glamping, a great alternative to tent pitching…The Glamp camp only consisted of 10 tens to give that exclusive feel
Sassy posing on the hammock. Note that I was awoken by a hippo who was 3 feet from my tent in the tent. Note that there are no barriers (no fences) between you and the wild. The tents are protected by armed guards all day, all night.
For those who love to shop, we had a shop on camp.
Not bad for a tent huh?
His & Her sink
Lounging in the reception area of the camp
What do you think about this GLAMPING (aka Glamorous camping)? Have you done it? Would you do it? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts
