Monkey business!

These little vervet monkeys have become an integral part of my life at Elephant Watch Camp. Don't be fooled by the innocence of this little monkey's eyes... moments after this photo was taken he ran off with my toothpaste from my bathroom!!! Cheeky Monkey!

Elephant Watch

I'm back in the Samburu bush (at Elephant Watch Camp) and feeling happy & lucky to be surrounded by elephants. There is just not enough time in the day when it comes to spending time with these gentle giants. 



They really are the most magical & awe inspiring animals.

Rendille Red

The Rendille people are a wonderful splash of colour- when adventuring in the rugged, dusty, & desiccated terrain of the Northern Frontier District, Kenya.

Elephant Watch Camp- my new home for the next month!

I've arrived in Samburu & to a new adventure away from the bright lights! 
Here life's all about bucket showers under the stars, elephants in my garden 
& Samburu lullabies. 
It's dreamy!

Lewa Marathon 2016

Once again, the Lewa marathon was an awe inspiring event. It is so well organised and runs like clockwork. I've decided that next year- I will run and not just sit on the sidelines snapping away! Eeek! :)

Bird's eye view of the wildebeest migration!

Flying high over millions of wildebeest! This is an absolutely thrilling way to absorb the sheer numbers of this phenomenal event! This shot was taken out of a helicopter up high above the Masai Mara plains in Kenya.

Flamingo madness!

There are soo many natural wonders in this world that one just has to have on a 'bucket list'... but flying over a flock of pink flamingoes has to be high up on the list!

This photo was taken in the North of Kenya on an a saline lake know as the 'Pearl of the Desert' at the Northern tip of the Suguta Valley... It is no more than 5 m deep and is a kaleidoscope of reflections and flamingoes. It's one of Kenya's hidden gems.

Lake Logipi & need I say more, this is why Kenya rocks! :)

This is why I love Kenya!

I have been so completely useless at keeping my blog up to date! 

So with a New Year at hand, I endeavour to turn over a new leaf and start a regular post again.


I've decided to start with a regular 'This is why i love Kenya' post and use it as a good excuse to explore my archives and see what we discover!


So I'll start with a photo of a dramatic stormy sky in the Masai Mara. The endless vista and the massive skies dwarf this little family pod of elephants. I love the feeling that this photo provokes, that there is indeed still 'space for giants' in our rapidly changing world ... and long may it last.
