Travels with my Lilo

By Craig Rogers.

Travelling with surfboards is not easy.  Travelling with SUPs is even harder. 

If the airline graciously lets you on the plane with your quiver, there’s usually a wallet-melting surcharge to pay (and even then they make you sign a disclaimer against damage).

Fitness Courses on the Swahili Coast

Wildfitness Kickstart

Wildfitness offer holidays with a difference, where cocktails, pizzas, and lazing away the hours are not part of the programme.

Going on holiday to get fit and not indulge probably seems insane to many, especially to those looking to escape a busy city lifestyle, where many hours are spent in the office or in traffic.

The Wildfitness philosophy, training sessions and diet are an ideal antidote to stress, lethargy, and a mind and body that needs a kickstart and how to go about leading a more healthy lifestyle.

Sabaki River Mouth Bird Walk

on Monday, 04 October 2010. Posted in North Coast, Environment, Travel, Wildlife, Community

I have always wanted to walk theSabaki River Mouth. I have also always believed in the old adage that if you want to get something done the best way to achieve it is to do it yourself.

The Sabaki River Mouth is where the Athi, Tsavo and Galana rivers that rise and converge in upcountry Kenya ultimately disgorge their heavily silted waters into the coral reef fringed seawater of the Indian Ocean five kilometres north of Malindi. This convergence in turn provides one of the richest feeding grounds for birds in Africa and the Sabaki River Mouth has rightly taken its place as one of the Important Bird Areas (IBA’s) in Kenya.

In October, particularly,  the recently arrived Palaearctic migrants waders congregate in their tens of thousands, some before dispersing southwards down the coast, but many are content to winter in this coastal food larder, mingling with the resident herons, egrets, gulls, terns and the numerous other species that frequent the lagoons, reed-beds, and sand-dunes adjacent to the river mouth.
