The Million Star Accommodation. On our travels, we often find ourselves in the most beautiful locations. We always joke that we’re in a million star hotel when we find ourselves under a night sky completely devoid of light pollution from cities. @siekuglampinglaikipia is one of these such places where you can find a unique kind of silence. Sieku Glamping overlooks @boranaconservancy with views of the Mathews Mountain Range in the distance to one side and Mount Kenya in the distance on the other. The mountain in the backdrop adds such character to the place. It makes us happy to see people creating innovative travel experiences for others to look at our beautiful country through and Sieku is definitely one such place. #earth #astrology #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #galaxy #farawaypeople #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #starstruck #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #stargazing #passionpassport #africageo #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #canon #canonphotography #kenya #uniladadventure #photooftheday #natgeoyourshot at Sieku Glamping

Crown on the Horizon. This mountain is not only about the slow inclining slopes leading to the majestic peaks. It’s also about all the ecosystems around it that rely on the water and the weather patterns the mountain creates. Neighboring @boranaconservancy is one of these environs that is part of the greater ecosystem around the mountain. Borana is home to a wide range of wildlife which migrate here for different purposes, water being one of the top factors on the list. The photo above captures the variety of landscapes that lie on the periphery of the mountain. Semi arid areas surrounded by oceans of green forests leading to the wheat farms in the distance just before the mountain rises to meet the sky. Many organizations are constantly collaborating to create sustainable ways of protecting this environment for future generations to bear witness to. #earth #wildlife #instatravel #nature  #redbull #redbullbike #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #heros #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #djiglobal #dronephotography #kenya #uniladadventure #conservation #fromwhereidrone #mountkenyatrust #forpeaksake at Borana Conservancy

The Sea Chef. Ever had a freshly caught seafood meal prepared for you on a dhow? No? Then you definitely need to have the experience with @kijani_lamu who have a wonderful crew of multitalented sailors who take you out on the water for an experience of a lifetime. Once on the water, they dive down to catch fish and bring them back up to the boat to cook on a rudimentary portable stove. They even managed to cater for the vegan in our team! Here we were with the dhow anchored off Manda Toto island in the puzzle of islands that makes up Lamu archipelago. Snorkeling just off this island, we were able to see a kaleidoscope of life. Fish of various colors and sizes, eels, manta rays amongst many others. The island itself is cocooned in a magnificent silence, only the waves and the winds speak of worlds far, far away. #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #airvuz #4ocean #ourplanet   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad   #passionpassport #deepblue   #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure #photography  #photooftheday at Lamu, Kenya

Portraits of Peace. Nestled in the heart of Timau is a beautiful gem called @siekuglampinglaikipia . A million star experience with languid views of Borana Conservancy to one side and the symbolic Mount Kenya on the other. The place is an intersection between camping and luxury and we were fascinated with the interior design, the service of the wonderful staff and cooks, the still silence of the nights and the overall experience this place provided for us. #earth #astrology #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #galaxy #farawaypeople #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #starstruck #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #stargazing #passionpassport #africageo #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #canon #canonphotography #kenya #uniladadventure #photooftheday #natgeoyourshot at Sieku Glamping

Just about half a decade ago, the open plains had herds of many hundreds of elephants. Nowadays their numbers have decreased drastically and we’re unfortunate not to witness the magnificence of the massive herds. This photo gives us little pockets of hope and give us a small glimpse into the past. The matriarch, the baby elephants, the grandeur of Mount Kilimanjaro. All serve as reminders of why we need to put serious efforts into conservation projects and telling stories for those that cannot do so for themselves. @amboseli_trust @kimanasanctuary @kimanasanctuary @biglifeafrica @elephantvoices @kenyawildlifeservice #earth #wildlife #instatravel #nature  #africanamazing #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #natgeoyourshot #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #ivorybelongstoelephants #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #ourplanet #passionpassport #africageo #natgeowild #canon #canonphotography #kenya #uniladadventure #conservation #photooftheday #handsoffourelephants #amboseli at Amboseli National Park

Sea Saw. The tide sits below these two as they lazily float down the Mida Creek in Watamu. Canoeing in this creek is such an incredible experience as you get to feel a wonderful simple freedom with no worries chasing you 😌 Definitely recommended! @watamutreehouse @wondersofwatamu @jumiatraveleaf 📸@the_mentalyst #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #traveltuesday #ourplanet   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #deepblue   #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure #photography  #photooftheday at Mida Creek

Starry silhouettes. Three humans sat on a outcrop in the heart of Samburu looking out at the shinning universe from one strange blue rock called earth floating in the middle of a galaxy. There’s a spectacular feeling of being when you look up at a night sky in the wilderness. No light pollution, no human influence...just the sky as it is supposed to be. Meditative moments with good people around is the kind of peace we are always looking for to share with the world. #earth #astrology #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #galaxy #farawaypeople #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #starstruck #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #stargazing #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #canon #canonphotography #kenya #uniladadventure #photooftheday #natgeoyourshot at Samburu County

Fueled by passion. The @mountkenyatrust organizes an event called the @10to4_mountainbike_challenge which is a mountain biking experience on Mount Kenya. They don’t do this just for the sake of it, they do it to raise funds and awareness for conservation projects on the mountain. This event is vividly unique. Starting at an elevation of 10,000ft, it brings together a community of mountain biking enthusiasts who believe in their cause. For three beautiful days, people from all walks of life and from different places in the world come together to camp at a race village and take part in this challenging event. Photos like these show the essence of this race. We often wonder what is going through the minds of the riders as they participate and put their bodies through physical endurance. All for nature. All for the mountain. All for us as Kenyans. #earth #wildlife #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #heros #travel  #travelgram  #explore #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #moodygrams #discoverearth   #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #canon #canonphotography #kenya #uniladadventure #conservation #photooftheday #mountkenyatrust #forpeaksake at Borana Conservancy

Floating solace. Floating down Mida creek in Watamu you find yourself connected with nature. In the middle of a mangrove forest, silently cutting through the water on a paddle board. Observing everything. The way the light touches the trees, the way an old fisherman sits in his canoe waiting patiently, the way birds chirp as if they’re providing a soundtrack to our moments there. The mangrove forests are vast and hold so much natural character. We were lucky enough to be immersed in this moment when we went to @watamutreehouse and we shall always be grateful for the experience. #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #sunset #discoverearth #traveltuesday   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #deepblue   #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure #photography  #photooftheday @jumiatraveleaf at Mida Creek

Hope and Desolation. There are three major elements in this photo. The fire, which was spreading due to the winds. The ranger looking over the burning valley across at 14,000ft. The helicopter with the Bambi bucket coming as an element of hope. This moment perfectly captured the intensity of the fires on the mountain last week. Human resilience attempting to assist nature in two different ways. Technology and manual labor merging together in harmony to help Mother Nature in her time of need. #mountkenyatrust #tropicair #forest #earth #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #earthday #discoverearth  #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #nomad #conservation #roam247 #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #film #canon #kenya #uniladadventure #helicopter #forpeaksake at Mount Kenya National Park

Tools of the trade. Slappers or fire beaters are what they call these tools they use to beat down the fires. Rudimentary metal poles with rubber strips attached to their ends which are then thrust upon the fiery embers to put them out completely and kill the oxygen flow. The slappers are heavy and tedious to work with but every day of the fires, the @mountkenyatrust rangers would wield these into war to fight for their mountain. The rangers also used jembes to dig out little trenches so the fire could not spread. It was a formidable task but they did it without complaining even once. #mountkenyatrust #tropicair #forest #earth #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #earthday #discoverearth  #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #nomad #conservation #roam247 #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #film #canon #kenya #uniladadventure #helicopter #forpeaksake at Mount Kenya National Park

Into the fray once again. These rangers watch on as their colleagues across the valley were enveloped by a fire which was spurred on by winds! They got trapped by the flames coming in from the left and if it wasn’t for the aerial support, they would have burnt to death. The pilot from @tropicairkenya used every bit of skill and experience to land in the midst of the fire, on a slope, and got 10 of them out of the hot zone! The pilot miraculously made an incredible escape with the men in tow! If the winds were stronger, the rangers would have perished. If the helicopter pilot had made one small error in judgment, they would have been done for. These are moments from movies we watch and here they are living it! These men are so passionate about conservation that they are literally putting their lives on the line. It’s incredible to witness their desire to protect, their ability to keep going, the love for this country. The next day they walked into Hells mouth once again to save what they could. And all this with happiness in their heart! #mountkenyatrust #tropicair #forest #earth #instatravel #nature  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #mountains #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet #beautifulmatters #earthday #discoverearth  #ourplanetdaily  #outsideproject #nomad #conservation #roam247 #beautifuldestinations #natgeowild #film #canon #kenya #uniladadventure #helicopter #forpeaksake at Mount Kenya National Park

On 15th April, the second mountain fire of 2019 broke out on the mountain. Many claim it was man made. Over the past few days, the @mountkenyatrust  rangers have been battling the fire with aerial support from @tropicairkenya . Using fire beaters and djembes on the ground and a water bucket drop from the air for the 6 days.  These fires have depleted the resources of the Mount Kenya Trust considerably and their teams are still on the ground.

Movement. [SWIPE LEFT AND TURN THAT 🔊☝🏾] Movement counts. The dhows of Lamu have been in motion for long before tourism came into being.Makes things happen. Moments captured don’t tell the whole story. Presence in moments is what matters. The dhow race is exhilarating. Using only wind to race . The work the dhow teams put in, the effort is months of preparation. Everyone striving for victory. It’s been tradition, life means, passion for exploration. Movement of goods, a way of trade. The historical elements that now translate into tourism. That’s what integration is all about. Tradition and modernity mixed into one melting pot of cultural diversity Experienced with @kijani_lamu #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #sunset #discoverearth #natgeoyourshot   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #deepblue   #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure at Lamu Island

SWIPE LEFT FOR MORE 👈🏾📽 The @mountkenyatrust Horse Patrol Team traverse the mountain on horseback. They go where others cannot. Through the dense forests, across the vast moorlands, up to the places where the air becomes thin. They go in search of traps, poachers and loggers. Their lives on the line in some cases. Over time, the horses and men are bound by a sentimental connection. One that transcends our understanding. Both man and animal seem to realize their higher calling, protection of Mount Kenya. #naturelover #instatravel  #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #conservation   #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #natgeoyourshot #beautifuldestinations #sunset #discoverearth #horse #ourplanetdaily  #livefolk   #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #sunsetgram   #canon5dmarkiv #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #moodygrams #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure at Mount Kenya National Park

Kinyika. The biodiversity of the location is stunning. The sea life that exists around this area ranges from dolphins, manta rays, a wide array of colorful fish and a variety of crabs too. The place has become a must visit tourist location because of the aura that surrounds it that attracts all this life. There’s something special about Kinyika, that is for sure. @kijani_lamu #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #sunset #discoverearth #traveltuesday   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #deepblue  #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure #photography  #photooftheday at Lamu Island

Fabric of existence. Slow down and remember that we live in a beautiful country. Connect more with others and find peace in the chaos we often live in. Simple things turn into something profound if you’re willing to let them.

Other Worlds. When snorkeling off Kinyika Rock, a portal into another world opens up for you. The colors, the life, the coral, the gentle rocking of waves transports you into a place of peace. The most beautiful waters we’ve come across in our travels were definitely here. It’s amazing how angles can change your perspective so much. We film from underwater to land and to the air and it opens up our minds. Always look for different perspectives in life. That’s a lesson to live by. @kijani_lamu #culture #instatravel  #nature #routesadventure  #wanderlust #travel  #travelgram  #explore  #adventure #roamtheplanet  #outdoors #beautifuldestinations #sunset #discoverearth #traveltuesday   #ourplanetdaily  #earthofficial  #nomad  #roam247   #passionpassport #deepblue   #djiglobal #culturetrip #artofvisuals  #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #magicalkenya  #uniladadventure #photography  #photooftheday at Lamu Island
