Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sailsExplore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson



I have been writing this about me section for days! It reminds me of when someone tells me to describe myself my mind just goes blank. Let me give it a go. My name is Rachael, in my 20’s, born and bred in Nairobi. I am passionate about conservation and travel. Safari254 is a collaborative effort between me and my siblings though I do most of the writing.

Like most Kenyans, I took for granted the country in which I was born. Things changed, however, when I moved away for studies abroad. Each visit home, I sought out a different place and fell in love with the Kenya I was discovering.

The natural attractions  abound from the length and breadth of the land; from the white sandy beaches at the Coast, snow capped mountains right in the equator, wildlife in the savannas and plains, forests, deserts, the great Rift valley and volcanic lakes not forgetting the vibrant culture and people.

I think that Kenya has so much to offer but the locals are missing out. There’s much more to travelling in Kenya than just going down to the Coast. Our aim is to show you what’s on offer as a local and foreign traveller and provide practical ways of travelling. So join me as I journey through magical  Kenya
