It has been One Year : Happy Anniversary

It has been One Year : Happy Anniversary

It has been One Year : Happy Anniversary. It has been one year since I decide to have a blog that would help me advocate for sustainable living and wildlife conservation.

I was on my way to my parents, and the thought could not leave me alone. I had been writing but on different stuff, giving less blogs on nature. But this was to change since the motivation was drying up.

My love for wildlife and nature on the other hand. Was growing fondly inside my soul, heart and bones. I had no way to talk myself out. My future blogging plans only lead me to conservation issues.

Being a topic avoided by many, it has been one hell of a ride. Which am glad to have had enough strength to start this amazing journey.

It has opened so many doors, but most importantly. It has open many hearts for wildlife and nature. Which is my main aim. I have been able to have an incredible online family who has helped me see that there’s indeed light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank you all very much for the love, comments, likes, views, emails, friendship, supports, smiles, criticism, among many others. They have been very helpful in this journey. May we continue with this fight until Sustainable living and Wildlife Conservation become accepted by everyone.

We have just made our first step to awesomeness. Hugs and kisses from me and my wildlife friend to all of you. We really appreciate everything you do to help.

It has been One Year: Happy Anniversary

This was my very first post….I have made several strides for sure...

Nakuru-Nairobi Highway

Nakuru-Nairobi Highway is one of the best highways in Kenya connecting Nairobi and Nakuru cities. It contains precious natural treasures that can be enjoyed as you use this road.

Nairobi is the largest and capital city of Kenya while Nakuru is the capital city of Nakuru County. The driving distance is 100.04 miles and will take you approximately two hours. Once in a while, it would be best to leave the city and enjoy nature and the great rift-valley view.

Although its a busy highway, you are still able to enjoy the fresh air. Unfortunately, its also a very dangerous highway that has taken a lot of lives mainly as a result of careless driving giving the highway a bad name as a killer road. Good thing is that the government is working tirelessly to ensure that lives are no longer lost along this road.

They are several towns along this magnificent highway including Limuru, Naivasha and Gilgil. These towns have different vegetation cover depending on their climate.

They also have beautiful landscape scenes one of them being the great rift valley. This highway is a treasure that many visitors come from all over the world to enjoy it.

The locals have built several viewpoints along the highway to enable visitors to enjoy the view safely.

Limuru town is within Kiambu county and was previously known as the “white highlands“. This town has a huge productivity potential due to its cold and conducive climate. It’s an ever greener town and a wonderful place for the flourishing of both the flora and fauna. It hosts the Gatamaiyo Forest Reserve which is a part of the Aberdare Forest.

The community also have man-made forests that contribute to the huge tree population in the area. As much as people are settling in the area, there is very minimal deforestation which is good news for tree conservation.

Naivasha is the hot spot for horticulture and found within Nakuru County. Big flower companies have settled in this useful town along the Lake Naivasha. The bad news is that these companies are over-exploiting waters from the lake and wrongly disposing their wastes to the wrong places.

Naivasha does host the famous Hell’s Gate National Park, Mount Longonot and Lake Naivasha hence a popular tourist destination. It is drier compared to Limuru and mostly comprises of the grassland savanna vegetation. Unlike Limuru, most trees were cut down to provide space for the growing human population.

Gilgil is a small town within Nakuru County hosting the Lake Elementaita which serves as a bird sanctuary. It also hosts the prehistoric site, Kariandusi, which is managed by the National Museums of Kenya.

The town is also home to Soysambu and Kigio Conservancy, these conservancies act as wildlife corridors. Despite being a small town, its crucial to wildlife survival in the area.

Lake Nakuru National Park is located within Nakuru town, gilgil offers a space for wildlife movements and breeding sites. Sometime back when the banks of the lake Nakuru busted due to the heavy rains, the Flamingoes found a rescue home at the Lake Elementaita.

It’s my hope that the treasures of this highway manage to overcome all the threats facing it for the future generations to enjoy it as well.

    Congratulations! And thanks for the awesome work you do.

    Thank you very much

    Anne Copeland March 31, 2019

    I am very happy to learn about the conservation efforts (or lack thereof) in this part of the world, and to get such a great opportunity to see this beautiful land. In some photos, if I didn’t know better, I could imagine that the countryside was someplace in Europe or other parts of the world. This is quite an education and one for which I am very thankful.
    Oh, if you don’t see my photo on my “like,” it is because I manage my own blog and two for a physically challenged friend. WordPress was putting my photos on her sites which is not OK, so I guess for the time being I shall remain the blank follower, but I am quite legitimate. Thank you kindly.

    Cheche April 1, 2019

    Thank you very much Anne.

    Happy first anniversary! Here’s to many more fruitful years of your blog.
    I enjoyed your photos. I’ve never been to any part of Africa, so it’s fascinating to me to see zebras grazing on the side of the road.
    In another photo, are those baboons sitting on the side of the road?

    Cheche April 11, 2019

    Here we cross paths frequently as most of our wildlife live outside the protected afreas. The baboons love sitting on the road sides.
