A typical example of a traditional Swahili house at the south coast of Kenya. Building materials consisting of mangrove rafters, makuti roofing and walls made out of old coral stones. Beautiful light on a clear warm morning.

A elephant herd in the tall grass of the Masai Mara savanna moving slowly toward us. Most of the time elephant herds will be moving sideways or away from you but today we are lucky and they’re coming right toward us.
The Manguyo falls are hidden deep inside the rugged Aberdares Mountain Range and it is a full day hike back and forth. You are trekking inside very dense Tropical high altitude rainforest with extremely steep ridges and valleys making the trek quite taxing. Once you reach the falls you are greeted with a magnificent view of the water cascading down between lush green rainforest.

An example of a small lake fed by hot springs where the water is bubbling out of the ground below an escarpment. The water has been making its way deep in the underground picking up minerals and heat from the earth layers close to the magma. Due to the mineral rich waters the lakes are small oasis for a rich variety of birds.
