The setting sun casts a warm glow on the endless vista of the semiarid rugged terrain near Nguruman. The winding dirt road is bumpy, but the view is worth the ride. As the car bumps along, the passengers are treated to a constantly changing landscape. The road passes through soda lakes, rugged hills and mountains. There are also occasional glimpses of Nguruman escapement in the distance. As the sun sets, the sky turns from blue to yellow to orange. This is a magical time to be on the road.
The Nguruman escarpment in Kenya is a magnificent sight. It rises sharply out of the surrounding plains, stretching for miles in both directions. The magadi depression lies far below, its vast salt flats visible from the highlands. The Nguruman escarpment is a rugged and beautiful landscape, one that has been carved by nature over thousands of years.
The Nguruman escarpment is located in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. It stretches from Magadi to the town of Loiyangalani, a distance of about 100 kilometers. The escarpment rises more than 1,000 meters above the surrounding plains, forming a dramatic and imposing landscape.
The Nguruman escarpment is home to a variety of wildlife, including lions, elephants, and rhinos.
The Nguruman Masai are a unique and proud people who have managed to maintain their traditional culture and lifestyle in the face of increasing modernization and contact with the outside world. They are a pastoral people who herd cattle and live in Kenya’s Rift Valley. Masai society is matrilineal, with the women owning the livestock and land. The men are responsible for herding the cattle and providing security for the community. The Nguruman Masai are known for their vibrant red robes and elaborate jewellery. They are a friendly and hospitable people, who are always willing to share their food and drink with visitors.
The Masai people have a long tradition of living in homesteads made from mud and cow dung; the cow dung is used for plastering the walls and floor. The homes are circular, with a conical roof that is open at the top to allow smoke from the cooking fires to escape. The floors are dirt, and there is no furniture. Cows are kept inside the kraal (fence), which is made of acacia thorns that prevent predators from attacking the cattle.
The Masai people are known for their traditional dress and their cattle. They live in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya and Tanzania. Many of them still live a traditional nomadic life, following their herds of cattle. For centuries, the Masai have lived in harmony with their environment. They rely on their cattle for sustenance and use every part of the animal for clothing, shelter, and other needs. They also cultivate crops such as maize, sorghum, and cowpeas to supplement their diet. The image is of a Masai sitting under a tree on a late afternoon. I think this image captures both the serenity of rural life and the beauty of the African landscape.
Had been trekking to the second peak from the Suswa campsite and was on the way back down when we stopped for some water. The view was magnificent on this warm afternoon.
The top of Mount Suswa is a beautiful but, windswept place. On a warm afternoon, there’s not much to see but the vast stretches of the Kenyan savannah and the occasional herd of grazing animals. But for climbers looking for an adventure, Mt. Suswa is a rewarding destination. The ascent is difficult but not too technical, and the views from the summit are stunning.
The mountain’s most distinctive feature is its twin peaks, which can be seen from miles away. The eastern peak is slightly higher than the western peak, and both are covered in scrubby vegetation. There are no trails to the summit, so climbers have to find their own way up through the boulders and scree fields.
The best time to climb Mt. Suswa is during the dry season, when temperatures are cooler and there is less chance of rain or thunderstorms.
The sides of the Menegai Crater can be very steep at certain places so care has to be taken when traversing around the side walls

Beautiful morning inside Lewa Wildlife Conservancy with the warm sun light behind an acacia tree. As the sun slowly rises and casts its light upon the land, the beauty of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya is seen. The morning air is fresh and warm, and a soft breeze caresses the skin. The quietness of the conservancy is only broken by the sounds of animals waking up and starting their day. A lone acacia tree stands tall in the distance, its branches reaching out to the sky. In this peaceful setting, one can find tranquility and happiness.
A elephant mother and a baby seeking shade in the scorching heat inside the Lees Wildlife Conservancy. It’s hot. Scorching, in fact. And the elephants know it. They’re seeking shade in the scorching heat, but there’s not much to be found. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is located in Kenya, and it’s home to a large population of elephants. These animals are always on the move, looking for food and water in an environment that is becoming increasingly difficult to survive in.
The elephant mother is protective of her baby, and she’s always on the lookout for danger. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep her little one safe, even if that means seeking shade in the scorching heat.
