Watamu

by admin

Living up to its name, Watamu (Watamu-“home of the sweet people” in Swahili) is a tiny town off the coast of Kenya that is full of sweetness. The rest of the world could take a lesson from this extremely pleasant place. The people are generally, easy-going, kind, helpful, and generous both to each other and to strangers. It is a multi-cultural mix of the world at large. There are residents from around Africa, Europe, North and South America, Australia, The Middle East, Asia, and even a few from the Polar Regions.

Living up to its name, Watamu (Watamu-“home of the sweet people” in Swahili) is a tiny town off the coast of Kenya that is full of sweetness.

What initially makes Watamu an interesting place for anyone with a sense of curiosity is the biodiversity of plant and animal life. This may be because it is a micro-climate of its own kind. It is not as hot as Malindi or Mombasa both of which are close by and when it hits 25 Degrees Celsius the residents complain it is cold. Even when it is raining, the cold doesn’t smack you in the face as it does in other regions of the country.

This allows for flora and fauna of all sorts to flourish in the town and the marine life is also quite the treat for oceanographers and other adventurers. From whales to eels and dolphins the ocean here is quite a treat. Several currents mix so the water temperature is warm, and the winds are just the right amount to cool one off without having to grab a coconut tree for grounding.

The sand is white and fine only spoilt in a few areas by human interference i.e. garbage. Interestingly, the garbage collected along the shores is mostly not even from Watamu. There have been many instances of garbage from other continents washing up ashore. The cross current in the deep ocean parts tends to pick up this intercontinental trash and sometimes it ends up on the Watamu shore. Luckily for the town, there are numerous environmentalist groups/organizations such as – The Watamu Marine Association that do their best to clean the beach and educate the locals/residents on the importance of cleaning up the beach and recycling.

The mix of people and cultures in this small town means that the food available is a smorgasbord of deliciousness. You will find eateries that serve Italian, English, Indian, Arab, Indigenous, Upcountry, Mexican and African food. The same goes for the drinks too. They come from all over the world, you just have to know which little kibanda to go to and you will find something exotic to try out.

Accommodation is varied both in style and cost. The choices include renting/leasing an entire castle to being simple and making do with AirBnB types of all kinds like tents and little huts. Whatever your budget and style preference you will find it here and it will be totally worth it. On the whole, it is pretty laid back and chilled out and very easy to never want to leave.


The night scene isn’t as active as it once was due to COVID restrictions although it might pick up as the disease starts to wane and no longer be a pandemic. This doesn’t mean that the restaurants and other eating places are shut; it is mostly the nightclubs and such that had to shut down. However as stated, the situation is gradually changing since most of the COVID restrictions in Kenya and abroad have been lifted.

Watamu is fantastic for both the vacationer and the academic. There is so much to see, experience, and study in such a small town. Of course, just like anywhere else except heaven, it has its undesirable qualities such as a very enthusiastic mosquito population and a recent influx of Indian crows. They are seasonal though, and Kilifi County does try its best to control things as best as it can. The good completely outweighs the few bad things so again completely worth it to come and check out Watamu

Lastly, it is said that Watamu offers incredibly beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This is not an exaggeration. It may in fact be an understatement, the pinks and peaches of the sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking. They make for a great way to start and end the day. It is a wonderful place to visit and to live in. Try it for a few days and see if you don’t tear up as you leave the sweetness of it all. There’s a Swahili saying that goes,”Watamu ni kutamu ukiingia hautoki.” Transliterated this means, “Watamu is a sweet place, once there you never leave.”

Vuria hill of Taita Taveta rises above the plains of Tsavo West National Park, it's the highest peak of the Taita hills.

Vuria Hill

by admin

Discovering Vuria Hill: A Guide to Taita Taveta’s Highest Peak

Vuria Hill is an inselberg in Mwanda Mgange ward, Wundanyi constituency in Taita Taveta county, Kenya. With an elevation of 2,228 meters above sea level, it rises above the semi-arid plains of Tsavo West National Park, making it the highest peak of the Taita hills. The Taita Hills are tropical montane cloud forests forming the northernmost outlier of the Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania and southeast Kenya.

The Formation and Biodiversity of Vuria Hill  

The Taita hills, including Vuria Hill, were formed from repeated uplifts and faults millions of years ago, causing the rising of the central plateau, also known as Kenya/Tanzania highlands. Having been in isolation for millions of years, the plants and animals in Taita hills have gradually evolved and produced a unique and complex biodiversity.

Attractions at Vuria Hill

The caves

One of the main attractions at Vuria Hill is the caves. Nestled in the belly of the majestic Vuria hill is a series of gapping caves that were once used by Mwangeka Wa Malowa, a Senior Chief and a heroic Taita warrior who led the community’s resistance against British rule. Some caves served as armories, whereas others served as living quarters.
Today the caves are an important cultural and spiritual site for the Taita community. A place where the remains of their elders are preserved and the living can visit to offer sacrifices, ward off bad omens and invite blessings to the community.

Floral and fauna

Forests in Vuria hills are conserved and managed by Kenya Forest Service and are home to a variety of endemic and threatened flora and fauna including; birds, snakes, frogs, butterflies, and at least nine plant species.

Activities

Hiking & sightseeing

The roads are good, and the drive there is an attraction by itself with sharp corners that wind up the hill offering beautiful views of the lowlands.
The trail to the summit is well-maintained and marked, making it easy to follow. However, be prepared for a bit of a workout as the trail can be steep and rocky in some places, so hikers should be in good physical condition. The hike takes around 3-4 hours round trip, but it’s worth it for the breathtaking panoramic views of the Taita Hills, Tsavo West National Park, and the surrounding landscapes that the hike offers.
As you reach the summit, you’ll find a peaceful and serene spot to rest, take in the views, and enjoy a picnic before descending. The trail is suitable for hikers of all levels, but hikers should be prepared for the change in temperature and altitude as the climb gets steeper.

Birding

Owing to its rich biodiversity Taita hills forests are home to various species of birds including, Taita Apalis, Taita White-eye, and Taita Thrush, which are endemic to Taita hills.
Other notable birds include Stripe-cheeked Greenbul, Taita Falcon, Grasshopper Buzzard, Madagascar Bee-eater, Lemon Dove, Hartlaub’s Turaco, Silvery-cheeked Hornbill, Orange Ground Thrush, Blue-mantled Crested Flycatcher, Evergreen Forest Warbler, Yellow-throated Woodland Warbler, Yellowbill, Golden-tailed Woodpecker, Brown-breasted Barbet, and Black-cheeked Waxbill.

Items to bring

Here are some items that you should consider bringing:
1. Hiking boots or sturdy shoes: Good footwear is essential for a safe and comfortable hike. Hiking boots or sturdy shoes provide support for your feet and ankles and help to prevent slips and falls.
2. Bring enough water to last for the duration of your hike.
3. Snacks and a packed lunch
5. Sun protection
7. Rain gear or a poncho
8. First aid kit
9. Map and compass
10. Warm clothing
11. Camera

Always check the weather forecast before your hike and plan accordingly. Remember to leave a detailed itinerary with a friend or family member, and let someone know where you are going.

    A Day At Bio Ken Snake farm

    by admin

    Ever since watching NTV’S wild talk session, with Bio-ken snake farm on reptile conservation and Saving Snakes in Kenya, I immediately developed an interest in snakes. Since then I’ve always wanted to visit the farm. So, 13 years later I made a move and contacted them just to find out if they were still open. After exchanging a few messages on Instagram I finally set a date and started planning. The whole experience was exciting and educational and by the end of the day, I was shocked at how ignorant I have been about snakes.

    Snakes have been given a bad reputation in most African cultures and are still perceived as cold, creepy, scary, evil, and sometimes even associated with witchcraft. These beliefs and myths have made most people act harshly during encounters with snakes, thus creating an unsafe situation for themselves and the snakes.

    A Day At Bio Ken Snake farm

    It’s human nature to often fear what we do not understand and to most people snakes are still a riddle that will never get solved. Over time, snakes have mastered the art of camouflage, nocturnality, subterranean lifestyle, and mimicry so even as they go about their business they are not quick to spot, thus creating a void that has filled our minds with fear from the many unpleasant stories we hear about snakes.

    I decided that I’m going to learn with the experts and let’s just say my quest for enlightenment finally landed me at The Bio Ken Snake Farm. The visit has completely changed my perception of snakes and I hope it will change yours too by the time you get to the end of this article.

    I know this is not a subject many would be looking forward to discussing but we need to agree and understand that snakes are a valuable part of the food web and that having snakes is a sign of a healthy ecosystem.

    The Farm:-

    snake handlers
    A Day At Bio Ken Snake farm

    Bio Ken Snake Farm is a hepatology research center that was founded in 1980 by James Ashe and his wife, and is situated in Watamu on the South Coast of Kenya. The farm is home to over 100 species of snakes (making it the largest snake research center in east Africa) lizards, tortoise, and other reptiles. There is a well-maintained display of vivariums arranged neatly across each other to ensure the safety of the visitors and the animals. The farm is also a breeding center and learning center where visitors can fully indulge in the world of snakes and nature. There are several knowledgeable guides or ‘Fundi Wa Nyoka’ who patiently teach visitors about the various species and the need to protect the snakes and their habitat.

    Antivenom:-

    The farm holds a venom extraction session at 11:00 AM every day: a process that is harmless to the snake and involves inserting the snake’s fangs into a cup then gently massaging the glands on top of the snake’s head. The snakes release a small amount of the venom that is then desiccated and sent to South Africa for the production of anti-venom. The farm then purchases the anti-venom and donates it to people who cannot afford it through the James Ashe Antivenom Trust (JAAT)

    Snake Conservation:-

    Just like many other wild animals, the snake population has greatly declined due to the unfortunate persecution, habitat destruction, disease, over-harvesting, and even climate change, Some snake species have become impossible to spot in the wild and might soon be gone if things don’t change. In a bid to help with the conservation of the snakes the farm regularly holds tours and seminars all around the country which help to create more awareness about snakes. They also offer free snake rescue service to homeowners or businesses around the region, the rescued snakes are then released to the wild or brought back to the farm for research and education purposes. The staff at the farm passionately explained all about the snakes and just like me a visit there will leave you wanting to do something to save the declining population.

    So what could we do to help with the conservation and protection of the snakes?

    • Motivate other people to read up on snake conservation issues, respect wildlife, and be serious about the protection of wildlife species and their habitat.
    • Support organizations helping in the conservation of snakes.
    • Visit the farm or other snake conservation centers to learn more about the snake
    • Call, the snake rescue team, or KWS in case you see a snake.
    • Restore & Protect Snake Habitat
    • Avoid Purchasing products made from snakes.

    What I learned:-

    • Not all snakes are venomous. There is only a small percentage of venomous snakes that can kill you, but since most of us cannot tell which snakes are venomous, you should always visit a hospital and call a specialist to remove the snake should you see one.
    • Snakes are not cold and slimy!!
    Snakeskin is dry, and depending on the surrounding temperature, can be quite warm and soft. Snakeskin is very smooth and soft, similar to supple leather
    • Snakes are not faster than humans
    The fastest snake in the world is the black mamba and can travel at around 12km/hr. Humans can easily run faster than this. Snakes soon tire, as moving rapidly uses their stored energy. The likelihood that a snake will give a persistent chase is small.
    • Some snakes give birth, some species of snakes produce their young in eggs, while others give birth to live young.
    • Don’t attempt to kill a snake!
    Attempting to kill a snake puts you in more danger, just like any other animal the snake will attack when it feels threatened. When you encounter one, the best thing to do is to take three steps back and walk away, and call a specialist or KWS to get it removed.
    • Some snakes prey on other snakes only.
    Some are nonvenomous and will hunt and kill other snakes through constriction and then swallow them whole.

    Here a few tips to preventing snake bites:-

    • Wear boots and long pants when farming or hiking in areas with tall vegetation.
    • Watch where you’re placing your feet, be extra aware on rocky, sunny areas, pockets of leaves, and logs.
    • Do not touch or disturb a snake, even if it appears dead.
    • Watch out when sitting down on a rock or a tree stump.
    • Always look for concealed snakes before picking up rocks, sticks, or firewood.
    • Never hike alone in remote areas.
    • Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
    • Teach children to respect snakes and to leave them alone.

    If Bitten:-

    • Do Not wait for symptoms to appear to visit a hospital.
    • Do Not compress the bitten limb with a cord or tight bandage.
    • Do Not attempt to extract or neutralize the venom.
    • Do Not wash the area of the bite or try to suck out the venom as it is extremely important to retain traces of venom for use with venom identification kits.
    • Do Not incise or cut the bite. Stay calm and seek medical help immediately
