Lake Magadi/Nguruman expedition

There are a few things about Enkuruman that make it stand out from the some of the places I have been, as a travel/hiking destination.

One, you get to see Lake Magadi and its beautiful landscapes.

Two, you encounter the bush but still have the conveniences of city life.

Three, you get to appreciate the sharp contrasts of life. And if you don’t get it, the Maasai who live here will show you.

Finally you get to swim in a river that will also give you a massage, doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to swim. All you need to have is a spirit of adventure.

The Jacob’s ladder takes you there, to the river. The ladder is scary; it’s a 99 percent vertical drop to the river bank. There is another drop, through a deadwood/log that has been placed perpendicularly to the river.

Finally getting to the water is a magical moment. Your tired body eases.

If you forget your inhibitions, the fact that our bodies are of varying sizes and appearances, the big, bold, beautiful and not-so-beautiful; if you forget that you have a one-pack belly amid three-packers and six-packers; if you forget to be scared, then you will be fine my friend.

I’m so looking forward to going back there some time. I’m also happy to have had company that made it worthwhile. We shall revisit.
