Happy Jamhuri Day to all my Kenyan readers. Some may disagree, but I think we have come a long way as a nation. Bless.
‘Na tukae na Undugu, Amani na Uhuru (May we dwell in unity, peace and liberty)
Raha tupate na ustawi (plenty be found within our borders)’
I went to Uhuru Park a couple of weeks ago, soon after I arrived in Kenya. It was very impromptu. I found myself in the CBD mid-morning, and spotted the Uhuru Park dam. Boat-riding had to be done.
It is cheap to do. Ksh250 for a 30 minute boat-ride. A boat can accommodate 4 people and you get the pleasure of foot-paddling yourself. Grab a life jacket and you can be on your way!
I recommend doing it in the morning/ mid-morning because from noon onward, it gets pretty crowded. Also, the temperatures sky-rocket after noon and the heat gets unbearable. My cousin and I rode at around 10:30am and we were the only ones in the dam.
It was really relaxing. Cool breeze, pretty views, and a leg workout. My favourite things!
Love and Light
