FOUR THEMES AND TWO LOUNGES: THE PERFECT INGREDIENTS FOR AWARDS

Read More

Hi I’m Jordan and I have a problem. I love flying (to some extent) but I hate airports. This might seem like a small problem to you but the minute I book a flight I loose all control of my senses. I cant see straight, I sweat like an Eskimo at the beach, my hands start shaking, I speak in tongues, the list is endless. Just know it ain’t pretty at all. So what turns me into a bewitched villager you ask? Well, the thought of having to sit in an airport waiting for a flight. Why, oh why, do I have to sit there for two hours to wait for a two hour flight. That means it took me four hours….FOUR HOURS…to get to my two hour destination. Two of which I’m just sitting in uncomfortable chairs or aimlessly searching for a socket to charge my phone/laptop or spending money on over priced food (a packet of Krackles potato crisps for 150/-, seriously).

So for those of us who are afflicted with the ‘bewitched villager syndrome’ the solution is very simple, Airport Lounges. Beautiful and relaxed ambiance, Comfortable seating and loungers for sleeping, numerous reading options, enough ports to charge all the devices you’ve ever owned your whole life, good food. It’s like a two hour holiday. Here in Kenya, at JKIA (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport) there are a couple of lounges but non like the Kenya Airways SIMBA and PRIDE lounges. They offer you all the above amenities with interiors so breathtaking they’ve won a couple of awards.

Have a look for yourself.

Dear Anne,

I hope this finds you well. First and foremost I would like to thank you for being you. Yes, I know I only had the pleasure of knowing you for four days but trust me I’ve known people longer who haven’t had such an impact on me.

Okay, let me backtrack a bit to the events that led to me writing you this letter.

Its 2016, I’m in Ethiopia and a couple of us are sitting at the dining table planning out what to do during the Easter holidays. Four whole days…four whole days of freedom!

WHAT COULD EASILY BE ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE RESORTS IN THE WORLD IS IN KENYA: THE OL JOGI EXPERIENCE

Read More

What does the wealthiest art collecting French family, involved in one of the biggest tax fraud trials in French history, have to do with Kenya?

Simple…OL JOGI RANCH, the setting for the award winning 1985 film ‘Out Of Africa’.

The family in question, the Wildensteins, have their patriarch, Guy, arraigned on multiple charges of tax fraud and money laundering. If you’re looking to find out more about the family and the case, then this isn’t the post for you because the only family member of interest to us today is Alec Wildensteins Jnr, nephew to Guy.

Why Alec? Well, because he runs the  OL JOGI RANCH located just north of Nanyuki in  Laikipia North District around 45 minutes’ flight from Nairobi.
