On arrival my eyes quickly noticed the waterfall behind the parking area and before going to the reception to check in I took a few pics at the waterfall.
After that I walked into the reception only to be recieved with a glass of sweet passion fresh juice I checked in, was given a key then driven to the room in the below gorgeous electric powered cart/car.
The room was heavenly, the fact that it had a fireplace made it more homely and warm. We went for lunch then as a team walked to the mighty Thompson falls. The scenery was epic…just out of this world.
On entering the Thompson falls area, I was met by awesome cultural dressed Gikuyu ladies who sang and danced with me their cultural songs ( click here to see the video). As if that wasn’t enough, they went ahead and dressed me in their cultural clothes which looked so outstanding and lovely then again we danced our hearts out in the Gikuyu cultural songs.Basically this was the best part of my Nyahururu tour.
It was such a struggle going down the steep slope but we managed…The photos says it all The following day, Thursday, we woke to playing different games one of them being my favorite #football. we were playing with our hand held behind..And yes as you can see below I was the goal keeper of the day. Don’t even ask which team won, because I bet you know the answer already.
In between the games we had the tea break to give us more energy to play.
As if we had not had enough games for the day, immediately after lunch we left to see one of the big five animals of the forest, that is Mr. Elephant…..our timing was bad, we didn’t get to see any but could smell their skin from afar. I think not seeing any was a relief to me LOL because I was too freaked out, especially when the one of the game rangers told us that in case of anything we should run. My body, my heart, my blood, my arteries, may skin, my cells, I mean each and every bit of my body was freaking shaking with each and every single step we took into the forest. I sighed hallelujah immediately I stepped out of that forest into the safe land.
Our visit was climaxed with a African culture attire gala dinner. It was mad fun. I took to pieces of not sewn Vitenges, turned the biggest piece into a dress top and the small one tied well on my head, with, African sandals, orange red leggings and beaded African necklace my cultural attire was complete. We danced our hearts out the whole night enjoying some drinks here and there. The DJ was so awesome, he knew the right songs to make us scream and all jumpy throughout the night.
I loved my stay at panari hotel. right from the reception, customer care service, their food, breakfast, rooms, and their so neat compound was super awesome, It is definitely a home far away from home and a superb gate-away place….Goofing around was what I did best as seen below.
