It’s been a minute…

Or two! Almost a whole month since I last posted.

My first update… Green Element is now on Instagram! Wooohooo! Being a social media averse person, it took me a while to make this decision. I can confidently say that it was a good decision…well, at least so far. It is a nice place to showcase photos. You can check out the page here.

Second update… well, not really an update but a good suggestion. 😉  Check out Kevin Kimwelle, a Kenyan born architect who designs environmental friendly buildings. He has been nominated for building the ‘Most Beautiful Thing in South Africa’ on Design Indaba. You can read more about his project and vote for him here.

And because good things come in three’s… or so I hear… here’s the 3rd update.

Green Element turned 1!

Thank you for reading… 🙂


Nairobi Safari Walk

Last Sunday, Kadogo, an old friend of mine,  and I decided to catch up over nature. She came up with the most brilliant idea of meeting up at the Nairobi National Park (Kenya’s first national park), to do the Nairobi Safari Walk.


At the entrance, they have this little cabinet:



I opened it and burst into laughter when I saw the mirror. The last thing I expected to see was my reflection. Such a creative way of passing the message that You and I pose the biggest threat to biodiversity.

These are some of the interesting things we saw…

Creative signposts

Pygmy hippo


Spot the giraffe… 🙂




One of these worms/ caterpillars escaped on MY DRESS. I probably need to mention that many things with more than 4 legs or less than 2 legs, terrify me!


Rhino (Not sure whether it’s black or white)



Such a peaceful and refreshing walk. You can also opt to go on a game drive or visit the Animal Orphanage whilst there.
