We stopped at most of the outcrops of boulders and scanning the landscape from the top of each one. On the rocks, hyraxes emerged to warm themselves in the morning sun and although we did not see any lions yet, but we saw topis (a chocolate brown antelope), hartebeests, klipspringers, impalas, gazelles and we had an excellent sighting of a pair of Kirk's dik-dik browsing in the flourishing plant life.

Defying his young age, 7 year old Aaryan Balaji has added another record to his name by becoming the youngest mountaineer to climb Africa's highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895 mtrs/ 19343 feet). Young Aaryan, the son of an Indian Navy officer, created adventure history by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro on February 25 this year, becoming the youngest ever in the world to have trekked all the way to Africa's highest mountain.

The rickety sign outside a shack serving grilled fish and cold beer reads: 'We welcome your pleasure.' Along the beach, children sit in a circle etching their names in the white sand. Two old men glide past on rusting bicycles. The tide is out, the horizon is dotted with women in colourful kangas wading through water, scooping up chunks of seaweed that eventually will make their way to China — a lifeline of sorts.
