Les jardins enchanteurs de Babylonstoren

Grâce à climat type méditerranéen et une terre fertile, les vignes s’épanouissent dans la région de Stellenbosch. C’est au XVIIeme que les huguenots viennent y développer la viticulture. ils en feront une industrie vitale de la région. Aujourd’hui encore c’est le vin qui attire principalement les touristes dans cette superbe région. Je ne sais pas combien de vignobles il y a mais ils sont nombreux. La plupart des grandes Wine farms offrent aussi de superbes restaurants. Autour du vin s’est développée la culture gastronomique et la slow food avec des producteurs de proximité, des produits simples mais travaillés brillamment . Nous avons passé deux journées dans la région et visité 3 vignobles, et aujourd’hui je vous présente Babylonstoren, mon coup de cœur !

Visit Diani Beach

Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, it is located 30 kilometers south of Mombasa. It can be reached directly by plane, but from Kigali it was easy to have a flight to Mombasa , and then using the ferry and road to arrive at this small paradise .

This town was just a fishing place 40 years ago, but in the 70s when tourists wishing to come to Africa found Kenya the ideal place, as there was so much strife and problems in other African countries and it was the beginning of a touristic boom.  Hotels were built along the  coast road, which was at that time  a dusty road.  Since then Diani has continued to expend without losing its charm and simple atmosphere. You will not feel that you are in a very touristic area if you avoid the big hotels.

3 foodie spots in Nairobi

Nairobi is definitely a food spot. This city is a mix of different cultures and you can feel it in the food scene . I didn’t have the opportunity to try a lot during my 48H-stay but these 3 places really worth a visit! 

The Tin roof café

There is so much things to say about this little place in the suburb of Nairobi. The old fashioned atmosphere is lovely. Metal chairs with floral cushions, comfy couch, old pictures framed on the wall, everything is inviting.

Bright and beautiful apartment in Nairobi ( Airbnb )

Nairobi is a beautiful and vibrant city. If you have the possibility to do a citytrip , you definitely should! Even if you are going on  safari in Magical Kenya, take some time for Nairobi : you will not regret it!

There is plenty hotels, but I am a airbnb addict. I love the idea to have a place for my own, to enjoy the city as a local for few days and following my rythm.
