TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – October to November

Posted on November 5th, 2018

The Kenya safari circuit sold-out in October, now there is a happy piece of news, and long may it last. Kenya’s safari product has long been considered expensive when compared to its other competitors on the continent. The quality and diversity of a Kenyan safari experience, however is far superior to anything else anywhere in Africa. You will agree? But, there comes a time when cost over experience has to stand up to scrutiny. The recent imposition of value added tax on fuel, a ‘Robin Hood’ tax on bank transactions, a levy to support low-cost housing and the general tightening of our tax regime here in Kenya is going to have a massively negative impact on our value proposition.

TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August to September

Posted on August 6th, 2018

The world sizzles, while here on the equator we freeze – in relative terms of course. Our highland Kenyan winter, as its known here, has seen lows of 8C and highs of only 21C under murky grey skies. Which is the norm at this time of the year. Followed recently by days of sunshine up to a balmy 26C and today as I write this thunder, lightning and a downpour of epic proportions. Has the world’s weather finally succumbed to the oft broadcast theory of global warming or as some say it’s all cyclical. Hold onto your hats and don’t be too hasty in your judgement. That said, I enjoyed a holiday in Scotland – and hot it was, followed by an adventure to the Greek island of Corfu, which was even hotter.
