5 Easter holiday plans to spice your relationship

Nairobi - Easter is around the corner and as always I and maybe 90% other Kenyans are dreaming…fantasizing of where they would like to be at that time. Even with negative balance in the bank, I know my dreams are valid.
Coast is going to have an influx in population. I do not know why but for a lot of Kenyans when it comes to local tourism, the first ding that goes in the head is usually Mombasa. Maybe we should blame the curriculum because we seem to forget Geography and just remember Mombasa.
If it is about the beach and water, I do not know why we cannot go to Kisumu, they do have Lake Victoria you know. Or why not go to our Northern brothers and sisters there is the Lake Turkana. I for one would like to camp in Turkana. What is not to like? It is an all in one package that may actually be very cheap for you and your brood.
Picture this, it is the world’s largest desert lake in the world. You will get to play cat and mouse with the crocodiles that breed there and if you are lucky you might actually make a discovery in terms of fossils as you are dig around setting up camp. Meaning you might get paid for a discovery and go down history. I have not heard of a hotel in that region, meaning you are not paying anything; just carry camping gear, water and fuel. And armor or you can hire locals- just in case. It might also turn out to be adventurous when you need to up and leave when some clans decide to enact a raid while you are asleep and no planes meaning a road trip. That is why I think Turkana is the perfect destination for a cost free and less hustle vacation. No people to jostle you, no pollution and you get to live with nature.
How about Kisumu, I was there once for the Music Festivals back in high school but I would like to go back again. It is also not the first place people think of in terms of vacation meaning cheaper packages as compared to what you will find in the coast. Second largest freshwater lake in the world and an Impala sanctuary, nature trails and picnic sites to boot. The weeping rock, hippo point, they have flea markets, and an art market. You will not run out of things to do with your family while in Kisumu. I almost forgot, there is also the Kisumu Museum.
