About Kenyan Backpacker
My name is Leo. Born and raised in Kenya. Away from the computer screen, I love Backpacking in Africa, Hiking & Trekking, Travelling the World, Volunteering and Meeting nice people.
In this blog, I share backpacking tips, travel planning, and destination advice to help you travel better in Kenya, Africa and around the World.
My Short Story
It’s after days and months of endless wandering that I came to this conclusion. Unlike many other hardworking men and women in this world, who rise every morning to work and thrive, my purpose in this universe was not to be a businessman magnate, an empire builder or inventor.
I was not born to be a scientist or a respected man of God – or a fisher of men. Certainly, not a chieftain or a politician.
For as long as I am in this world, mine is to continue the lineage of Cain, not to kill, but to wander. To explore, to remind me and others about the magical works of God – People, Nature, landscapes, and creatures both big and small.
I was born for the open road. And since my epiphany, I have been restless.
You can call me a pariah. But I won’t settle until I have experienced everything and interacted with everyone I was meant to.
If you too have itchy feet and always come up with an excuse to travel, you are welcome to join me in my wanderings – mostly in the African hinterland.
Let’s explore Africa together. And maybe we can learn something about ourselves.
