My 13th trip to Kicheche was unplanned, spur of the moment. When Paul Goldstein said that Bush camp would be open, I didn’t hesitate to see if I could make it happen, these were unusual times – with other trips postponed to next year, and I felt the pull of Kenya more strongly, with even more uncertain times ahead for all of us, more so now a lockdown is in force again. Part 2 Our flexible booking conditions still apply as they do on many airlines. Part 3 Free photographic tuition with Kicheche co-owner Paul Goldstein, currently ongoing till 13 November (space available), will recommence mid December for the whole holiday period.
On meeting Joyce the first thing you notice is her smile: broad, genuine & warm. And as the saying goes, “a smile is a curve that sets everything straight!” Each morning, with this in mind, Joyce lines up her range of cold cappuccinos, iced coffees and thirst-quenching special lemonades which slake the thirsts of her dusty safari guests. As the “Kenyan winter” strikes, Joyce swiftly switches to choc-mocha-rula which is better known as the Ranger’s Special. It is, like her, pretty special.
