SHORT AND SWEET: NACHU CAVES KIKUYU.
The hike started with breakfast at Crave Kitchen, a restaurant that takes your breath away with its authentic décor and its amazing food. It’s a haven for creatives, full of art, books, nature and good food, let alone at affordable prices, you just have to go experience this place for yourself.
We then headed on to our hike, after last week’s hike, I had mentally prepared for the exhaustion. This was a moderate hike, and as promised it was delivered.
Walking up the mountain after some stretching and fun team building activities, was breath taking, both literally and mentally. The wind, the grass, the rocks the views!
We finally got to the first cave, after about an hour of climbing, the cave had a little fireplace probably for heat at night, but no sign of human life. We spend an hour there, dancing, bonding, interacting with other nature lovers as we took in the view, I mean, what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
We headed off to the second cave, which was quite steep, but still worth the view. The descended involved, sliding through the rocks with our bums, as if playing the famous duff mpararo, only more careful though since we are now adults.
Lunch on a rock, I mean, if you thought this day could not get any better, it did. We shared lunch and ideas on a rock, as some of our hippie hikers went to look for baboons in the nearby hills, it was fun watching them constantly run for about an hour, searching.
Home sweet home, just as the afternoon sun cooled down and we began our walk back to our start point, a small town in the outskirts of Kikuyu, finally our hike was over, just like the famous Sauti Sol song, Short and Sweet.
Have a lovely week! ☺
