Elekevu: A New Way to Learn

In writing the stories of Kenya, we have hit on many hidden gems that rarely get under the limelight: like Ngabunat Caves, in Nandi County, whose catchy name, translating as “a secret and hidden away”, is a place of remarkable beauty and a unique history; where the legendary ‘Mogobich Battles’ between the Nandi and the Ilwasin Kishu Maasai Tribes were swedged. Or again, and perhaps more undisclosed, is a consideration of Fikirini Caves, in Kwale County, also known as the ‘Three Sisters Caves”, which are three interlinked eerie, goodly caves with plenty of natural wonders like stalactite, stalagmite, tall pillar sculptures and a myriad of bizarre cave creatures. Away from caves, also consider Sacred Mount Forore, a magnificent granitic mountain peaking at 1880 ms and marking the Kenya-Ethiopia border, which at most times of year is a plenitude of greenery in the arid North. In 2015, Elekevu (Swahili for easily understand or to be apt) set about the underrated task of collating engaging, insightful and valuable guides which would assist the learner and the traveller. In 2020, the index of places of interest in Kenya set down is 1,500 and counting. This resources in not merely useful; but is indispensable. It is the most comprehensive guide to Kenya, and we feel the task of continually revising it to provide the public with up-to-date information is well worthwhile in the interest of learning and tourism in Kenya.

Elekevu needs your help on the next engagement, over the next two years, as we set down in black and white the much-talked about but rarely committed to in detail Cultural Diversity of Kenya. A soaring global integration, social networks, growing interest in heritage tourism and finite online resources demand a new approach to cultural unification. By switching to a more evergreen strategy of documenting cultural diversity, in both Kenya and Africa, we believe our long-form posts can secure future appreciation and recognition of cultural diversity both in learning and for tourism. And faced with erosion and disappearance of the uniqueness of the customs and culture, at the last, we aim to create a unique post on every community and culture that calls Kenya home. A spot-on starting point for this onerous task was Turkana tribe of North-Western Kenya, believed to be the foremost to migrate in among the tribes of Kenya. To ensure we align our efforts to invaluable information, we repeatedly invite industry experts to look over the content and ante-up the realism by expert opinion. Our thanks go out to the dedicated writers on this platform and our supporters, without whose valuable support this learning guide would not be possible. Your kind donations ensure we keep researching and writing the stories, and put this information in the custody of the public domain. Your support, however big or small, is special.

Together We Can Grow The Wisdom Tree

To say a lot has been written about Kenya would be grossly misstating the volumes of information on virtually any conceivable topic. This is money for jam for researchers, but hard sailing for the learners and travellers. Which is why Elekevu is important. It paints a basic picture of Kenya to help people of all ages gather their wits on what is found where in Kenya and the context of their existence. Our aim, with your donation, is that in due course this information will become common knowledge for learners as well as help travellers make the best of their adventures in Kenya.
