The shetani flow

A black lava flow of eight kilometers, 1.6 kilometers wide and five meters deep, is the remains of volcanic eruptions. They were subject of tales among local communities who named the flow “shetani,” meaning evil in Kiswahili after it spewed from the earth when it was just 240 years old. Climbing the flow isn’t an easy task as the thick, black soil is composed of uneven chunks of solid magma.

Bubbly Sundowner At Lion Rock Site

The ‘sun-downer’ is an essential part of safari life and dates back to the time of the great safaris of the 1920s when elegant cocktails were always served while watching the spectacle of the African sunset. Timed to begin as the sun starts its descent, the Sundowner opens with a gentle evening game drive, arriving at the site just as the evening sky turns a gold-pink.
