'Kulafumbi' is our family home in Kenya, East Africa. 'Kulafumbi' is a play on the Kiswahili words "kula vumbi", which mean "eat dust", because it was so hot and dusty building our house in this remote, wild, wonderful place. Kulafumbi borders the Tsavo National Park - with no fences between us and the Park, the wildlife comes and goes of its own free will and treats our land as its own, which is exactly how we like it. In turn, we provide a protected area for the wild animals to do as they please. This protected area also creates an important buffer for the river, which forms the boundary between us and the park.

The fabulous new Facebook game that supports conservation efforts in Africa!
Build your own wildlife orphanage in Africa's wilderness - adopt sick or lonely orphaned baby elephants, rhino, meerkats, buffalo and many other animals - nurse them back to health and give them a second chance in life!
This is not a zoo game! Once your animals are big and strong enough to look after themselves, release them back into the wild where they belong! Fly on animal rescue missions in your helicopter, chase evil poachers, remove nasty animal traps, enjoy incredible graphics, 3D dynamic, interactive animals and the real sounds of the African savannah. This game looks like Africa, feels like Africa, in fact it virtually IS Africa! There's not another game quite like this one, a trans-continental creation developed between the African wilderness and a digital games studio in UK.
KENYANS FOR WILDLIFE is a dynamic, interesting Facebook group which discusses wildlife issues in Kenya and is having an incredible effect on conservation in this country. You don't have to be Kenyan - this group is open to everyone. If you care about conservation in Africa, please do join.
"We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems..."
The river started rising in the morning of the 29th March, until it reached the highest level we had seen this year, over the top of the wide white sandbank at Hippo Bend, into the Tana River Poplars to the left of the house...
