“Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world”

On 26th January, I created a social media post by adding a strong quote about Africa to a captivating image, the picture was taken by photographer Niels van Gijn at the Loisaba Conservancy.

They Call It Africa, I Call It Home

                                                                                           They Call It Africa, I Call It Home


A couple of hours after posting the picture, #DiscoveringKenya’s Facebook and Instagram pages were exploding with tremendous engagement – the best thing about it all was having hundreds of people from all over the world commenting on their love for Kenya and there was nothing I wanted more than to share the lovely comments with everyone.
