“Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer’s paradise, a hunter’s Valhalla, an escapist’s Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just home.”
I’m Lydia from Kenya, Africa and I am a tour operator with a diploma in Tour Operations of my special destination of Kenya.
Kenya is a dream destination in every sense – home to unforgettable wild animals and extraordinary scenic beauty.
I started my own small safari company back in 2016 and its been in operation for 5 years now. I have a total of 6.5 years of experience in the Kenya tourism sector as I was employed back then but made a decision to just start my own small safari company, registered it and continued doing what I loved, planning safaris, creating itineraries, meeting new travellers and so much more….
It will be my pleasure to meet and help you explore Kenya with BosoDabreo Tours Safaris.

Other attractions at Tsavo include the Mzima Springs. This is a fresh water oasis in the heart of Tsavo dry savannah. The Mzima spring is a fascinating geological phenomenon. Fed by water that drains from the slopes of Kilimanjaro and the Chyulu hills, it forms into a network of subterranean streams that flow above the non- porous Precambrian rock surfacing south of its source in the vast Tsavo.
The mass of black lava flow is known as the Shetani Lava flow is a relic of the most recent major volcanic eruption in the Tsavo area.
Shetani is a solidified stream of magma that erupted from the southern east end of the Chyulu Hills. According to the local oral tradition, many people and animals were buried alive by the fast flowing fiery stream of lava accounting for its Swahili name Shetani which means Devil.
