IASTE Masai Mara Trip to Witness the Wildebeest Migration

Another set of lucky people took a tour to the Masai Mara National Game Park. They had the privilege to witness the annual wildebeest migration, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. They were treated to a weekend of witnessing the beauty of the migration and the scenic beauty of Masai Mara. They departed from Kimathi on Friday and came back yesterday night. The trip was organized under Kimathi’s IASTE (International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience). Each student paid kshs.3,400 which catered for everything from transport, entry fee and food. They slept in tents, however, which is fun.

The most remarkable experience according to one of them was witnessing a live hunt in which a cheetah hunted down, killed and feasted on a wildebeest as they watched.

Kalenjins and their Bull

The Kalenjin Student Association (DEKRISA) were busy slaughtering and feasting on a bull. They went for the bull at the Chaka Ranch. It was a feast to celebrate their culture and enhance unity among them. The Luhyas are having a similar event on the coming weekend, what they call Mulembe Night.

Andela Tech Event

Technology enthusiasts were not left behind. They had an event under the Andela Learning Community, which focuses on Android and web development. This event had free lunch, provided you brought your own laptop and were ready to learn about Android and the web, which is not bad.

This Friday, we will release a list of events and activities that you can attend to spice up your weekend. If you have any such event and would like people to know about it, please don’t hesitate to inform us. I know some of you would have wished to go to Masai Mara or eat free food while learning about Android development, but you didn’t know. There is a very serious information gap in Kimathi and that’s what we are trying to eradicate. We need your help. If you have any info, please send it to siliconwriter@gmail.com
