What we've been up to

#OnetouchLive Dandora

By on February 20, 2017

Insecurity. Muggings. Theft. Garbage. That’s what Dandora is associated with. In an attempt to see if this is all that this 40-year-old settlement in Nairobi’s Eastlands District is all about, we ventured there last January under the guidance of a team from Dandora Hip Hop City.

#OnetouchLive Aberdares

By on November 30, 2016

From every trip we make, two main factors determine if a trip is successful: the photos, and the camaraderie. For Aberdare, it was the latter. Not that we didn’t find enough beauty to make great photos, no. It’s just that this trip was full of many great moments in between taking photos that made it […]

#OnetouchLive Magadi

By on October 11, 2016

We never seem to get enough of Magadi. This was our third trip there in as many years and we believe we’ll still return there next year. If you’ve been there, we’re sure you know why. Despite the heat and semi arid landscapes that mean very few people call it home, a beauty that baffles […]

#OnetouchLive Eastlando

By on June 28, 2016

Muggings. Carjackings. Thuggery. These are just some of the adjectives used to describe Nairobi’s Eastlands. But is this really all that happens in Eastlands? We sought to find out.

Ever wondered what happens at a #OnetouchLive trip? No? Well, incase you ever do, here’s a video that will give you an idea.

#OnetouchLive Hell’s Gate

By on June 2, 2016

Hello everybody! About one month ago, we finally went for our first #OnetouchLive trip of the year, to Hell’s Gate National Park in Naivasha. It has always been a favourite OT weekend getaway, due to its proximity to the city and incredibly breathtaking scenery, which is sure to blow you away every single time you […]

#OnetouchLive Mfangano Island

By on June 1, 2016

Mfangano Island’s beauty and the warmth of it’s people had been calling on us for a while. We responded towards the end of May and decided to spend a couple of days there, immersing ourselves in the culture, lifestyles and food of Mfangano’s inhabitants.

#OnetouchLive_Beyond Intro

Choosing to focus on the beauty of the people and places we visit, we rarely give a glimpse into what goes into showcasing the beauty and cultures of Africa.

#OnetouchLive – Ngong Road Forest

By on March 21, 2016

It’s not a place many would like to visit because of the stories of carjackings and muggings that have happened here. These were also our objection statements when we were invited to pay a visit by one of the Ngong Road Forest Association members. In her defence and that of the forest, she told us there’s parts that are […]
