The road from Nairobi to Magadi is flooded, bridges have been swept away
and reaching the camp can be a challenge.

The rains on the Mau escarpment must have been very heavy, in 5 hours the river has gone up 8 meters, the water almost reached the cottages.

Thanks to the EU and ACC, Loisiijo has now solar power for the dinning room and kitchen. The Solar pump has also been installed and we are able to pump river water to the main filtering tank.

This is a great improvement and a great pleasure to have cold drinks and lights without the humming of a generator.
