Kenya’s wildlife is world-famous, but it’s also under threat from poaching, climate change and development. Team up with local organizations in observing and safeguarding these magnificent creatures on a trip where you’ll get close to lions, cheetah, elephants, meet the last two remaining northern white rhinos, and more. To achieve our purpose, you’ll collect data on drives around game reserves, meet organizations who are heading up conservation efforts and rehabilitating injured and orphaned animals, and learn from anti-poaching teams as they work in the savannah.
This will be a truly up close and personal experience with wildlife in East Africa, but you will also have the chance to connect with community projects and those who call the region home. Visit the Maa Trust and Kazuri beads, two women’s empowerment initiatives, walk cattle home to their boma with a Maasai herder, and visit a Maasai village for an intimate experience into their culture and everyday life.
