Travel with a purpose in Kenya
Embark on an unforgettable 12-day philanthropic journey through the heart of Africa. Explore the capital of Nairobi—the “green city in the sun”—and the diverse conservation experiences on offer, including adopting an elephant and hand-feeding giraffes. Tread across vast plains at Chyulu Hills National Park accompanied by a Maasai warrior, and learn the traditional Maasai way of life. Cherish the sanctuary at Ol Pejeta and Lewa Downs conservancy and delve into initiatives by the Africa Foundation and andBeyond, grounded in community participation and driven by local leadership.
Good to know: Vegetarianism is almost unheard of here, mobile banking is the way to go, and Kenyans like to dress up, so make an effort!
Travel with a purpose in Tanzania
This 10-day humanitarian philanthropic journey traverses through the heart of Africa. Spend time with disabled workers at the Shanga project in Arusha and meet individuals from the Community Leaders Education Fund bursary programme. Explore the spectacular Lake Manyara National Park and cycle through bustling local villages. Descend into the Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, and discover the endless plains of the world-famous Serengeti National Park. Be a part of the daily rituals of the Maasai, and visit schools and clinics to see the leaders of tomorrow and the protectors of today.
Good to know: The Serengeti plains are home to the largest animal migration in the world, and Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest inactive and unfilled volcanic caldera.
Travel with a purpose in South Africa
Starting in andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, this 10-day philanthropic adventure through magnificent South Africa offers a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the KwaZulu-Natal communities. Gain first-hand knowledge of various development projects and participate in rhino conservation. In Cape Town, interact with the locals, then move up the whale coast to the gorgeous town of Hermanus, where you will have the opportunity to meet future conservation leaders on the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. Choose to delve into the African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary, and splurge on a whale watching trip.
Good to know: In 2014, the NY Times declared Cape Town the best place in the world to visit, and the Cape Floral Kingdom boasts 7,000 plant varieties found nowhere else on earth!
