Departure information

This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

During your trip, you will stay in small, boutique hotels, lodges and camps. This ensures that local people are employed and local materials, crafts and produce are used. Many, like House of Waine in Nairobi and your camp in Samburu National Reserve, take measures to go even further by providing eco-friendly toiletries and promoting local businesses and charities.

Your camp at Mount Kenya is one of the few camps allowed within the national park and they ensure that their ecological footprint is as small as possible by ensuring high levels of energy conservation, waste recycling and eschewing the use of pesticides, CFCs and using only local produce.

You will also visit the Ol Pejeta Conservancy while at Mount Kenya - Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in east Africa, and home to three of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a Sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya, and still manages a very successful livestock programme. Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders, to ensure wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians.

The Impacts of this Trip

The camp at Mount Kenya, alongside its environmental measures also rely heavily on local people for staff, guides, dancers and entertainers. As a result, the camp offers subsidised medical care to the local community, focusing particularly on child-immunisation and maternal care.

Tents are thatched using locally harvested grasses and erected using traditional methods and local craftsmen. Local orphanages are supported by providing clothes, shoes, food and charitably raised funds and the camp ensure that local traditions and cultures are showcased for guests to appreciate and upheld so that they will continue.

We will also make a contribution for each booking to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the DSWT is one of the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation programs in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation. You can visit the DSWT while in Nairobi where you will have the chance to gain valuable insight into the work Daphne and her team are undertaking.
