Small group tour, ideal for solos & couples:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. For those with limited time, a small group tour will save valuable time in planning, and on vacation.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis trip allows travelers to view wildlife in their natural habitat from Lake Nakuru to the Great Rift Valley. In Nairobi we visit David Sheldricks Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre. These conservation projects allows travelers to see the animals up close while learning more about them and their plight in the modern world.
Responsible travel is one of the pillars our company is built upon. All of our travelers are provided with information regarding Responsible Travel at all stages of the booking process and while traveling with us. Our leaders are also trained extensively in responsible travel and will advocate for this throughout our trips. On our vehicles we supply drinking water so travelers can re-fill their water bottles.
50 million bottles are used in Kenya annually, creating a monumental environmental challenge. To do our part all our overland trucks have drinking water. We encourage all our travelers to bring with them a reusable drinking bottle to ensure we aren't contributing to the plastic bottle issue in Kenya.
On this tour, all travelers will receive a reusable cloth bag to use throughout the trip. Plastic pollution is huge issue so this small gesture for our clients will assist in campaign to stop the use of plastic bags while shopping and visiting market places for souvenirs.
PeopleAn important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing “real life” in the destination. On this trip, we stay in the remote region of Loita Hills. This is the home of the traditional Maasai people. We camp in the village where we gain an insight into the culture and ancient ways of this proud East African community. A local elder will deliver a fascinating talk about the Maasai and their history and culture.
All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Kenyans (most of whom live locally) including all our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides, and accommodation providers.
We have a Foundation which was set up to empower travelers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. Our Foundation now supports over 50 local, grassroots projects around the world. Over the past 15 years, The Foundation has distributed over AU $5 million to projects tackling areas such as sustainable development, human rights, child protection, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, education and healthcare. Organisations and projects currently supported in Kenya include:
East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) promotes the conservation and wise use of the environment and natural resources in East Africa. The tour operator's Foundation directly supports EAWLS anti-poaching programs that protect wildlife in the Masai Mara ecosystem. These anti-poaching projects rely heavily on Rangers to patrol areas where wildlife exists and all donations will go towards funding the purchase of equipment the Rangers need to carry on protecting the amazing wildlife found in the Masai Mara.
This family trip has a maximum group size of 16, to minimise our impact on the places we visit. Overtourism is an issue we are very conscious of and we are taking measures to ensure our impact on the communities we visit and their environment is our top priority.
