Responsible Travel

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.

Planet and people

We are a small company based in Nanyuki town just near Mount Kenya. Our dedicated team, who will be leading and supporting you on your trek, take pride in their team spirit. Together, we discuss every aspect of our mountain trips, from camp and tent preparation to recipes and menus, and we encourage feedback and input from our core group of guides and cook. We have all walked together every step of the mountain trails, and stayed at every camp site, on and off the beaten track. Your safety and enjoyment are our primary concerns, and we hope you will have a memorable mountain experience with our friendly crew who look forward to getting to know you and exchanging views.

Community
Your trip will be supporting our locally based mountain team and their families. We make all our financial arrangements directly with our Guide, so we can guarantee our team is paid in full on the day, or day after, your trip ends.

Our Cook is very skilled at producing delicious meals, even in the most remote locations. All the fresh food for our trips is bought from Nanyuki’s market and other supplies from locally owned shops. Our Cook aims to support the local shopkeepers first and foremost.

The lodges in Laikipia employ local people and some lodges are managed and/or hosted by local Maasai communities. All lodges that we recommend support community projects.

We can organise temporary membership of AMREF flying doctors to give you added reassurance and to support the charitable work of the flying doctor service. Your membership is in addition to, but not instead of travel insurance.

Environment
Our Guides will give you plenty of tips on high altitude trekking techniques and chat to you about the mountain’s flora, fauna and the history of its exploration. The team understand the importance of preserving the mountain environment for the future and they are well versed in ‘leave no trace’ principles, collecting any litter left on the trails by others, as well as removing their own kitchen waste.

Your Mount Kenya park fees support the work of the Kenya Wildlife Service in preserving the pristine wilderness of the mountain and the surrounding national park. Your lodge conservancy fees support local community projects, including conservation of some of Africa’s most endangered species.
