Start your extraordinary journey flying above the expanse of the Mara, where flashes of red from Maasai shukas dot the rolling landscape and herds of zebra and gazelle roam. Find yourself immersed in the beauty of Kenya, as you spend time connecting with local communities and experience daily life by sharing tasks and stories. Visit local WE Villages projects such as a high school and health clinic, walk for water with a mama, and contribute to a sustainable development project like a new classroom. Finish your trip with a retreat to the Kenyan coast at our Toriana Beach House where you’ll have a chance to relax and recharge surrounded by sandy beach and palm trees, as well as explore the region’s rich history and culture.
