KENYA

Make a Difference as a Team
ALONGSIDE MAASAI AND KIPSIGIS COMMUNITIES

10 Days | Trips depart every Saturday

The rolling landscape is dotted with flashes of red from Maasai shukas, as the sounds of children playing and greetings of “jambo!” fill the air. Be welcomed into a community in the Maasai Mara, and immerse yourself in the region’s beauty as you take time to connect with local families and experience daily life in Kenya. Work together as a team on a sustainable development project and experience how this work helps empower communities to create a brighter future.

Trip Overview

Watch for the circular patterns formed by traditional Maasai bomas while flying over the Great Rift Valley, before arriving at your team’s accommodations in the Maasai Mara.

Be welcomed into one of our partner communities, where you’ll have the chance to build team bonds as you connect with and work alongside local families throughout your trip.

Work alongside community members to help build a new school that will educate children for years to come.

Join the women of the community, called mamas, as they share their traditional craft of beading with you. Engage in lively discussions and explore how projects such as beading empower these women to earn a sustainable income and provide for their families.

Walk in the footsteps of a local mama on a journey to collect water from the Mara River.

Venture through the Kenyan savannah on an all-day safari, joined by your local guide.
