This authentic 16 day tour with planned with families in mind. Explore the diverse city of Nairobi and surrounds including visiting a baby elephant orphanage, a giraffe centre, and baby animal orphanage.
If you’ve ever had “community involvement in a developing country” or “African safari” on your bucket list, but not quite had the courage or know-how to make it happen? Well we’re most certainly the right tour company for you to take care of all your planning, preparation and ensuring you have the most amazing adventure of a life time!
Our large focus is on providing REAL African experiences and adventures, and our guests are nurtured and cared for 24/7. Some years ago, we established a primary school in a slum in Kenya, so our guests experience not only the abundantly rich culture and magnificent beauty of Africa, but go to places most travellers never go to meet people most travellers never meet and support and make a difference in the lives of local people, local communities and local small businesses.
Our guests forge everlasting friendships and leave having had a truly life-changing experience.
Visiting David Sheldrick’s Baby Elephant Orphanage
Experience a REAL safari and game drive, through Nairobi National Park, located just a few short kilometers from Nairobi CBD. Here we can possibly see 4 of the Big 5 – lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, giraffe and sometimes black rhino. There are no elephant in the park however.

The house is large, with plenty of communal living space, we share rooms, and lots of areas.
