Last year, I ran my first trip to Kenya.
Organising and leading that trip was one of the best things I ever done, because helping others to travel and Africa are two of my biggest passions, so bring those two things together was absolutely amazing!
So…. I’m going to be running another trip in August and you are invited!!
Who is this trip for?
- You’ve always wanted to travel in Africa but have no clue where to start?
- You want an unforgettable adventure in an absolutely amazing place but none of your friends are interested and you don’t want to go alone?
- You want to experience local culture, eat local food and meet local people?
- You’ve always wanted to try solo travel but need a little encouragement first?
- You love travelling but want someone else to do all the planning and organising?
- You want to travel with some cool, like minded people and make friends for life?
- All of the above?
Then read on…
This won’t be a typical ‘tour’. This will be a laid-back, experiential and culturally immersive backpacking trip but without the hassle of having to find accommodation, working out how to get from A to B and booking all your own activities. Kind of like an independent solo adventure, with a group of friends built in.
The pace will be relaxed and there will be plenty of downtime, but I also have tons of fun activities planned. We’ll be using local transport, eating some of the best food in Kenya and meeting local people! For this reason I’ll be keeping the numbers small so you can get a true backpacker experience. We’ll also be staying in the heart of the action so you’ll get the chance to do your own thing and immerse yourself in the Kenyan culture.
So what will we be doing on the 2017 trip?
It will be very similar to the 2016 trip, but I have tweaked a few small things!
Search for the ‘Big 5’ on safari in the world famous Masai Mara.
Try your hand at Kenyan cooking.
Dine at 2 of Nairobi’s best restaurants.
Afternoon tea in Nairobi.
Nairobi walking tour.
Dinner in the Sekenani township, just outside the Masai Mara gate.

Take one of Africa’s most iconic train journeys – the Nairobi to Mombasa sleeper train.

Sailing and snorkelling trip on a traditional dhow.

Take a village tour with dinner and drinks at Giriama Paradise.
A goodbye dinner at one of Mombasa’s top restaurants.
Sound good? Who’s coming to Kenya with me?
