KENYA GIVEBACK SAFARI

Nairobi . Masai Mara . Amboseli . Nairobi
1/6

This amazing journey comprises unparalleled wildlife viewing and bird watching in both Masai Mara and Amboseli National Parks as well as visits to two highly successful philanthropic enterprises.  

The David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary, where you will meet your adopted baby elephant or rhino, was started by the late Dame Daphne Sheldrick in honor of her conservationist husband, David. To learn more about this amazing couple, please read Love, Life and Elephants, an African Love Story by Daphne Sheldrick.

 

The Kazuri Beads enterprise was started by the late Lady Susan Wood who wanted to create employment for local single mothers so that they could support their families. The bead 'factory' now creates such quality beads and beaded products that they are sold at Harrods of London. 
 

Your visits support these two worthwhile organizations, and provide you with pleasant memories, the satisfaction of having contributed...and maybe a little retail therapy.
