Making an Impact
Sometimes we travel to make a difference, not realising we'll return different ourselves. Participative travel is big and should be embraced wholeheartedly:
  • KWANDWE PRIVATE GAME RESERVE embraces participation in their wildlife conservation. From rhino darting to specialist guided activities. What a trip!
  • Change the lives of school children at GIBB'S FARM by DONATING A DESK.
  • Philanthropy and safaris are at the heart of CHEM CHEM, here guests connect with various community and conservation projects supported by their Foundation.
  • The cultural diversity at MWIBA LODGE is astounding and time with the Hadza and Da'Toga tribes cannot be compared to anything you've ever done.
  • SASAAB shows you Samburu culture in a humbling way. It's real. It's true. It changes you.
Family Time
With children of my own, I understand how it important it is to travel to places where connection is nurtured. I've just returned from spending time with the Carr-Hartleys in Kenya on the most amazing family safari. Visit these exclusive villas for a positive timeout:
