Day 2: Mombasa

Today is up to you. Relax on the beach, shop in the Old Town, visit Fort Jesus, or experience the ancient Kayas where the local tribes once worshipped their gods. The Kayas are forests that held significance in traditional culture in this area and there are a number of Kayas extending down the coast into Tanzania. A local guide will take you through Kaya Kinondo, one Kaya that has become an eco-tourism project supporting the villages that have used the Kaya for centuries of ritual and worship.

Day 6: Amboseli to Nairobi

After a morning game drive, head back to Nairobi.

Day 7: Nairobi

Today you head to Kibera, the slums of Nairobi where Amani Kibera operates.  Amani Kibera is an NGO started by some young local men who wanted to improve the quality of life for their community.  They have established a football league and provided team shirts and umpire uniforms, engendering a sense of pride and belonging amongst the players.  If it’s the weekend, there is a good chance of joining the crowd to watch a game.  Amani Kibera has also opened the first and only public library in this slum of 2 million people.  We will visit the library where you can chat with students, and witness the inspiring intensity with which they pursue their education.  After lunch at a local restaurant, we will visit a young women’s group who make bead jewellery to sell at market and discuss issues surrounding growing up as a woman in the slum.  They are very welcoming and keen to teach you how to make the jewellery.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Nairobi

We have really experienced Kenya as a land of contrasts, from the slums in Nairobi to the wilderness of Tsavo to the bustling coast and back to the Amboseli plains. We have met people from several different tribes and experienced their varying cultures, gaining a deep understanding of the challenges and the dreams of this blossoming nation.  If you have more time some of Nairobi's highlights include: National Museum, David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Centre, Kazuri Beads, Karen Blixen’s House and Nairobi National Park.  We will transfer you to the airport for your departing flight.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch
