Visits to Conservation Projects
When travelling through East Africa, you can get the impression that mankind has had little or no effect on these landscapes and their animal populations. Unfortunately, however, the opposite is true. There have been vast changes over the last few decades caused by humans and a lot of animal species have become extinct or are now close to extinction. But luckily, there are a multitude of projects that aim at maintaining or restoring the natural beauty.
We integrate visits to conservation projects into our itineraries, both as a way of supporting them and because they offer our clients a lot of qualified information – and often a different perspective.
One example is the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi where baby elephants that have lost their mothers are taken care of and brought up by hand.
Another example are the tree planting projects by the Green Belt Movement which also aims at empowering women.
