Where does your money go?

We are a social enterprise. This means we place the same emphasis on doing the right thing and making a positive impact in the communities we travel to, as we do on making a profit. To prove it, we’ve graphed how your fee will be spent during this adventure.

We are proud to report that 53% of your fee will be spent in Ethiopia, stimulating local business, creating local jobs and supporting local communities. Another 6%, which is 50% of our profit, is invested back into local initiatives and grass-roots charities.

Full itinerary

Day 1 (B, L, D | Boutique Hotel): Welcome to Nairobi

Adventure Out Loud to meet you at the airport and transfer you to our hotel. If you’re feeling energetic, you can jump straight in to the action with a walk through Karura Forest in search for Nairobi’s elusive monkeys or a rejuvenating yoga session at the African Yoga Project.

Day 2 (B, L, D | Boutique Hotel): Giraffes, baby elephants and the inspirational Tommy Nyawir

Today, we head for the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Nairobi Giraffe Centre. This is your chance to get up-close- and-personal with these incredible animals. If you’re lucky you might even get a kiss from Ed the giraffe. After lunch, be inspired by Tommy Nyawir and the heart-warming Mirror of Hope, a community based organisation empowering vulnerable children living in Africa’s largest slum by keeping them in school.

Day 3 - 5 (3B, 3L, 3D | Boutique Hotel): A Cultural Immersion

Three action packed days of fun, laughter and dancing with our sponsor students at the Mirror of Hope as we join them for their holiday program. Learn Swahili, go on a field trip and make a difference by helping the MOH team facilitate the program.

Day 6 (B, D | Camping): Kibera Immersion

Explore the sights and sounds of Africa’s largest slum as you visit the home of your sponsor student, meet their family and feast on a delicious Kenyan lunch that you’ll learn to cook. This is the perfect opportunity to immerse in Kenyan culture, practice your Swahili and get to know some of the most resilient and remarkable people on the planet.

Day 7 (B, L, D | Luxury Safari Camp): Hello Masai Mara

Hello Masai Mara! Africa’s best safari destination, the Mara adjoins the infamous Serengeti National Park and is home to the greatest show on earth – the Great Migration. Over the next 4 days, you’ll be living in a secluded, luxury safari camp inside the Conservation Area.

This will give you the best chance to spot all of Africa’s exotic safari animals, including the Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. You may even hear these animals as you relax around an open fire at your secluded, luxury safari camp.

Day 8 (B, L, D | Luxury Safari Camp): Safari

Up early, we begin our search for Africa’s greatest predators. They are also on the hunt, for a nutritious wildebeest breakfast before they retire to the shelter of the trees for a cat- nap. You can also expect to see many of Africa’s exotic African animals today and if you’re lucky, you might even spot a rhino, a leopard or a cheetah.

Day 9 (B, L, D | Luxury Safari Camp): Why did the wildebeest cross the river?

Each year, more than a million wildebeest brave the Mara River’s crocodile infested waters in their search for greener grass.
This is the greatest natural spectacle on earth and although it is dependent on annual timing, this region offers fantastic wildlife viewing all- year-around. Today we visit the section of the Mara River where the wildebeest cross.

Day 10 (B, L, D | Boutique Hotel): Travel to Nairobi

After a final morning game drive, we make our way back to the bright lights of Nairobi. This will be your final night in Africa and the perfect occasion to celebrate with new friends who have shared in this unforgettable, enriching and rejuvenating journey.

Day 11 (B): End of tour

Spend the day packing, relaxing and saying goodbye to your new friends at the Mirror of Hope before boarding your flight back to Australia.

Make a difference
Sponsor a disadvantaged student as part of your adventure.

111 million African children didn’t go to school in 2017. We’re not ok with this and we’re doing something about it! 

With 47% of Africa’s population living below the poverty line, sponsoring a disadvantaged child through school is one of the best ways to fight poverty. Education empowers children to change their circumstances while educated women have fewer babies, a significant problem in Africa where birth rates are double the world average.

For less than $20 a week, you can make a real difference during your adventure. Simply tick the sponsor box when you register and we’ll send you a profile for a student who is looking for a sponsor.

Malaria is a low risk in the areas you will be travelling. To further minimise the risk:
1. Discuss malaria prevention medication with your travel doctor

You should visit a travel doctor at least 3 months before departure. At a minimum, you will need proof of your Yellow Fever vaccine to enter Kenya and to re-enter Australia.

What medications do I need to bring?

Please discuss medications with your travel doctor at least 3 months before departure. At a minimum, we recommend you bring medication for malaria and travellers diarrhoea. If you occasionally use specific medication, you should also bring that.
