Making 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 by sponsoring a disadvantaged student through school. Simply tick the sponsor box when you apply to join this adventure and we’ll send you a profile for a student who is looking for a sponsor.

FAQs

Do I need any yoga experience?

No. Tam has experienced teaching all levels and given our group is limited to 12 people Tam is able to provide one-on-one direction and it is also possible to offer beginner and experienced classes throughout the day.

What does a typical day look like?

The best time to see the animals is early morning and late afternoon. Therefore, a typical days on safari will look like:

5:30am – Lite breakfast
6 – 10am – Game drive
10 – 11am – Brunch
11am – 3pm – Yoga, meditation, relaxing by the pool and lunch.
3 – 6pm – Afternoon safari
7 – 8pm – Dinner
8pm onwards – Relaxing by an open fire

Do I need to bring my own mat?

No. We will provide mats for you if you do not wish to bring your own.

Is Kenya safe?

Yes. Kenyans love visitors and most will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is extremely rare for anything bad to happen within Kenya’s national parks and we will not be travelling to the border regions where the Australian Government advises not to travel.

As with all travel, your biggest risk is being robbed or having a road accident. Travelling in a small group, avoiding popular tourist areas, travelling with reputable companies and having our experienced tour leaders and local team with you 24/7 significantly reduces these risks. See SmartTraveller or talk to our team for further travel advice.
