Something you would like to learn from these brilliant gappers.........

Week 2 has gone so quick and unfortunately we have come to the end of our stay at Camp Muhaka. Our anticipation is that Camp Tsavo will be much greater with wildlife project element and more forms of project work of which everyone is counting forward to; obviously all of us will Miss Muhaka and its hospitality and the friends that we’ve made in the village and at the project, during the two weeks of our stay.

Healthcare Outreach 2015




In November, 30 truly inspiring healthcare professionals took 2-weeks out of their busy schedules to come and join us in Kenya and do something amazing.

Established 5 years ago, the Healthcare Outreach programme has already impacted greatly on the lives of rural Kenyans and this year was no exception. Throughout the 14 days we ran 6 ‘pop up’ health clinics in villages situated within the Tsavo region of Kenya.

A Whirlwind Tour of Kenya and Tanzania!!

Meet Phil, who although is well travelled himself is relatively new to Camps International.  October half term was the first time he had visited our Camps in Tanzania and Kenya – over to him…


Wow!! What a trip!

As a newcomer to Camps, I was in the same position as the accompanying teachers, wondering what the Recce had in store for us in Africa! Everything was packed, itineraries completed and what an action packed adventure it would be!

Hakuna Matata - Kenya/Tanzania Recce Blog 2015

Hi all, my name is Emma and I work on the Expeditions team for Camps International. This October I got the opportunity to go to Kenya and Tanzania on the Teacher’s recce.

Throughout the course of the week, we visited several camps, local projects and communities. We landed in Tanzania at 9am, after flying through the night (and having several plane breakfasts!). Whilst there we visited Camp Mbokomu, Camp Kidia and spent two days at Camp Tanga (our beach camp – the views are absolutely stunning!).


The experience you draw when you volunteer in Africa is just Awesome; something that you get along to help, challenge yourself, and definitely you end up enjoying and have unforgettable memories. I called for my Gap year to Kenya and my trip, was just beyond my anticipation


The first thing I noticed when I woke up in Camp Tsavo was the amazing view of land and mountains. On my first day we went to Sasenyi Primary School, the head teacher met us there and talked a bit about the school and what they have done so far.

Kenya Memories

We said our goodbyes to the incredible CPhI Angels on Sunday. It was a pleasure to spend the week with such a fantastic group of people, with an inspiring desire to step up and do something amazing.

After completing the classroom floor at Sasyeni School, we spent our last days in Kenya learning more about the day to day lives of the Tsavo community.

CPhi Angels in Kenya!

We were super excited to collect our first CPhI Angels group from Mombasa Airport on Saturday 05 September..........

CPhI are a global pharmaceutical exhibitor who have teamed up with our charity partner Global Angels, to run a corporate trip for the CPhI community.

During their 8 days in Kenya, the team will be helping with a new classroom construction at Sasenyi School and seeing first-hand the incredible initiatives that Camps International are running.

Here’s a glimpse into the first few days of the Kenya adventure:
