Excellent teacher taster trip to Tsavo. Had a wonderful experience where it was great to be back to basics. Meet amazing people, got submerged in eye opening realities, had new experiences and made fantastic memories to take with me!

Once in a lifetime experience with an amazing team. Shout out to Chris and Laura for being inspirational leaders, and to the entire Camp Kenya team for being extremely hospitable.

Seba Haidar, Kenya Teacher Taster Trip 2021

Both leaders were fantastic; calm, professional and approachable throughout. Felt safe driving around in a huge truck and with locals at all times. The camp itself and staff are very organised. The food provided each day was like a restaurant meal! Way above my expectations. The activities through the week were varied and entertaining. I am looking forward to facing my fears once again, and this time bringing students with me!
