Mission Tours

Traveling for a good cause has benefits for you too – you’ll get to know the country you visit and the community first-hand, experience some things you wouldn’t if you traveled first-class and all-inclusive, change your perspective on things, and grow as a person. Did I mention adrenaline-packed adventures?

You can choose from a wide variety of activities: trekking, cycling, teaching, diving, building schools, and houses, helping at orphanages, you name it. It all depends on what your preferences are, but it’s worth mentioning that since travelling for a good cause has become extremely popular, there are countless companies which offer different volunteering trips.

A year-round destination, the Mara has one of the highest concentrations of predator and prey in Africa. It is also inhabited by the legendary Maasai communities with their cherished cattle herds. A century of close association with the wildlife has resulted in a symbiotic relationship, where wildlife and people coexist on a daily basis.

Immerse yourself in one of the Samburu tribe’s most significant traditions. Fall in step with the Samburu warriors as they lead their cattle to a dry river bed in the early morning.
