Dates & Activities
The group will travel together departing from New York's JFK airport and traveling to Nairobi, Kenya in late May (exact dates TBD). The entire trip will last 12 days which includes travel. We will split our digging time between our Lwala Community Alliance clinic sites, our Lwala school sites, and our youth community groups from YACREN. The group will have the opportunity to help build a Home Garden, work with participants in the facility gardens, visit with participants in their homes and with their families and host a cooking class.
After our hands have become properly callused, the group will relax into a 4 day 3 night luxury safari through the Maasai Mara Wildlife Reserve. We'll spend the mornings and evenings tracking the Big Five while relaxing in some of the most rustic chic environments Africa has to offer.
Total Trip Cost: $5,000. This includes your round trip airfare from New York to Nairobi, your Kenya VISA, all lodging, food, and ground transportation, the safari and national park fees, your personal DIG guides.
Expenses not covered: You will be responsible for obtaining your own passport, travel and health insurance (which must include emergency evacuation), any vaccinations your doctor advises, appropriate malaria medication, alcohol, and any shopping you intend to do.
This trip will be limited to 6 individuals so it is important to contact us as soon as possible if you are thinking of joining. Once we know your interest we will nail down our dates and move the trip forward to booking.
DIG will ask for a $500 non refundable deposit by March 15th and you will then be tasked with getting the necessary vaccinations, paperwork, and malaria medication before departure. All deposit checks should be made payable to:
