Typical Itinerary

A typical itinerary focuses on community service and development, often lasting 2-3 weeks, usually in July.

A few days are spent in Nairobi, getting over the jet lag and getting oriented to the philosophy of the program. Throughout the program, usually after each dinner, participants gather to reflect on the day’s experiences and to plan for the next day. At the end, participants are afforded the opportunity to evaluate the whole trip.

Option One 2-17 July inclusive i.e. participants arrive early on 2nd July, go on safari 14 - 16th and leave in the morning of the 17th July. Fee:US$2350 per person
Option Two 2-23 July inclusive i.e. participants arrive early on 2nd July, go on safari 14- 16th, and then live at the village chairman’s home 17-23 July. Fee:US$2450 per person

Note: The final fee for Option Two will be determined by numbers.

Application Instructions

"The three weeks have opened up so many doors – to see and do so much that I have never encountered before. In three weeks I have experienced so much, emotionally, mentally and physically…nothing could have prepared me for such amazing and memorable adventures and truly life-changing opportunities."

- Brandi O’Keefe, Newfoundland, Canada (Pearson College)

"It is truly an excellent international students’ summer program. It teaches us to be more tolerant, more open-minded to the things and people around us. It is an amazing opportunity to experience a different culture, and have a good time far from home."
