Kenya holds a special place in our hearts. As our most visited African destination, lasting friendships and bonds have been formed through many local projects, interactions, safaris, and love. Mingle with our good friends in the country, ranging from the Maasai people and local school children, the Big Five on safari, local NGO’s and major players in African business and development as well.
Kenya is the hub of East African business, development, human/wildlife interaction and many more themes that have become increasingly prevalent in our increasingly interconnected world.
