Kenya is an enchanting country and few places in the world can better its varied tourist attractions. The overwhelming appeal of the wildlife sanctuaries, glorious beaches, breathtaking scenery in a vast and unspoilt land, an almost perfect climate, sophisticated accommodation and a hospitable happy people.
With the gifts of nature bestowed in such profusion, Kenya remains the first choice country to visit in Africa. There is so much to see and do the difficulty lies in deciding what to leave out of a Kenyan safari. After the hard work put in by the incentive award winners, they can now enjoy a holiday like no other. In the national parks and reserves they can enjoy watching the wild animals from close proximity from open top vehicles, and professional drivers and tour leaders will show them the animals in their natural settings.
Cross cultural Tourism in Kenya
This takes students to Western Kenya to the land of the Luos of central Nyanza who have traditionally subsisted on fishing and small scale farming. Students will be placed in individual home stays where they will begin to explore issues of tradition vs. modernity, change and continuity in socioeconomic practices, and community vs. state in a capitalist state.
Here they immerse themselves in the daily life and ritual of their host community and work with locals on projects chosen by community leaders. They stay in homesteads in the rural village in Kenya where they will eat local foods, sleep in a local rural homestead, herd cattle ,use oxen plough, ride bicycles to the market, attend market days and other village chores. Through hard work, they begin to understand and appreciate the problems and joys of living in a developing country.
Those seeking overseas voluntary work and volunteer opportunities abroad will discover the difference one individual can make. Whether you find yourself teaching English in a school in Africa, building a community center, or tending to village daily chores in Kenya, one thing is certain: this overseas voluntary work experience will change your life. These are a trans formative experience to remember and to grow on. All student exchange programs end with 6 to 10 days spent exploring the environment and culture of the surrounding country. On these adventures, you might visit the Lake Victoria wildlife sanctuaries and the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Ndere Island National Park and Kakamega forest. Our high school summer programme is designed both for adventure and reflection.
This final period of your high school programme offers you an opportunity to reflect on the experience and how you will integrate it into your life back home. The student exchange programme is a two to three week home stay in a remote rural village. We can extend this program as per the demands of the students or the programme organizers. Our high school summer programs allow a maximum of 18 students per group; have two leaders and two to three in-country support staff.
