Your home during your stay in Kenya is a unique location in the middle of natural African bush. You will be stationed at the volunteer base in the wild Kenyan Mara Naboisho Conservancy, which borders the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. It is a wild and untouched open space, and at night you will hear roars from lions and hyenas laughing. The Masai Mara area has one of the highest lion densities in the country, and the wealth of wildlife ensures a unique encounter in their natural habitat as you gain understanding about the animals. The Mara is home to “The Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth” in the form of the Great Migration that takes place every year. Some lodges and camps offer massage and wellness treatments, so you can combine game viewing with first-class luxury.
Your accommodation will be the rustic yet comfortable dormitories at Koiyaki Guiding School, where you will also enjoy prepared meals from the resident cook in the outdoor eating and kitchen area. Mosquito nets and towels will be provided. Daily housekeeping and weekly laundry services are included, and hot water is available from late afternoon to early evening for showers.
Volunteering in Africa does not get any more authentic than this. As a wildlife volunteer in Kenya, you will gain a better sense of why volunteering is important, and experience first hand the positive impact you can have in the world. Make a difference – volunteer in Africa.
