This volunteer project has its base in the Laikipia wildlife area. Laikipia is home to fascinating and ethnically diverse communities, including the Maasai, who live side-by-side with Kikuyu, Europeans and Turkana. The region is considered the gateway to Kenya’s wild Northern frontier country. Wild and sparsely populated, it is largely covered by large privately owned ranches. Despite being a non-protected area, wildlife in Laikipia is abundant. It has the highest diversity of large mammals in Kenya, including significant populations of all major predators and the famous ‘Big 5'.
During your work and travel in Africa you will be comfortably accommodated in a self-contained cottage on a family property, surrounded by the Laikipia Wildlife Conservation area. You will cater for your own meals, however transport to Nanyuki will be provided approximately once a week (every ten days) for grocery shopping. During your time out in the field with the Mobile clinic, you will be doing some basic camping and experience Kenyan cuisine.
Kenya offers savannahs rich with big game, unique cultures unchanged by the modern world, unspoiled beaches, tropical forests, snow-capped mountains, deserts and endless opportunities for adventure and discovering a new world. Come to Kenya and begin your own great adventure story.
