Our Story

Nearly 20 years ago, we began providing adventure training and outdoor education trips for local school children and British Army groups. 

What started out as a small company in the heart of Kenya’s rift valley has blossomed into a leading outdoor activity and adventure company, providing both student and adult groups with the opportunity to learn through adventure.

Our priority is for you to have a safe, educational, fun and meaningful adventure, interacting with the local people, taking in breathtaking landscapes, and supporting community and conservation projects.

Ecological, Sustainable, Responsible...That’s Who We Are!

ECOLOGICAL

The highest level of attention is given to the quality of our trips, defined by safety and based on exploring, utilising, respecting and caring for the natural environment.

SUSTAINABLE

An amount equivalent to 10% of our annual profits supports: company and community members in outdoor training; environmental and community projects; and grassroots campaigning organisations.

RESPONSIBLE

Our experienced staff have taken over 20,000 students from around the world to safely explore the people, culture, wildlife and wilderness of East Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia. Our client’s well-being and safety are our paramount concern.

Our Community

Community is at the heart of everything we do. Nestled in the heart of Laikipia, Kenya, we’re surrounded by a warm and vibrant mix of people. Together we live in harmony, bounded by the shared respect of our culture and land.

Understanding how lucky we are to be a part of such heritage, we prioritise cultural immersion into each of our programmes; in Kenya and beyond, giving you a unique opportunity to experience authentic local culture while fostering respect and understanding with the local people.

Land

Laikipia County in central Kenya is a gateway to Mount Kenya and Ngare Ndare Forest, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are home to a diverse species of wildlife including leopards, giraffes, elephants, and Grevy’s zebras.  

Culture

Laikipia is home to diverse ethnic communities, including the Maasai, Kikuyu, Borana, Samburu, Kalenjin, Meru, and Turkana, as well as settlers of Somali, European and Asian origin.

Conservation

Laikipia is also home to the remarkable Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Through the conservancy and other grassroots organisations, local community members lead the charge for animal & environmental conservation. 

Responsible Tourism Policy

Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment.

Ours is a ‘total approach’ to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to our internal practices. 

Our trips are designed to allow a high degree of economic benefit to the local communities; we buy local produce, eat local food and use local services, thus ensuring that as much money as possible is retained within the local economies and the host communities. 

With our responsible tourism policy we are continually reassessing our trips, trying at all times to ensure that they are socially, economically and environmentally sound.
