Volunteering in Kenya
During your volunteer placement in Kenya work directly with people from the Masai Mara community on the Wildlife Research and Conservation project. As well as conducting valuable research into the wildlife in the Naboisho Conservation area, volunteers will work with local children and encourage a passion and engagement with the local wildlife and environment.
The Masai Mara is considered one of the finest safari destinations in all of Africa, so use your free time to take part in one of the various locally run excursions. If seeing the big 5 from the ground isn’t quite thrilling enough for you, then perhaps consider doing it from the air on a Balloon Safari. Not only do you get an amazing view of Kenya’s plains, but between July and November you’ll be in the ideal place to witness the great migration.
Your evenings will likely be spent digesting the day’s experiences. Under a sky with a seemingly impossible number of stars, you’ll get a feel for what life in a rural Kenyan community is really like. Sampling local food and listening to the animal noises that resonate around the plains, you’ll certainly be richer for the insight into life in the Masai Mara.
Volunteer in Kenya and through your community and conservation work you’ll help to balance the interests of humans and animals and have a positive and sustainable impact in the Masai Mara.
