Free-time activities

Kenya offer a wide variety of activities for volunteers and visitors:
Wildlife Safari: There’s nothing more famous about Kenya than going on a safari to one of the many national parks or reserves located throughout the country. The most famous wildlife viewing sanctuaries include Maasai Mara, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Tsavo East.For many, the goal is to catch a glimpse of the African Big 5 which includes lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.
Relax on the East African Coast: The East African Indian Ocean coast is one of the best places in the world to take it easy and enjoy a beach holiday.Along with pristine stretches of white sand and swaying palms, the laid back attitude and friendly Kenyans along the coast add to the serenity.To check out the Kenyan coast, you might visit areas around Mombasa, Diani, Malindi or Kilifi
Climb Mount Kenya: Not nearly as popular as neighboring giant Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya remains Africa’s second tallest peak and is often considered a more challenging climb. The breathtaking scenery is marked by incredible views of Kenya and even great glimpses of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Most trekkers summit Mount Kenya at Lenana Peak point
