Kenya is well-known for its incredible wildlife parks and Safaris, but of course there is so much more to this wonderful East African country.
Kenya has over 70 tribal groups and even more languages — with English and Swahili spoken throughout most of Kenya. The country’s capital city Nairobi is often referred to as the birthplace of humanity.
Our volunteer locations and settings in Kenya are varied. In Nairobi volunteers live and work in one of Africa’s largest cities. Mombasa on the coast is the center of Kenya’s coastal tourism trade. For a more rural experience, you can live and volunteer with the Masai tribe in the Rift Valley. The hills of Machakos and the savannahs of Lumo are some of the most rural areas we send volunteers to worldwide.
