WEI Safari Trip

Adventure and philanthropy come together beautifully to make this a feel-good trip for all.

July 16th - 24, 2017

More than one million wildebeest, half a million gazelles, and two hundred thousand zebras constantly on the move, all in search of fresh grass and water. The Great Wildebeest Migration in eastern Africa is a spine-chillingly majestic event everyone should see once in their lifetime. 

This comprehensive safari visits the famous Masai Mara to witness the Migration, plus three other diverse Kenyan wilderness areas including the lakes of the Great Rift Valley, Amboseli with its stunning views of Mt Kilimanjaro, and the undulating hills of Tsavo.

The safari ends in a village where WEI has just completed installing a life-giving rain water catchment tank for fresh water. You will join in the women’s joyful celebration of clean water, freedom from the back-breaking job of carrying water, and your contribution to the life-changing gift of a water tank.

See the work of WEI Women's Groups first hand as well as experience the beauty and luxuries that Kenya has to offer.
