This expedition is designed to give families a real taste of Africa with the support of an incredible team boasting an immaculate safety record. Enjoy exclusive access to the stunning 80,000-acre Rukinga Sanctuary that is based in the wilderness of Kenya’s Taru desert and borders the majestic Tsavo National Park, the largest in Kenya. This exclusive wildlife conservation area, which is also an important migration corridor, acts as the base for your two-week family programme. <br />Your family will have the opportunity to work with the local school and community, contributing to environmental education workshops and the improvement of facilities. Work with local safari guides to learn how to track wildlife on foot, identify animal spore & tracks, as well as basic bush craft skills and activities suitable for children. For two full days you will visit Tsavo East National Park for your Big Game Safari and experience some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa. This tour ends with a well-earned rest at the Kenya coast for an Indian Ocean beach break on the sandy white beach and turquoise blue waters of Diani Beach. Trip highlights - Community development volunteer programme designed for volunteer families - Game ranger & bush craft skills - Night game drives - Big game safari at Tsavo East National Park - Relax and play on Kenya’s South Coast at Diani Beach <br />Day-by-day itinerary<br />Day 1:Arrive Mombasa and transfer to Camp Tsavo. Camp Tsavo is a 2 to 3 hour drive from Mombasa and established on the 80,000-acre conservation area of Rukinga Sanctuary. After lunch you will be provided with an arrival safety brief and a full orientation of the conservation area. The rest of the day is left for you to settle in and enjoy the views over the Taru Desert, its mountains, and the abundant wildlife viewing on offer. Day 2-3:Bush Skills and Game Viewing. For two rewarding days, resident wildlife experts and experienced game rangers will teach you how to track wildlife, identify spore & tracks of wildlife species as well as basic bush survival skills and wildlife conservation techniques. Day 4:Tsavo East National Park. After breakfast, depart for Tsavo East National Park for big game viewing. You will be able to identify all the common species of African wildlife in their habitat as well as rarer species. You will take the ‘River Route’ and stop for a picnic lunch at the amazing Lugard falls. Enjoy more game viewing en-route back to Camp Tsavo. Day 5-8:Community Phase. During this period you will get involved with the refurbishment of a rural primary school, which may include some basic activities such painting or desk making. You will be expected to interact with the school children to encourage the importance of wildlife and environmental conservation through education. Your personal contribution to the school and its students plays an essential part in wildlife conservation and effectively reduces human/wildlife conflict in the area. Day 9:Tsavo East National Park. Set out after an early breakfast for another day in Tsavo East National Park, this time following a different route.Day 10-11:Bush Skills and Game Viewing.

Your chance to chill out on Kenya’s famous south coast and get rid of the safari dust! After breakfast you will be transferred to Pinewood Village beach resort (aprox 3.5 hours away). Pinewood Village is a boutique hotel situated on the unspoiled shores of the beautiful warm Indian Ocean. Optional activities here include scuba diving, snorkelling, kite surfing, big game fishing and shopping. Day 14:Departure. Transfer from your hotel to the airport for your departure<br />B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D=Dinner<br />Volunteer travel - what's it all about?<br />Are you looking for an adventurous trip with a purpose, or on a gap year or career break? If you want to make a difference in some of the world’s most important conservation areas - and in community projects - then volunteer trips are for you! Volunteers tend to have a sense of adventure, and come from a range of different backgrounds and from all over the world. Edward Abbey said 'sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul'. <br />How this vacation makes a difference<br />Winner in the Responsible Tourism Awards 2008, Best Volunteering Organisation category and Highly Commended in 2007, we own our ground operation, which means we have complete control over the sustainability and integrity of our projects and the quality of the experiences we provide. We additionally subsidise our philanthropic objectives through additional funds Winner in the Responsible Tourism Awards 2008, Best Volunteering Organization category and Highly Commended in 2007, we own our ground operation, which means we have complete control over the sustainability and integrity of our projects and the quality of the experiences we provide. We additionally subsidize our philanthropic objectives through additional funds raised by our Charitable Trust to ensure our work has real and lasting tangible benefits to the communities in which we work. <br />Our camps act as a source of local industry and employment. 100% of fresh produce and project materials are sourced from sustainable local suppliers and skilled workers are employed from the surrounding communities to assist volunteers with project work. Group sizes are kept small to reduce any negative impact. Accommodation styles will vary depending on your programme and camp location. However, all permanent accommodation is constructed using locally sourced materials and is in keeping with traditional styles. Temporary camps are designed to create as little impact on the environment and natural surroundings as possible. Your families’ participation on this tour provides a significant contribution to indigenous communities, environment and wildlife in the Taita Hills. Our school development plan has enhanced educational facilities in the area by building school desks, providing clean water for the children, sourcing instructional materials and encouraging environmental conservation. Rukinga Sanctuary is a superb, privately run conservancy offering National and International visitors extraordinary experiences and activities. But more importantly, it has turned thousands of acres back to wildlife conservation from previously degraded and overgrazed landscapes, devoid of wildlife, and offered significant, tangible benefits to the local communities that live along its boundaries. Rukinga Sanctuary and the projects run by Camp Tsavo and Wildlife Works have improved the productivity of the landscape and provided employment and financial support to thousands of families, as well as contributing to the preservation of Kenya’s natural and cultural heritage. In short, our commitment to local people and the environment is not a by-product of our programmes but core to everything we do. All of our projects are developed and co-located in partnership with the local communities to ensure they (and their natural environment) receive tangible and long-lasting benefits.
