Day 1 - Maasai Mara

Meet your ME to WE representative and transfer to Bogani. Bogani offers a completely different experience to all of Kenya's safari camps and it provides a genuine opportunity to get involved.

Bogani is located to the north of the Maasai Mara, surrounded by open countryside and local villages. There are 5 large family cottages and 18 safari tents, all surrounded by open countryside. The camp's traditional safari tents are spread over a large area and have stone flooring and fully screened doors and windows. They’re well furnished using local fabrics and traditional Kenyan decor. Each tent has comfortable twin or double beds, a private veranda with comfortable chairs, plenty of storage space, standing fans, electrical sockets and a safe. All tents are en suite, with hot running water, basins and flush toilets.

Enjoy lunch before your orientation and visit to the community school. In the evening enjoy dinner with a ME to WE feature speaker. Taste local dishes and enjoy Western favorites, prepared fresh daily using local ingredients.

Learn about our charity partner’s sustainable development program, which includes five key pillars to break the cycle of poverty and achieve long-term community development: quality primary education, health care services, alternative income projects, safe, clean drinking water and sanitation, and agriculture and food security. Experience a guided walking tour of the primary school in Enelerai community where you’ll see the difference between an old school structure and a new working school built by our charity partner.

At the end of the day it is time to retire to your cottage or tent, a serene place to relax and reflect after an invigorating day of volunteering.
