Conservation at their Core - Kenya
Travel with purpose through the diverse landscapes and cultures of Kenya, staying at properties that directly contribute to conservation, community, culture and commerce.
Everything hangs in the balance; our balance is between the 4Cs: conservation, community, culture and commerce. This journey starts with The Long Run, a sustainable travel movement, helping business, nature and people, work together for a better future. The three destinations you’ll be hosted at are all members of The Long Run, and continuously strive to excel in conserving nature and improve the wellbeing of the communities they belong to.
Through this trip we will take you through three thriving ecosystems and their biodiversity, and the conservation work that is safeguarding this biodiversity. You’ll be captivated by the contrasting cultures of Kenya, learning to celebrate cultural diversity and commonality; nurturing understanding and making life-long connections. All in the backdrop of Kenya’s vast rolling plains, adventurous and captivating activities and thrilling wilderness and wildlife encounters.
Some highlights of this unique sustainable safari will be; sharing stories and dancing with Maasai warriors by the campfire; meeting the all-female ranger teams in Laikipia and the Masai Mara; hopefully seeing the Big Five; watching the Segera bloodhounds’ team demonstrate their vital role of tracking for conservation; going on a rhino-tracking expedition; and much much more.
Through this trip we are working to help the travel industry take responsibility, and to help to protect wildlife and wild spaces that we all want to enjoy.
