If you’re lucky, you might even get a kiss from Ed the giraffe. After lunch, be inspired by Tommy Nyawir and the heart-warming Mirror of Hope, a community-based organization empowering vulnerable children living in Africa’s largest slum by keeping them in school.
Today, Gena will lead a mindful meditation in preparation for a day exploring the sights and sounds of Africa’s largest slum. Visit the home of your sponsor student, meet their family, and feast on a delicious Kenyan lunch that you’ll learn to cook.

Hello Masai Mara! One of Africa’s best safari destinations, the Mara is home to Africa’s most exotic safari animals. It is also home to the greatest show on earth, the Great Migration, a natural spectacle like no other. After your first exciting safari drive, head towards the secluded luxury wildlife camp, arriving in time for a warm shower and relaxing evening around the open fire.
Up early, begin your search for Africa’s greatest predators, who are also on the hunt for a nutritious wildebeest breakfast. You can also expect to see many of the other exotic African animals today and if you are lucky, you might even spot a rhino. With so much morning excitement, your body will be craving a deep stretch, a little meditation, and a thorough reconnection. If only you had a yoga instructor; hello Gena!
Each year a million wildebeest brave the Mara River’s crocodile-infested waters in their search for greener grass. This is the greatest natural spectacle on earth and although it is dependent on annual timing, this region offers fantastic wildlife viewing all-year-around. In the afternoon, return for yoga and another relaxing evening swapping stories around the open fire.
Today, search for the Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhino). While it is common to see some of these animals, finding all five can be a challenge so make sure you bring your binos and a keen pair of eyes. After lunch, Gena will lead another yoga or meditation session before you enjoy your final night in the magical Masai Mara.
After a final morning game drive, make your way back to the bright lights of Nairobi. This will be your final night in Africa and the perfect occasion to celebrate with new friends who have shared in this unforgettable, enriching, and rejuvenating journey.
Spend the day packing, relaxing, or meditating with Gena before boarding your flight to Kigali, Rwanda to begin your gorilla adventure.
Between April 7 and July 15, 1994, 1 million Tutsis lost their lives in one of the worst genocides in history. This morning is your chance to learn from this tragedy and to pay your respects to those who lost their lives. Afternoon transfer to Mutanda Lake Resort, Uganda.
Mountain gorillas live in forests at elevations of 2,000 to 4,000 meters.

Today is your chance to trek with one of the most unique animals on the planet.
Today is your chance to make your own adventure. Swin in Mutanda Lake, trek with golden monkeys, spend another day with the gorillas, practice yoga with Gena, or simply relax with a bottle of red.
