Drakensburg Charity Challenge
Drakensburg Charity Challenge

The Drakensberg Mountains form a dramatic backdrop and immortal witness to the many battles that were fought within its shadows. This enormous barrier between the hinterland and the coast served as a hiding place to the Boers, the British and the Zulu’s and was a challenge to those who tried to pass. We will follow in the footsteps of history, conquer that challenges we face and unlock the door to the beauty that so many have appreciated before us.

Kenya Family 10 Day Program
Kenya Family 10 Day Program

We try and design our itineraries around things that we enjoy. We have created a 10 day experience that gives your family the chance to work and play together in an extraordinary environment, rich in culture and new experiences. We have kept this itinerary uncomplicated as we also have families and understand that sometimes a timetable is the last thing you need. We also feel that often the really rewarding experiences are the simple moments where you just get time together, as a family, away from it all. The activities we have chosen are both educational and exciting and will enable you and your family to immerse in the culture of Kenya, with opportunities to view culture and wildlife. Our camp has a total of 10 beds and this trip is suitable for children over the age of 8 and adults of all ages (i.e. you can bring Grandma if you like!).

There is little that can compete with the "Flight of the Fish Eagle" air safari - soaring over a bay where the diversity of species rivals Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Or floating past pods of hippo in a canoe or river boat. Scuba diving, snorkelling and deep-sea fishing are just a hop away. And in the evenings, immerse yourself in the ancient culture of Southern Africa's warrior tribe, the Zulu.
