  • Description

    Description

    Help set up our family farm at the foot of Mount Kenya. We are located in-between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare ranges in the Northern part of Kenya. Our aim is to set up a simple eco-friendly and self sustaining farm incorporating a range of animals: rabbits, chicken, goats etc and some vegetable farming. The project also includes construction of basic farm houses and other structures.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will get a full cultural immersion in the Northern Kenya country-side, bordering the magnificent Mt Kenya and Aberdare ranges. There will be lots of opportunities to interact with the local communities in the little towns and villages around the farm as well as participate in preparing and indulging in the local cuisine and day to day activities.

    What else ...

    The second highest mountain in Africa: Mount Kenya is only a few miles away from the farm. Visitors can enjoy hikes up the mountain in their free time and the more adventurous can attempt to reach the peak. There are also lots of game ranches and wildlife conservancies in the vicinity that one can explore.
