Volunteer with a Community Project

Safaris can be life-changing in more ways than one. While wildlife takes center stage for most safari-goers, clients with Natural Habitat Safaris discover that the most rewarding travel happens when you also immerse yourself in a destination, its people and their culture. So often, it's the individuals you meet and the challenges and accomplishments faced by community members that stay with you most powerfully. Such interactions foster understanding, and with that comes the inspiration to make a difference to a person, a school or a community. Even the smallest contribution helps. With that in mind, we offer you the opportunity to volunteer with one of the three main community-focused projects we support:

Mpopongi Primary School 
We believe strongly that education promotes empowerment. That’s why Natural Habitat Safaris, in partnership with Leleshwa Camp, has chosen to support Mpopongi Primary School on the Siana Conservancy in the Maasai Mara. Through this association that began in 2007, we not only support the students directly, but we are able to benefit the wider community through initiatives that transform lives. Volunteers may assist teachers, work with school children, or help with maintenance at the school. 

The Nest
Since 1994 The Nest has been providing care for children whose mothers are imprisoned. In keeping with the Charleson family’s long tradition of supporting this vital outreach in Limuru, Kenya, Natural Habitat Safaris has committed since 2008 to providing The Nest with financial support to make a difference in the lives of the children and their mothers. Our clients also have the opportunity to extend their experience in Africa by volunteering at The Nest for a day or several, helping the staff provide loving care for the children in residence.

Polycom Development Project
Polycom's multifaceted outreach is based in Nairobi's Kibera community, the largest slum in Kenya. Polycom works to promote self-appreciation and self-worth among adolescent girls, empowering women to fight injustices against them and to live their lives with a positive focus. A primary focus is addressing sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls. NHS' Director of Sales and Marketing, Charlotte Campbell-Stephen, works very closely with Polycom. She helps place our clients, according to their interests and skills and the community's needs, in various volunteer capacities including health, sanitation, education and sports.
