What does community based tourism mean ?
This is probably the question that is on your mind right now. Well, community based tourism is traveling to an indigenous location as an outsider and enjoying whatever attractions the destination has in store. In return you will give back to this particular community by paying for services or accommodation. In other words, community based tourism is basically a valuable experience for both the locals and foreigners.
As an organization, we take the humble opportunity to arrange community based trips for anyone and everyone who is interested. We connect the participants with other participants and help them come up with ways on how to best help our different communities.
Some of the community services we encourage are; construction of decent houses for the people in need, construction of churches, schools and health facilities in the rural areas of Kenya, as well as feeding orphans or the sick in orphanages and other different institutions. Participating in the above community services, you will be in the forefront when it comes to interacting with the people of Kenya.
If you are a nature lover, a cultural enthusiast and a traveler, then you are definitely the person/organization that best suits community based tourism. As much as such trips are all about helping the Kenyan community, the participants also have a number of days set aside for them to tour and explore the beautiful land.
The landscapes, the wildlife, and the adventure that the country prides in, is undeniably breath-taking. So be ready to be amused.
Subject to agreement to the above idea of community based trips, you will be actively involved in both economic and social development. You will also help the host family to be more aware of the assets they hold. At the end of the day, when it comes to community based tourism everyone leaves happy and content.
