by the Harber Family

This experience was brought to life by Albert, from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Albert wanted to create a meaningful travel experience for his family that incorporated fun and relaxation as well as some community development work. He wanted his family to have an amazing time, while making a difference in the lives of the people they met.

Albert shared his vision with us, and gave us the freedom to create something based on our expertise and connections on the ground in Kenya. We created an all inclusive experience for Albert and his family that covered everything they needed from the moment they stepped off the plane in Kenya until the moment they returned home. The result? An unforgettable experience for both the Harber's, and the people they met in Kenya.
