At Chalo Africa, we believe in conservation-minded eco-tourism, and we want to work with and support initiatives on the ground that truly make a difference. That’s why we’ve partnered with Kempinski Hotels and Asilia Africa to bring you this incredible Kenyan safari with a philanthropic twist. Not only will you enjoy 6 nights of luxury and adventure in Nairobi and the Masai Mara area, but ALL of the proceeds from your trip will go directly to the benefit of the African Wildlife Conservation Fund. A win-win situation!
Your Kenyan Safari
Begin your trip with 1 night’s stay at the gorgeous Villa Rosa Kempinski in Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. From there, travel onwards to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, where you will spend 2 nights absorbing the elegance and excitement of Olare Mara Kempinski’s tented camp experience.
Then hop over to the Naboisho Conservancy, adjacent to the Masai Mara, and relax for 3 nights at Asilia’s Encounter Mara camp, where you can spot all kinds of wildlife right from your doorstep.
At both camps you will be able to venture out on game drives, dine like royalty, and fall asleep to the sounds of the Kenyan savannah—all for a price of only USD 4,250 per person.
Supporting Africa’s Future
The African Wildlife Conservation Fund (AWCF) is a Zimbabwean based, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of many native species—most notably the beautiful and endangered African wild dog. AWCF began with the efforts of a few dedicated people striving to continue the work of the Lowveld Wild Dog Project (1996) which monitored, safeguarded, and strengthened a vulnerable population of just 36 wild dogs in Savé Valley Conservancy.
Here AWCF have successfully built up, monitored, and conserved a high-density population of African wild dogs; in 2004 they were at one of the highest densities recorded globally. They have since expanded their work to other key protected areas within the Zimbabwean Lowveld. Zimbabwe is one of only eight countries left in Africa supporting viable populations of wild dogs, and the Zimbabwean Lowveld (including Savé Valley Conservancy) supports the largest population in the country! The team work to
The team works to monitor wild dog populations, assist anti-poaching units to stop illegal hunting for bush meat (snares are the primary threat to wild dogs), educate and collaborate with the local communities (especially with children in rural schools), and engage with communities and governments to find balanced solutions to human-wildlife conflict. The AWCF is doing truly incredible and critical work in southern Africa, and we at Chalo Africa are both delighted and humbled to be able to do what we can to support them.
