My African adventure started in 1992 with a 'Once in a Lifetime' holiday, after this first holiday I fell in love with Kenya, the people, the magical safari parks and animals, I have returned to Kenya every year since, and sometimes twice a year.
My African adventure started in 1992 with a Once in a Lifetime holiday, after this first holiday I fell in love with Kenya, the people, the magical safari parks and animals, I have returned to Kenya every year since, and sometimes twice a year.
My enthusiasm continued and when I was approached a few years ago by a well known African safari company asking if I would be interested in joining them and operating a UK agency selling safaris through the internet I decided promoting Kenya would be so exciting. I decided to accept the offer of the Directors of WT Safaris and together we are now a strong, successful team and work very hard to guarantee our clients receive personal attention in both the UK and when they arrive in Kenya.
Kenyan Travel is based in Northumberland, and arranged safaris in Kenya for many years, and during that time developed a deep passion for Africa. I welcome clients to call and chat over their ideas and offer personal attention and immediate contact by telephone to clients when they are deciding which safari or lodge they should choose. Kenyan Travel would like to share their experiences, and take you into the 'true Africa' on one of our magical safaris.
Life in Kenya is very hard and my wish was to give something back, this was made possible when I sponsored an African boy called Simon, he was only 2 years old and in a nursery school when I started to sponsor him, he is now 16 years old, and a very bright boy. Last year his exam results were excellent, both Simon and his parents were delighted when he was invited to attend an high profile boys boarding school in Voi Town, he is due to leave next year and would like to attend a university he is interested in training to be an engineer, of course the cost is going to be the biggest problem.
This year has been a very busy year, finding sponsor money to help Simons father who had an accident in the safari bus he was driving, his leg was badly injured and without surgery costing 1600 he would have lost his leg. Anyway a happy outcome we managed to find the cash, two schools held uniform free days to raise cash and in return I sponsored an elephant for both schools.
I also sponsor an elephant called Emsaya, she was rescued last year when I was in Kenya and taken to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Tsavo national park, she was so tiny her mother had been killed by poachers, but with the careful attention of the keepers she survived and hopefully when I return later this year I will see her again.
Kenyan Travel are excited to announce their plans for 2013 we are going to offer Wedding packages giving our clients personal attention, the venue Sunset Villas (pictures on my website www.kenyantravel.co.uk) and to end their very special wedding a honeymoon safari taking them into the wonderful world of wild animals.
Diani Beach also boasts an excellent golf course, golf packages from one week can also be arranged.
