Itinerary
This trip is a life-changing experience! It begins at a local church in Nairobi, Kenya serving community schools, orphanages, and those in need. You then travel to the Masai Mara for an unforgettable expedition in one of the most spectacular locations in Africa. Our trip is a great way to combine light mission work with a world-class safari.

Kimbo PEFA Church is a 5000-member Gospel Church located in Kimbo, a village on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya's capital city. The church is fully committed to community outreach. One of the greatest projects that the Lord has allowed the church to accomplish is the Library Project. The project is aimed at reaching the young generation in the community and providing them with a safe place to study. The church works with local schools, orphanages, hosts medical clinics, and provides clean water to the village. There are many opportunities to serve at Kimbo.

The Masai Mara is the Land of Big Cat Diary and Disney’s African Cats. The Masai Mara is at the top of most people’s safari wish lists. It’s the location of the ’Great Migration’--one of the natural wonders of the world. The Masai Mara is a gloriously beautiful, wildlife-rich savannah landscape, often described by biologists as one of the last remaining places free of modern human meddling. It is also a region where traditionally dressed Masai still herd their cattle and goats in a lifestyle that hasn’t changed much since they first arrived centuries ago. Together with the Serengeti National Park, the Masai Mara forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible and most spectacular eco-systems and possibly the world’s top safari viewing eco-system.
