Discovery Trip

Join us for this unique opportunity to accompany Global Angels Founder Molly Bedingfield to our Tsavo Project in Kenya. You will get a first hand view of one of the sustainable communities and life-changing initiatives we are developing. You’ll learn about our long term strategies and solutions to empower the local community in this model project.

You will be invited to help us work on developing long term rain water catchments and storage, building a small factory and mill, work in our shade houses and organic farm. You will visit the Tumaini women in their homes and work alongside them in the project.

One of your highlights will be to meet Mama Mercy, community leader and winner of the 2013 Global Angels Inspirational Angel Award. She is our Angel on the ground, nurturing leadership, community empowerment and small business development for large numbers of local women.

As you reflect around the campfire on the work you have been involved in during the day, you will be encouraged to bring your insights and ideas to the table. The whole experience also lends itself perfectly to transformational personal development.

Our Home Base

Our home base gives you the chance to experience life in the real African wilderness but in a protected secure compound surrounded by the picturesque Marungu Hills that lie close to the world famous Tsavo National Parks, this area is famed for its wildlife and providing a safe haven for elephants, lions, cheetahs and other amazing animals.

This is Africa and working closely to a community that is very disadvantaged. Each trip we choose to stay in a nearby lodge and safari campsite hat has a taste of safari and luxury in comparison to those around us but is suitably not lavish.

The lodge has 4 ensuite twin or double bedrooms. We also have two traditional bandas – each has two double or twin rooms with a shared bathroom.

We share the main lodge dining and lounge facilities and outside fireplace.

Day To Day Itinerary

(the order of these days is subject to change and there may also be other activities for people to take part in)
We are flying on the British Airways flight from London on the first. You will arrive into Nairobi airport where you will transferred to your hotel, a short drive from the airport for a good nights sleep ready for an early wake, breakfast and leave together with the group for Tsavo.
Please note that accommodation and food is at your own expense.

You will leave early in the morning to take the train from Nairobi to Voi where you will be picked up by your driver followed by an hour drive to your home for the week, for a late lunch.

Set away in the middle of the Tsavo Conservancy we will be based in a beautiful and wild place, the real African bush. Listening out at night around the fire pit you will probably hear lions call, owls hoot or hyenas whoop.

The main lodge is built with natural materials and the dining area of the house is completely open to the garden but don’t worry the house is protected by a fence to keep the wildlife out.

Our home also includes a full kitchen (with Chef taking care of our meals), an upstairs lounge, en suite shared bedrooms and a large garden with bar and fire pit.

Our accommodation also includes two “bandas” in the surrounding grounds. Each banda has two twin bedrooms with a shared in bedrooms each.

Today you will get a chance to meet the locals, learn about the issues facing the community along with strategy and solutions Global Angels is leading in the area.

You will visit water pans in the valley, women and children collecting water alongside farmers watering their cows and goats. You will visit our organic farm with shade houses, rain water harvesting and storage, our community centre and water kiosks providing drinking water to the locals.

We hope you will be inspired by our vision to transform the whole valley over the next 5 years reaching 14-20,000 people.

Hopefully you will feel our heart for these people and love them like we do 🙂

Depending on the seasonal requirements of the organic farm or current building projects you will be working on a variety of activities such as helping build a new shade house or making grow bags, planting cops, planting a live fence around the property, painting, building any of the buildings we have planned for the year, brick making or even help build a concrete water tank.
