The second part of our trip was the village experience that was also organised by T4P and we met the most loving family and spent the entire day with them. We can not recommend T4P more for purpose-led trips that truly provide the best travel experience.

So glad I got to experience life in the village thanks to T4P, the activities were incredibly fun and I even managed to climb a coconut tree by the end!

Really enjoyed this trip curated by Travel4Purpose. Born and bred in Kenya, but I rarely travel locally in a sustainable manner, connecting with local communities. This was an amazing opportunity to do so, particularly when we stayed with a lovely local family in an eco-camp.
