Information about group safaris in Kenya

When I was a boy growing with disabilities in a special school. Port Reitz school we used to have lots of visitors coming to see children with disabilities in Mombasa.  Most of them were local from the Indian community in Kenya and some were friends who came all the way from the United States of America and the United Kingdom, Sir John Leman high school. These visitors came for wildlife safari and also to support children with disabilities as part of their charity or exchange programmes. I came to know that they were doing a group safaris in Kenya.

Shared costs

Group safaris are cheap as compared with individual safaris which are sometimes considered for high profile or celebrities safaris. In a group safari, a group will share the cost of travelling, a van can be used by more than two individuals but less than eight pedestrians. This will be cheap. The same people could have hired the eight vans for the same safari.

When you are on a group safari, you have the advantage of doing something which other members are not doing. For example, you might be on a game drive and then Suddenly you see a nice curio in town, then you remember one of your friends at home. You decide to buy them a gift. You might decide to go shopping while others are busy doing wildlife. In a group safari, you can decide to do something else when the group is doing other activities. In the above picture, the tourist decided to visit a school.

Power of cooperation

Where you are in a group safari you can achieve more than an individual doing solo travel, group safari is more of sharing. I remember I had a friend of mine who had been travelling from Germany to Rwanda every year when he was on holiday. Before having a game drive he would travel to Rwanda to help orphaned children. One day he and his team wanted to build a dormitory for the children. He and his team send the building materials through the port of Mombasa before they arrived in Rwanda. Before they did a game drive they travelled to Rwanda and build the dormitory for the orphaned children.
