These Kenya walking safaris support a range of conservation and community initiatives across the Laikipia plateau. Our longest standing project is the Leroghi Mountains Conservation Fund, set up in November 2002 by our company together with our local Kenyan operational partners, under the auspices of the UK conservation organization, the Wilderness Foundation.
Our aim is to develop and promote a series of simple local community-based conservation and development projects in association with our trekking safaris. Like many pristine forested mountain ranges in Kenya, the Leroghi Mountains are under threat. Small-scale environmental education and reforestation projects in association with the local Samburu communities involve the local young people and primary school children. These are financially supported by a contribution made by us on behalf of every client who joins one of our a trekking safaris and by the generous additional contributions made by several of our recent clients.
Our ethos is to "leave only footprints" on our trekking safaris and we hope that through our joint efforts with the local Samburu communities, these unique forested mountains will remain for the benefit of future generations of Samburu children and trekking visitors alike.
