Camp Kenya Muhaka 2 Week

You won’t believe what can be achieved during your two weeks in Kenya. Settle in to your new African home, Camp Muhaka is a charming bush camp set within a small rural community on the lower slopes of the Shimba Hills. This beautiful camp sits in the middle of a forest, rich in palm and mango trees that provide cooling shade from the heat of the sun, where monkeys and bush babies inquisitively watch you from the canopy. Smiles and singing will greet you at the local schools where you’ll get stuck into improving school infrastructure, you certainly won’t be short of new friends.
