10 Nights in Kenya on a Women-Only Expedition – Only $6,959 per person

Discover Kenya’s vibrant culture on this women-only adventure

Make your way through the heart of East Africa and meet local Kenyan women from all walks of life, who will share their stories and triumphs in the struggle for gender equality. Hear inspiring stories from an all-female crew including your ocal leader and driver, Becky, who was the very first female overland truck driver in East Africa, and meet a range of local female entrepreneurs, park rangers and Samburu and Maasai villagers. Beginning and ending in Nairobi, you’ll visit a bead making workshop, cook chapati with grandmas, go on safaris in the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve, and meet a local women’s-only support group striving to improve gender equality.

An expedition trip and completely new to MTA’s range this year, this is the kind of trip that puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’. Despite rigorous planning and research, new itineraries can sometimes throw some unexpected surprises the group’s way, so this itinerary is only for those who have a sense of adventure, thrive on the unexpected and don’t mind going with the flow.

Guests will travel in purpose-built overland vehicles that allow for excellent game viewing and photo opportunities. The drive days can be long and bumpy, and there will be some early starts to make the most of the spectacular sunrises in this beautiful land and to beat the morning traffic on drive days.
