It's Flamingo season! The beauty is remarkable. It's however worthwhile to note that the lakes along the floor of the Great Rift Valley are swelling and reclaiming their banks, thus we all need to take precaution when adventuring along the shores so as not to destroy the young habitat that is emerging as a result of the flooding.
Hike Mt. Kenya for the Girl Initiative was a success. We thank all the hikers and partners who came through because through them we were able to donate menstrual cups and play an integral part in female empowerment.
Mt. Le Satima
Being the 3rd highest peak in Kenya at 4001mASL, this was an enjoyable, yet formidable bog-filled hiking experience.
Our hikes up to point Longonot are always memorable no matter what group we have.
This relaxing family retreat in the magnificent Northern Aberdare National Park was perfect! Clear skies, a hike in the indigenous forest, buffalo viewing, and a visit to the waterfalls were all that was needed for their rejuvenation.
Our first Adventure Therapy intro training was a success! We had 30 participants join us, all from different organizations that deal with positively impacting youth in the outdoors.
A fun-filled afternoon at Destiny Chapel with youth from the South-B area doing team challenges Urbanite Camps style. Pumped was an understatement!
2 days with this energetic group of church youth leaders was definitely memorable. The zeal and wisdom they possess are beyond their years and we loved interacting with them.
Being one with nature does not mean having to jump off the highest point or dive to the deepest depths. Slow, meditative saunters in nature-filled spaces help us to connect with ourselves and to practice mindfulness-a skill lost on many in the hustle and bustle of the city.
Can you handle heights and speed?
Our star for the day was this adventurous 10 year old who took every challenge head-on and did everything twice-just to show that you can conquer your fears and enjoy the victory!
Our dream-team of 5-10 yr olds conquered all 7 hills and hiked from end to end (Ngong gate to Corner Baridi gate) like real troopers!
Is Menengai a Crater or Caldera? Bet you didn't know this: Craters are formed by the outward explosion of rocks and other materials from a volcano. Calderas are formed by the inward collapse of a volcano. We enjoyed the hikes, caving and climbing there-looking forward to more visits!
With the Gatango waterfall as our abseil destination, we hiked through Southern Aberdare National Park with our gear at hand. This day-long activity provided great tracks, amazing views, and a taste of the most refreshing water straight from the top.
Continuing our partnership with Joy Divine Children's Org., we did a week-long street child rehabilitation program with 80% success rate of kids choosing to leave the streets, get enrolled in school, and reunite with their families!
This year's leadership training for KTTC student leaders focused on the progression from intentional self-growth to growing others by utilizing their leadership capacity in serving the student body.
