An amazing experience was the safari in the Massai Mara and my trip to the Hell's Gate National Park. I would recommend every future volunteer to go there. .
Learning some Swahili, getting deep into Kenya with people, using transport, eating and living like locals is the highlight of my trip.
I was working in an orphanage in Nairobi with Volunteering Solutions. It was an incredible experience and you are made to feel incredibly welcome by the staff. .
