Footsteps in Africa Fully Booked

We will invite you on this special safari in Kenya,

It`s not expensive -It`s priceless

The African people are a happy people and doing a safari you will see that they are ready to welcome you to their country and culture. Tourism is one of the best means of export in Africa, particularly for the poor people serving you along your Safari. This is a Meaningful Safari and a safari that makes sense. 


Meaningful safari – a different kind of safari! You will experience the traditional safari, driving through the national park of this magnificent country and seeing the range of animals the nature has to offer.


Meaningful part of this safari includes getting close to the real people who live in Africa; buying fabrics in large outdoor markets, cooking traditional dishes with natives, visiting street children where they live in the slums and see how organizations operate to help them.
