The conservation safari, which is being organised in March 2019 by The Safari & Conservation Company, is in response to demand from guests from across the world who are looking to do more than just ‘go on holiday’, but instead learn and act on the problems that are facing wildlife in the area.

The itinerary has been arranged and organised by The Safari & Conservation Company, and the safari will be led and guided by Kip Ole Polos, one of Kenya’s most respected authorities on the local area and an Il Ngwesi Community Elder. Guided by Kip, guests will visit his home and his lands, as well as meet other conservationist working to promote peace and stability to landscapes and wildlife in Kenya.
