THIS EXPERIENCE IS CREATED IN COLLABORATION WITH ACTIONAID (an international NGO active in 45 countries).
Come and spend a night with us in Bore Community. It is a wonderful way of getting a peek into local life and experience Kenyan culture to the fullest.
The location is set in a dramatic landscape of vivid red cliffs and expansive planes as far as the eye can see. We are part of a community organization working to empower communities along the coast of Kenya.
To begin with, you will be picked up from either the bus station or airport in Malindi and taken to our community. The drive will be an experience in itself, as you feel yourself driving further and further away from the beaches of Malindi. Upon arrival, your experience can be as active or relaxed as you wish – if you want to read a book and take in the surroundings, that’s fine. If you’re the type who can’t stay still, we have plenty to keep you busy!
You will have the option to undertake a cliff walk with one of our local villagers. This beautiful walk will take in jaw-dropping views and also delve into the rich history and traditions of the cliffs and canyons. Following this, you will learn how to cook a traditional dinner with one of our local women. Learn to make chapatti’s, ugali, ndengu (lentil curry), mandazi and more. Weather permitting, we will have a bonfire and sundowner in the evening while seeing the sunset.
The next morning, we can go on a short birdwatching tour, before eating breakfast and departing back to Malindi. You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and wanting to come back and visit again as soon as possible!
