Bore Village Experience with Evelyn & Community

Description

Come and spend a night with us in the Bore Community near Malindi, Kenya. We are part of a community organization working to empower communities along the coast of Kenya.

This experience is a fantastic way of getting a peek into local life and experiencing 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. First, 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 delve into the cliffs and canyons' rich history and traditions. 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 following day, we can go on a short birdwatching tour before eating breakfast and departing to Malindi.

You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and wanting to come back and visit again as soon as possible!

Reviews

We had the best stay at the Bore Forest Community Centre. The personal highlight for myself and my friend was the cliff walk which was both beautiful and our guide gave us fantastic insight as to the ancestral importance of these cliffs. Eve, Alex, and all of our hosts were flexible and accommodating. The food was great, the accommodation was clean and we really enjoyed the early morning birdwatching tour. After experiencing the coast, this is a welcome respite. We were truly immersed in nature and were sad we had to leave when the time came. If we can, we will definitely return. Thank you, Eve and co!"
