Without a source of fuel, many families resort to foraging for firewood. And with Kenya’s population doubling every 20 years, the impact on forests has been devastating. Once well forested, the impact on wildlife has also meant the loss of habitat and greater erosion.

And its an experience which stirs the emotions and leads to greater understanding about life and what’s important. A fascinating and intimate insight that few travelers ever get to experience.
What does Daniel, our Masai host, have in common with Robert Redford the Hollywood legend? Well more than you might think.

Before the terms of Responsible and Sustainable Tourism became known One Horizon was doing its humanitarian work in Kenya for years before this. To experience unique, inspirational and incredible times in Kenya, please go to www.onehorizon.net for more information on the tours.
One Horizon holidays are as far removed from a ‘tour bus’ experience. And we see the impact on both travelers and our communities every day. Our work is with Kenyans who have had a very hard time of it. Our projects are about hope and the future and that is what encourages our guests want to be part of. A guests experience is about cultural immersion in communities.
