Good To Know When Touring With One Horizon
Your camera is a must. Your experience creates memories. Capturing them to keep forever and share with others.
What To Wear
Comfortable, covered walking shoes, a hat and a sweater or jacket. All our activities are low impact, but comfortable clothing will help you enjoy the experience even more. Mornings and evenings can be chilly.
Your Experience Of Giving Back And Forging Change
One Horizon involves travellers in our sustainable programs. The experience of standing shoulder to shoulder with Kenyans touches everyone in meaninful and positive ways. You’ll see how our unique approach to travel is solving poverty and play your own personal role in forging change. Your tour fees also helps fund our programs. As well as visiting, participating and connecting this is another way you are helping to ensure sustainable improvement in people’s lives.
Your Guides & Interpreters
Some of the Kenyans you’ll meet converse in Swahili, but we always find communication easy and our guides are with you every step of the way if you need interpretation. All our guides are fluent in English, Swahili and other Kenyan languages. We can organise French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese or sign language interpreters by request.
We strongly advise you to always drink from bottled water to ensure your wellness. Please do not administer first aid if any of the Kenyans you meet in our communities require medical assistance – our staff will apply the required first aid. If you require medications, please ensure you bring them with you on each of our journeys as our centres are some distance from good medical options and we may not be able to respond immediately.
All our centres are in secured, patrolled grounds and our experienced One Horizon staff are always with you. We are all either Kenyans or ex-pats so we have our fingers on the pulse of Kenya and we vary our tours if we envisage potential problems due to election campaigning or other situations. Mostly, we’re all mums and dads so we’ll never put you, or ourselves, at risk. We recommend all travellers refer to their Government’s travel requirements when visiting Africa.
Stay In Touch
We’ll give you our contact details and you’re welcome to contact us after you leave us to journey to other destinations in Kenya. We’re only a phone call away to step in and help out should you need it and, it’s our pleasure to do so. After all, you are now part of the One Horizon family. After you’ve returned home, we’ll send you regular email updates about the Kenyans you met and how their lives are changing for the better – thanks to travellers like you.
