Africa Travel Tips!

Planning a trip to Africa? It might be time to brush up on responsible travel tips.  Anouk Zijlma, who writes for About.com, just sent out an email with some great Africa travel tips!

Here are some important things to remember when touring abroad:

  • Be sure you’re up-to-date on vaccinations and immunizations.  Pay attention to where you’ll be traveling and consult your doctor before you leave, as there may be other precautions you should take. 
  • Stay in touch with your loved ones by renting a local cell phone or contacting your current cell phone company about an international calling plan, and don’t forget to bring an adapter for your charger!
  • Be sure to check with your bank ahead of time and let them know you’ll be traveling.  Ask about the best ways to withdraw money from the ATM and convert currencies, and always ask about any hidden fees you might be charged.  Always carry some cash on you while traveling, but be safe by keeping it hidden in a money belt under your clothes.

Above all, be safe and have fun on your adventures.  Enjoy your travels!

Thanks to Anouk Zijlma for the inspiration for this blog!

Safari and Cultural Exchange Headed to Kenya January, 2013!

The "Just One Person" trip to Kenya was such a success back in March that we are going to do it again: January 12—January 26, 2013. This safari and cultural exchange is going to be a fun, safe and authentic trip to Kenya. Just One Person, an organization that educates African girls, fights poverty and promotes gender equality, is combining a safari with an opportunity to learn about real issues facing women in rural Kenya today.

On this trip, we will be working with the Kenyan Ministry of Health, partnering with a village clinic to offer badly needed basic health care services to women and children in rural Kenya.

 

Itinerary on-the-ground in Kenya


Sightseeing in Nairobi:

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust- Elephant orphanage that rescues orphaned baby elephants and rhinos, so that they can return to the wild when grown. The DSWT also manages anti-poaching teams, mobile veterinary units and community outreach programs.
Kazuri Women’s Bead Project- A creative pottery and bead factory that provides employment for nearly 100 women.
The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife/Giraffe Center- The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W. Kenya) also known as the Giraffe Centre is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, which was founded by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville in 1979. This was in a bid to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, which had lost its natural habitat in Western Kenya to agriculture and there were only 130 left in the wild.
The Karen Blixen House and Museum- Danish author Karen Blixen, best known for penning the book Out of Africa, lived in this house on the outskirts of Nairobi that has now been turned into a museum in her honor. Blixen lived here from 1914 to 1931 and ran a coffee plantation on the site. Originally owned by the Danish government, the house was donated to Kenya to celebrate the country's independence. The government then reconstructed the house in an attempt to preserve it the way it was when Blixen lived there.

Using Biogas to Power African Homes

Last week, we published a blog post on Marieme Jamme's Top 50 Africans of the Year. One of those was Dominic Wanjihia, who uses biogas to power African homes. The CEO of Biogas International, Dominic designed a sustainable system that uses a flexible incubator and animal dung to produce sustainable gas energy. Here is a video of Dominic explaining his process. Enjoy!
