'Glenys went away talking about animals and came home talking about the people'. We ended (our trip to Africa) on a high by spending a day in Nairobi with this tour operator. I recommend this tour as a truly rewarding experience. The money paid buys pigs for women to start a pig-breeding and selling business, and thus support their families. We spent time with 2 beautiful grandmas, cooking chapatis together for lunch then seeing their home, vegetable garden and pigpens. Hearing their life stories brought tears to our eyes, but they have truly come a long way. Inspirational! Everyone we met was cheerful, friendly and happy to do anything for us. Their happiness was contagious!"
One Horizon's sustainable programs are the foundation of its work. It established its tour division so that it could extend its programs further into grassroots Kenyan communities. And recently One Horizon was honored by the Kenyan Tourist Board (KTB) by having its tours included in its Signature Experience Collection for 2020-21. This prestigious award recognizes our work in responsible tourism and in redefining what a holiday is all about.
Safari is the Swahili word for journey and that’s what One Horizon holidays are — incredible journeys. We take you beyond our famous wildlife parks to the heartbeat of Kenya — the communities and villages that are home to our extraordinary people. One Horizon tours are unique opportunities to truly immerse yourself in Kenyan lives and culture. Our tour experiences stir deep emotions as they conjure a different sort of holiday magic as you laugh, dance and share life experiences with the amazing Kenyans you’ll meet. Some of their stories will touch your heart, but all will inspire you. Simply by traveling with One Horizon you are helping to change Kenyan lives; and, just maybe your life will change too!
It’s this experience of becoming involved in Kenyan life that makes our experiences unique. One Horizon works hard on sustainable programs and to make them a success. But it is a joint effort and we are increasingly recognized for the positive impact we have both in a social, economic and environmental context. And by opening ourselves up to the involvement of travelers we have simply marshaled those that share our passion and empathy. Our tours cater for all and include signature 1 day events to up to 7 days.
