Kenyan Kids on Safari

Governors’ Camp Collection supports the work of Kenyan Kids on Safari (KKOS). KKOS provides Kenyan children with the opportunity to join tourists, medical volunteers and others, while on safari and experience the wonder and uniqueness of their local wild environments. When local children participate in Kenya's renowned wildlife viewing, camping and other life skills, it enhances each child's personal development and self esteem. Some will become the future leaders determining the fate of Kenyan Wildlife reserves for the world. Governors’ Camp has participated in this program by taking children from our surrounding community schools on game drives in the Masai Mara National Reserve, to introduce them to wildlife of the area and help foster a special relationship between the children and their environment. All children are given a camera to use for the game drive and our drivers and guides take time to explain animal behaviour and local ecology to the children.  After the drive the children’s best photos are turned into a collage for them to take home
