[ACSP2]: Kenya Eco-Safari: Educational Study Tour (15 Days)
Our student and school trips offer valuable learning experiences and lots of fun through various learning activities. In Kenya, education tourism or educational safaris refers to 'any tour programme in which participants travel to a location as a group with the primary purpose of engaging in a learning experience directly related to the location'. It is comprised of several sub-learning types including ecotourism, heritage tourism,cultural tourism, agro-tourism, and student / study exchanges between educational institutions. The main objective of this eco-safari is to expose students to the beauty of Africa - the adventure, the cultures, the diverse ecosystems and to give them an opportunity to be happy with only a few of the comforts of the normal western living.

The second purpose of the educational trip is to expose foreign students to new ecological setups, cultures and ecosystems as well as take students back to the cradle of humanity - not just to civilizations past, but to where humanity began, the cradle of mankind. By being involved in this particular trip, the students will not only view the people and lifestyles of one of the most vibrant countries in Africa, they will also have the chance to view some of the most endangered ecosystems in the world and learn about measures taken by the authorities to contain this trend. This trip is a true blend of people and nature. Learn More >

Day 03: Day Visits - Lake Magadi
Lake Magadi is located in the southern Kenya. This 104 sq. km soda lake is completely surrounded by vast natural salt flats. These sweltering hot plains prevent animals from reaching the alkaline lake at its center. For this reason, thousands of flamingo descend on the lake each year to nest on elevated mud mounds at the lake's edge safe from any potential predators. Freshwater springs at the Lake's shore attract a host of other birds. A journey to Magadi is like to enter another world. The baking salt plains stretch into horizons of shimmering heat haze, while the shallow lake heaves with the pink waves of nesting flamingo. The other worldly atmosphere is compounded by the intense heat and the isolation. A guided tour to Magadi Soda company one of the largest producer of Soda Ash in Africa is also conducted.
