Go on a safari during your volunteer experience in Kenya

Have you ever wanted to go on a safari and discover how animals in the African savannah live in the wild? Now is your chance; take advantage of being in the ideal country to do so. Kenya is one of the best-known destinations for safaris, thanks to the vast array of animal species it harbors. Depending on the location and the natural park where this adventure takes place, you’ll see different animals.

Some of the places where you can go on a safari include the Samburu National Reserve, which comprises three parks: Laikipia, Shaba, and Buffalo Spring. This reserve is located in central Kenya, and you can observe many animals there. It’s quite common to see leopards and elephants, although you can also spot lions, cheetahs, buffaloes, giraffes, and zebras. In the river, there are also large crocodiles, along with many species of birds such as storks.

Another well-known national park where the “big 5” live is the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The animals that make up the “big 5” list are lions, buffalo, elephants, rhinoceroses, and leopards. But you won’t only see these species; you can also observe giraffes, crocodiles, cheetahs, and zebras, among other native species. One of the most well-known and spectacular phenomena is the migration season, during which you can see zebras and wildebeests migrating from the Serengeti National Park to this park.

There’s also Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for the thousands of flamingos that inhabit it, although the number of individuals of this species has decreased considerably due to climate change.

Nevertheless, you can still see many wild animals, such as the white and black rhinoceroses; the latter is endangered, and this park is one of the few places where you can see them. You can also observe gazelles, buffaloes, zebras, impalas, baboons, and giraffes living in their natural habitat.

When is the best time to go on a safari?

The high season is from January to March and from June to September. During this period, it’s a good time because the temperature is high and warm, and you’ll be able to see many animals since the vegetation is less dense. Between March and May is the rainy season, so it’s not the best time because the animals are more scattered, although there are far fewer tourists.

Between October and December, it may rain occasionally, but it’s the perfect time to see many species of birds, as it’s the arrival of migratory birds. And in October, it’s the migration of wildebeests and zebras from northern Tanzania to Maasai Mara. It’s an incredible spectacle as hundreds of animals make this journey every year.

Many volunteers embark on this adventure during weekends, as they have these days off to explore, visit, or rest.

You might be interested in an environmental conservation or agriculture program if you’re a nature lover. On the other hand, there are also orphanage, teaching, special education, community aid, daycare, and special needs programs. If you enjoy being with children and playing with them, this program is perfect for you, and you’ll also get to know their way of life and learn many things from the little ones.

You’ll also find programs to support women since women in Kenya still face discrimination and inequality due to their gender. The volunteer programs addressing this discrimination include women and youth development program, Maasai women program, and women empowerment program. In these programs, women will be helped and given tools to start a business and become independent. This goal will be achieved through basic teaching of subjects such as mathematics and English or workshops where they can improve their skills and learn new activities, such as sewing or making objects to sell and make a profit.

If you have medical knowledge or experience and want to put it into practice, the medical program may be a good option. Depending on your specialty and knowledge, you’ll be assigned various tasks. You’ll assist and work alongside healthcare professionals in a rural hospital in Kenya.

Volunteer programs will take place in different locations in Kenya, including Nairobi, Mombasa, Kwale, Kisumu, Diani, Ukunda, Gatanga, Muranga, and Maasai Mara. Some programs are conducted in more than one location, so you can choose the location you prefer.

What does volunteering focused on university practices involve?

At Cooperating Volunteers, we make agreements with different universities to validate university credits with the aim of traveling in a more responsible and economical way.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. 

Spending quality time with family and being able to disconnect from our hectic routines is not only enriching but also necessary.

Sometimes we forget to communicate, connect, and dedicate time to each other. Each one of us lives focused on our jobs, schools… And it’s necessary to find the opportunity to pause and take care of ourselves.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. And of course, it creates lifelong positive memories.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we suggest moving away from those ‘more superficial’ trips (which can also be fantastic), but we invite you to live this experience to bring out our most empathetic and humanitarian side.

Family volunteering gives us the opportunity to be part of a positive impact, promoting values of solidarity and social responsibility.

There are many families who choose to experience these trips focused on cooperation and direct involvement with different communities around the world, where living conditions are very different and sometimes entirely precarious.

Projects are tailored to different ages, allowing us to work together.

An incredible way to fill our suitcase with memories, learning, and knowledge.

And although stepping out of our comfort zone often feels daunting, we assure you firsthand that it’s worth it.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we accompany you throughout the entire experience, from start to finish, to make it unforgettable.


At Cooperating Volunteers, we believe it’s never too late for anything, especially for volunteering and living a unique and unforgettable experience.

We can adapt both the destination and the duration of our projects to fit your needs.

It’s an opportunity full of emotions that allows us to significantly contribute to different communities and their evolution. And you can participate in different areas such as education, social support, or assistance in different centers.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Sense of purpose: Provides a sense of purpose by contributing your skills and experiences to meaningful causes.
  • Emotional well-being: Reduces feelings of isolation and establishes social connections.
  • Personal development: It’s continuous learning, skill development, and discovering new activities while keeping the mind-body active.

A volunteering initiative with leadership and impact through the educational action program.

When we talk about social volunteering, we refer to all those actions and activities carried out altruistically, selflessly, and with the aim of addressing multiple problems and needs of different communities, always focused on education and self-sufficiency.

Education is essential because it provides the tools and knowledge necessary for personal, social, and economic development.

Our goal is to create self-sufficient communities and provide opportunities for the future personal development of each member. The message is not to ‘give’, but to accompany in the process of training for self-managed provision.

At Cooperating Volunteers, many of our destinations and projects embrace this type of volunteering. Some of our projects include: community programs, education, women’s empowerment…

And although they are completely different from each other, they share a single objective: progress towards a society that can embrace us all in the same way.

If you are someone who is restless, who needs to see a change in the future, volunteering is an experience tailor-made for you.
