Girls’ Conservation and mentorship camp, April 2023.

We recently hosted an incredible four-day camp for a group of 30 Maa girls from the Amboseli ecosystem. This was not our first camp but one of many Conservation and Mentorship Camps we host for the girls each holiday. The girls’ camps are always an amazing experience for all of us, filled with adventure, discovery, and fun and this camp was no different. Each morning, the girls woke up bright and early each day for morning exercise and a safari walk to our viewpoint, where they spotted various wildlife and the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro.

After breakfast, we delved into educational sessions on topics such as Critical Thinking, Decision Making, Nurturing Your Talents, Goal Setting, and Self-Confidence. These were facilitated by our young but experienced mentors who engaged the girls in thought-provoking discussions and activities. But it wasn’t all work and no play! We played games that tested the girls’ teamwork and creativity, and we also had a talent show complete with judges and prizes. The girls showed off their amazing talents, leaving us all in awe of their skills.

On day 3, we took a trip to the Tsavo West National Park, an area of 9,065 square kilometers filled with magnificent scenery, rich and varied wildlife, and unique attractions such as the Shetani Lava Flow and the Mzima Springs. We had a great time exploring the park, and the girls got to see firsthand the importance of conservation efforts in preserving our natural heritage

The final night of the camp was a memorable one. We had a bonfire where we shared stories, laughed, danced, and watched a movie. We could feel the bonds that were created over the past few days between the girls and the mentors.

Overall, the Girls’ Conservation and Mentorship Camp was a life-changing experience for the girls and mentors. We are proud to have partnered with Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE) to make this camp possible. Special thanks to Kenya Wildlife Service as well who made the visit to Tsavo West National Park possible. We hope that the knowledge and skills acquired during the camp will stay with the girls forever, and we look forward to hosting more camps in the future.
