Our family of seven enrolled in this adventure and it was the highlight of our time in Nairobi. Grace and her amazing extended family welcomed us into their village and their home and gave us a great insight into Kenyan village life! Our children are in their mid to late 20s. They had a ball! They cooked with Grace’s aunt and we all ate the proceeds. Paul got a trip to a local home to sample the home brewed beer and returned with beer for all. Felt safe and welcomed - chatted and laughed with the village ladies for ages. Our girls fell in love with the Kenyan children and farm animals. Then driven back home by Grace’s uncle who is a professional driver! Highly recommend this unique experience to anyone wanting a friendly insight into Kenyan village life!
