If you’re looking for a unique safari experience which gives something back, look no further!
We believe that good business can be good for the environment and a route out of poverty. By applying principles of sustainable tourism and using our experience of participatory community development – a holiday with us leaves you with a lot more than spectacular pictures.
Stay in a four star safari camp on the shores of one of the largest rivers in Kenya, at the edges of Tsavo East National Park, with a choice of volunteering projects in wildlife conservation, reforestation and community enterprise development.
We offer responsible safaris in protected natural areas, conserving the environment and supporting community based organisations.
Green-Safari bridges the gap between comfort and conscientious travel. It’s simple: we ensure you have fun, relax and volunteer with host communities to have an all round good experience. We all have skills to share and the time to make a difference.

Green-Safari is a social enterprise based in the UK. We reinvest our profits in Independent Voices for Engagement, a social enterprise based in Nottingham which supports vulnerable adults to self advocate. We measure our success on the impact we have on communities and the environment, rather than our profit margin.
You can contribute directly to wildlife conservation as well as go on safari in Tsavo East National Park. We have an extensive network of local partners, specialising in wildlife protection (KWS), reforestation (KEFRI), wildlife conservation (Galana Wildlife Conservancy), and community based organisations (Chakama Women's Group).
Together we offer volunteering projects to those who want to go the extra mile and leave a positive imprint on the Kenyan Savannah. Voluntourists have a lasting impact on the community and the environment in a positive way.
Staying in the wild for too long can be tiring so you will have plenty of time to relax in Malindi. For travellers seeking a peaceful and relaxing tropical idyll far from the madding crowd, this is an ideal destination. The north Kenyan coast is dotted with small resort towns, along strips of white sandy beaches, surrounded by expanses of tropical forests, ancient historical sites and a fascinating local culture.
The small town of Malindi is at the centre of this strip of tranquil tropical beaches offering the visitor a range of world class resorts and quiet relaxing hideaways. Further south, the sleepy village of Watamu is fronted by wide white beaches. The beaches in both Malindi and Watamu are protected by a natural barrier reef making snorkelling in the protected Marine Parks rich in tropical fish and turtles - oh yes and it keeps the sharks away from the shore!
On a Green-Safari you are guaranteed an authentic safari with time to relax by the Kenyan coast, as well as time to share your skills and energy in locally run projects. Volunteering is planned into the day to day of a Green-Safari.
Our priority is to ensure volunteering with Green-Safari is accessible to people of all abilities and has a lasting impact on the local communities and environment!
Choose to stay from as little as ten days or as long as two months. We have partnered with local experts in reforestation, wildlife conservation and local community organisations - to ensure that whatever your interest there is plenty of choice to go green and feel good.
