Every day the Land & Life Foundation works together with the communities of East Africa’s iconic wildlife areas towards a sustainable future where communities and wildlife thrive together. The last few months of 2017 will be no exception, with two outstanding projects in two of Kenya’s top wildlife regions;

Wildlife Warrior Program and Retreat

From November 14th – 17th 2017, students of the Wildlife Warrior Program will travel to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to participate in the Wildlife Warrior Retreat.

Partnering with local schools, the Wildlife Warrior Program provides our youth with the skills and experience to work in harmony with the environment and wildlife, developing the community leaders of tomorrow through education.

Through a personalised curriculum, developed to ensure the students are given practical skills in environmental and wildlife conservation, the students attending the Wildlife Warrior Retreat will be able to observe, participate and engage with nature, wildlife and the renowned conservation efforts underway in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

6th Aitong Medical Camp

The first week of December will see the return of the annual Aitong Medical Camp providing free medical treatment to over 1,000 people in the Mara.

Focused on adult health, family planning, cervical cancer screening, maternal child health, paediatrics and dentistry, the 2016 three-day camp provided treatment to 885 people thanks to the six dedicated specialists who offered their services free of charge.

To assist the communities of the Mara receive the medical care and attention they need, we are attempting to raise a total of $4,000 to cover the costs of the camp.

If you are able to support them in any way please help here

Dear Friends & Partners,

This year’s World Tourism Day aims to raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to development and for over 30 years, here at Cheli & Peacock we have aimed to offer environmentally-friendly safaris to the best & most unique properties and locations throughout East Africa following our motto ‘take only pictures, leave only footprints’.

We think that 2017 could use a little bit of positive news so we would like to share how each and every one of our guests have contributed to building a better future for people, planet, peace & prosperity by exploring our beloved East Africa on a Cheli & Peacock Safari:

  • For every bed night sold, we donate $1 to cover the operational & management costs of the Land & Life Foundation. Started in 2011 (formerly known as the C&P Community Trust) the Land & Life Foundation provides four programs for communities living alongside wildlife across Kenya & Tanzania: Wildlife Warrior Program, Nature Conservation, Medical Support & School Support.
  • Every Cheli & Peacock guest is registered with AMREF Flying Doctor services – this membership provides a donation to the vital grass roots work of AMREF (African Medical Research Foundation) who strive to improve health and healthcare in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities.
  • All properties in the Cheli & Peacock Safaris preferred property portfolio work with local communities to support wildlife conservation by providing economic benefits through bed-night levies, leasing agreements & education initiatives.
Thank you all for your contribution to building a better East Africa & preserving the countries that we love.

 

Best wishes & Happy World Tourism Day,

Cheli & Peacock Safaris

Dear Friends & Partners,

With immediate effect, Kenya Airports Authority have cancelled permissions for airside Meet & Greet. Therefore (just like every other modern airport), guests arriving at JKIA Nairobi International Airport will work their own way through immigration and luggage collection. As you all know, the system in Nairobi is very straight forward.
