Top organisation merging high quality tours with life-changing charity work. Truly memorable.
5/5

I had grand plans on arrival in Kenya to do a couple of the One Horizon tours, however had issues with their booking system only booking for the day after tomorrow. This led to phone calls with owner-operator Colin, who was able to accomodate me with both tours I wanted in a half-day personalised tour. I was met by Carol at my hotel and travelled to meet mothers with HIV thriving thanks to a two-year rehabilitation program that teaches them trade and entrepreneurial skills so they can set up their own business to support their families. There I also met Solomon (and Colin, briefly) and together we travelled on to meet two grandmothers thriving off pig-farming and able to support their families for the first time in their lives. I honestly could write tons about these experiences, but I will keep it to this: being a development graduate, I know what good charity and bad charity looks like. Colin gets in there and asks what is needed in the community and then makes it happen. The programs come from the community and the community thrives because of it. This is charity at its best. All of the women but particularly the warm hospitality shown by the grandmothers and Carol and Solomon over a lunch we made together, hearing stories about Kenyan life, the struggles, was probably the single best tourism experience I ever had. Carol and Solomon answered every question I had and then some, and I felt so inspired by their hard work and dedication. Travelling for another two months across Africa this tour remained my number one experience and takeaway of what Africa is. I cannot recommend One Horizon highly enough.

Welcoming and Great
5/5

I cannot recommend them more. We loved our tour. We were able to spend the day with a Masai family learning and experiencing a piece of their culture. One Horizon was amazing in that as well as moving things around. My mum missed her flight into Kenya and came in an hour after our tour was to start. I contacted One Horizon who accommodated and picked us up an hour late so that my mum could come on the tour. We were very impressed with their customer service as well as all of their tour!

Go Granny Go Day Tour - Responsible Travel, Compelling Stories and Fun
5/5

With a day to spare in Nairobi, I looked for a tour that was not the usual tourist thing but instead offered an opportunity to meet a few local people and do support a worthwhile organization. One Horizon offered exactly that.

Booking was simple - confirmation almost instant with clear information on pickup time and place.
Carol arrived exactly as planned and drove to/from the farm location for the time spent with the 'grannies' who are supported and learn to farm to support themselves and their grandchildren. The ladies (Beatrice and Eunice) made me feel welcome and shared their stories and chapati making while explaining what the program was about and how it is impacting their lives for the better. The piglet/pigs were fun too.

Support an operator who actively works in the community to supply education and earning opportunities for the disadvantaged.
When I return I'd definitely participate again - but for more than a day tour.

It was a beautifully organized experience we will never forget!
5/5

From the booking and planning to the day of the experience, One Horizon Africa blew us away. Everything was well planned and there were so many personal touches that our tour guide added to the experience. He answered all our many questions and helped us connect with the wonderful Maasai women we spent the day with. We came away with a better understanding of the Maasai womens' lives in Kenya and we connected with them on a very basic level as fellow mothers. We sang, made jewelry, and shared stories. One Horizon provided us with professionally taken photos for memories of a fantastic day and even sent us email thank-you notes following the experience. We would recommend them to anyone.

Once in a lifetime, enlightening experience
5/5

Initially I had some issues with communication where my guides went to pick me up from the wrong accomodation however, it was easy to contact the organisation and find out where they were. The service was great, I was given additional help by the guides who were so friendly and was able to speak with them on a personal level and had an insight into their lives as Kenyans as well. The tour was amazing, beyond expectations and hearing the stories of the women I met were mind blowing, humbling and empowering. My life has been forever changed from this personal and enlightening experience. Thank you One Horizon for your important work and providing this opportunity for us. I hope to one day return to Kenya and be a part of it again with my son.
