August 1st - November 30th 2024

We are travellers like you, we love exploring the destinations to the core rather than just ticking them, we are all about mingling with the local communities creating a positive change everywhere we go and having deeper connections with those we meet.  We inmmerse ourselves in the local gastronomies and create transformative experiences as we believe that our impact on this little planet should strive to leave a positive footprint wherever our journey takes us. Through genuine interactions, we aim to not only explore the destinations but also contribute to their well-being, leaving behind a legacy of mutual understanding and shared experiences.

You can join us for a few weeks or stay till the end! We realised in our first months of working remotely that it can be sometimes difficult to always meet new people while on the road, which is why we've made it our mission to cultivate a supportive and vibrant community. Whether you're seeking inspiration, friendship, or simply a change of scenery, our retreats offer the ideal blend of adventure and connection.

Lamu Island: August 1st - September 1st 2024

Lamu is a true paradise. It couldn't be stressed enough, the little maze streets, the kindness of the people, the delicious fresh seafood & local Swahili cuisine... A small community of 25,000 people in the island just 1.5 hour flight from Nairobi. Watch the ocean as you work, a traditionally built dhow sailing by, the donkeys wandering the streets, boats floating on their anchors, others busy ferrying passengers across the islands. Venture yourself into the magic labryinth-style town, gaze at the uniquely wood-carved doors, slow down, life here is pole pole as they say in Swahili... (the laid-back life).
