Kalukuni Mixed Day Secondary School
A community School Adventure Travel Kenya Safaris through its partners and Guests works closely with Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School, Kalukuni Primary School, Kasooni Primary School in Yatta District, Machakos County. Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School is an initiative of the elite youth and the community to find the cheapest way in which the poorest in the community can afford to take their children to the secondary school level after primary qualification. The school fees being a Day school is fair and now some can afford while others receive assistance from us and other donors.
The idea behind the school was triggered by the following factors
a) Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School is located in Yatta District, Machakos County which is an Arid zone receiving very little or no rainfall at all annually and though agriculture is the communities prevalence they end up harvesting nothing from their farms ,hence hunger and poverty is a serious threat to livelihood of the locals. With this poverty level nothing will be left to educate their children past primary education though the kids are bright and willing to continue with their education. The primary school drop outs would end up either being criminals or engage in drugs. Girls will engage in early marriages with a high risk of contracting HIV-Aids.
b) Orphaned children from parents who died of HIV AIDS and have no one to take care of their education after primary section. Hence the need for “SOMEONE “to see them through secondary education. The school due to the surrounding environment poverty level has a lot of challenges and lacks basic essential facilities for a conducive learning environment. It is with a lot pleasure and honour that Adventure Travel Kenya invites any willing Donor to support this noble course as guided below
- Adopt a student
- Adopt an infrastructure (Dinning, Library, Computer room, Classroom)
- Adopt a Teacher

Suswa Maasai community poverty alleviation project
Suswa is also a dry area found within the basin of Great Rift Valley. The inhabitants are the Maasai pastoral community. Water for both human consumption and livestock is very scarce. Since culturally the Maasai are Livestock Keepers and this is their main source of livelihood, Adventure Travel Safaris thought it was wise to talk to its Friends and see how we can avail water to the community. Currently a Director of Adventure Travel James Simiren is through his friends raising funds to sink a borehole for the Suswa community. This we believe will;
Reduce the suffering the he Maasai women trek everyday for almost whole day trying to find water for the family.
Provide water to the Livestock which are economic pillar of the community hence improving on the local population livelihoods Provide clean water and reduce the risk of contacting water borne diseases.
The problem of orphans in Kenya is on the increase as indicated by various government and non governmental organizations reports. This is largely due to the HIV/AIDS scourge. The National Aids and Sexually Transmitted Disease Control Programme (NASCOP) estimated that HIV/AIDS orphans would be approximately 965,000 in the year 2012. In the year 2002 an average of 700 people were dying everyday from HIV/AIDS related illness.
HIV/AIDS has a great negative impact on our country and as such it was declared a national disaster in the year 2000 by the then President of Kenya. It heavily burdens the citizens who are already suffering from the effects of poverty, tropical diseases and high levels of illiteracy.
The phenomenon of households headed by children is on the increase due to the deaths of the parents. The eldest children in families are forced by this circumstance to take up the role of the deceased parents. This is especially the case in the urban areas where they are away from their extended families. Such children often drop out of school so that they can earn a living and support their younger siblings. On the other hand in the rural areas you find that grandparents have the burden to bring up their grand children who have been orphaned.
Orphans are faced by many difficulties like lack of basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, medical care and even education. Studies show that they contribute to the largest number of street children as they opt to go to the streets where they beg for handouts and rummage in the garbage in search of food. Other orphans get involved in hazardous activities like prostitution as they struggle to eke for a living.
There is an urgent need to look in to the problems of these orphans by ensuring that their needs are met. There is a great need to empower them so that they can rise above their suffering and disadvantages.

Visa and Passport
A valid passport is required for all foreigners entering Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Visa requirements vary according too country of origin. Most nationality however, require visa to enter Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. We advise that you check with the nearest Consulate of Kenya, Tanzania or Uganda, if traveling to the respective country. Visa can be processed at the airports upon arrival but this can be very slow. We therefore advise clients to purchase them from their countries of origin before traveling.
A yellow fever and Cholera vaccination certificate is required in Kenya if visitors are arriving from a country where these diseases are present. Yellow fever certificate is required in Tanzania regardless of country of origin. We advise that all clients seek advice from their doctors when planning to travel. Malaria prophylaxis is recommended
Kenyan currency is based on the decimal system. The unit of currency is the Shilling divided into 100 cents. Visitors are advised to check currency exchange rates regularly. Banks give slightly better rates of exchange than hotels. It is a serious offense to deface or knowingly damage Kenyan currency. Visitors are strongly advised to avoid street dealers and to transact all currency dealings through official dealers.
Nairobi, Mombasa and most other principal centers in Kenya have banks with Bureau de Change. Banking hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday, though some open between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the first and last Saturday of each month. Banks at Jomo Kenyatta and Moi International Airports operate a 24-hour service.
A Service Charge is usually included in all tariffs, however the tipping of exceptional service is always appreciated. Customary tips for bar service and room porters are 10% whereas restaurant tariffs that exclude service charge will anticipate a 5% to 10% tip.
In keeping with many tourist centers worldwide, visitors are advised not to leave any valuables in their hotel room when they go out, but to make use of the safe deposit boxes which are available at most hotels and lodges. As in all major cities, it is advisable to avoid back streets at night (especially alone); in fact is it much safer to avoid night walking altogether and use taxis or self-drive hire cars instead. Kenya has an excellent police force and most hotels have experienced security personnel and caring doormen.
The standard checkout time in Kenya is 10 a.m. regardless of the actual departure time from your hotel. Day room facilities maybe available for clients leaving in the evening or they may allow you keep your room until departure depending on the occupancy of the Hotel. A charge will be payable locally for this service.
Whenever possible we book rooms with private bathrooms on the basis of two persons sharing a double room. Single rooms are available at supplementary cost but neither single room nor rooms with private bath can be guaranteed especially within the national parks and game reserves. Hotels, where mentioned, are named as an indication of category and rooms may be reserved at similar hotels.
