Tourism

A meaningful safari

Many travel companies provide their clients with cultural tourism, including exposure to the Maasai. But access to an authentic experience with the potential to build a future connection is rare.

The ICSEE welcomed clients of Planeterra and their partners, G Adventures into our Project villages for the first time in 2014.  While visiting Tanzania’s famous nearby parks, such as the Ngorongoro Crater pictured below, the G Adventure tourists now have special access to a first-hand introduction to the Project women, to witness what they are doing to improve their lives.

Tours that help to support our work

Our new partners contribute a small percentage of each tourist’s travel fees to help support our Project. We share a portion of that with local leaders to contribute to their preschools.

Maasai women from Losirwa and Esilalei villages along the popular safari path, are proud and happy to demonstrate stove installations to the tourists during their stop. For many, the visit with Project staff and Women’s Installation Team members are tour highlights.
