When you are in a beautiful country like Kenya, working hard helping others, it sure is a good idea to treat yourself to something beautiful as well! A great safari in a fantastic country with great scenery and wildlife. Around the orphanage and in the community you might encounter some difficult times when you see povert in the slums, sick children in the hospital and perhaps read about the background of some of the children in Upendo. This can be emoitional and hard on you. So when you want to take a short break, reload so you can be the best volunteer you can be, you can go on a safari!
