On safari, the rhythm of nature takes us far away from the current and into how life used to be.
Kenya is Africa’s original safari destination, a land of vast plains teeming with wildebeest, zebra, and the accompanying predators all in the shadows of snow-peaked mountains. Our special adventure takes us far into the wildest areas of East Africa, staying at deluxe camps in private reserves, where nature is at our side. Game drives, safari walks, village visits, and a backstage exploration of a rare chimpanzee sanctuary, make our expedition special. But our connection with nature is not the only thing that runs deep, as our facilitated 12-step meetings held within the wilds of Africa provide an all-important connection with our own community, one we never leave behind even in our most ambitious journeys.

To participate in this adventure, you must arrive in Nairobi on Day 1 of your trip. However, we highly recommend arriving a day early to ensure you avoid airline delays. For those arriving a day early, we can book you an extra night in Nairobi. You are free to depart at noon or later on the final day.
Activities on our adventures are all optional, and often include time for participants to spend down time on their own or hanging out with others. After all, we are all about community. On this safari we spend a good amount of time on game drives in the reserves, giving us close-up encounters with wildlife. We also will enjoy short safari walks and chimpanzee trekking. Of course we also participate in recovery activities designed to build community and maintain our sobriety. Those include meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and recovery meetings.
