Volunteer Kenya: Accommodation

Volunteer in Africa » Volunteer in Kenya » Volunteer Kenya Application

Volunteers in Nairobi stay at a hostel type accommodation or home stay accommodation.

You will share a room with a number of other volunteers of the same gender and will sleep in bunk beds.

Couples are provided a separate room.

You will share a flushing toilet and bathroom with a shower with other volunteers. There is running water in the house.

As with the running water, there is electricity, but this will not be as reliable as it is at home in the West (A good reason to bring a decent torch!). Black-outs are common, and it is not unusual to go without power for a few hours at a time.

You will need to do all your own laundry (by hand), as well as cleaning your room and helping with cleaning of the common areas and kitchen.

    Kenya Masai Volunteer Program Accommodation

    Accommodation for volunteers is basic and at the Masai village (Manyatta). The volunteers have the opportunity to learn about Maasai people and Maasai culture. They also see Masai warriors in the community and in the Maasai villages (Manyattas).

    Living conditions on the Kenya Maasai volunteer program are basic. Masai home stays having no running water or electricity. The areas tend to be very dry but scenic.
