A Company Focused on Empowerment and the Trip of a Lifetime

We've teamed up with travel blogger Erin Outdoors to offer an amazing trip to Kenya.

At Unbuntu Made we're excited to partner with travel blogger and photographer Erin Outdoors to offer a completely unique way to experience Kenya. Ubuntu is all about connecting people around the world, with the aim of empowering Kenyan children with special needs and their families. We want to share the magic we've experienced with you!

This amazing trip is part of a benefit of our Kickstarter campaign to launch the Afridrille.  Based on the classic Spanish espadrille, it's the perfect travel shoe: light, comfortable, and versatile. Every pair is made by hand with high quality materials and in collaboration with top Kenyan designers.

The trip we're offering, priced at $3,500, provides a unique opportunity to connect with Kenyan families. Here are a few highlights:

  • Guided trip by experienced adventure travel writer and photographer Erin Outdoors
  • 1 night accommodation in Nairobi 
  • Accommodation in Maai Mahiu 
  • Visit to Ubuntu’s workshop in the Great Rift Valley where you can meet their inspiring Maker Mums and their kids
  • Camping with Maasai families 
  • Meals throughout the trip (except for in Nairobi) 
  • Ground transportation and guide fees
  • Cap it off with a two-night luxury safari DURING THE WILDEBEEST MIGRATION in the epic Maasai Mara with GameWatchers Safaris, one of Kenya’s leading eco-tourism companies

Fine print: Trip does not include airfare, meals in Nairobi, shopping, and gratuities for Kenyan guides. 

Just 10 spots will be sold on the trip -- check it out today!
