“We don’t plan trips, we offer amazing life changing travel experiences.”
There is no better way to appreciate humankind than to see them in their rawest form. The team provides unique, raw, natural opportunities to engage with different culturesat their source. These include living in rural cultural villages, attending cultural festivals, homestays, farm visits, tea and coffee farm visits, and engagements with locals. You will leave feeling like you are leaving your home. We offer cultural experiences, not only cultural sightings.
There are no “pre-planned” experiences or itineraries inscribed in stone to be followed, You see what the world opts to showcase of itself, as you live out of your rucksack.The surprise element through out takes adventure to a whole new level and enables one to explore more, traverse the less travelled paths and experience so much more. We also offer a first of its kind service dubbed “Travel Buddy” where we offer you a “friend” to travel with you. This is unique as it also encompasses introverts who dislike crowds or individual whose “friends and family’ are not necessarily interested in their kind/niche of travel. This individual will be your guide on your travel experience as well as your “friend” to ensure you do not get bored or lonesome.
This is for those who do not like to be engaged in all the craziness associated with researching and planning for a trip. We recognize there is so much informationeverywhere which can be overwhelming and confusing while planning a trip. We take up the “hassle” on behalf of the client and provide unique, customized, end to end travel experiences that will specifically meet the client preferences and exceed the clients expectations. All you need to worry about is what to pack as personal effects which we can also take up if need be.

David Carmona, France – Wangechi est une amoureuse de l’Afrique.
Inconditionnel voyageuse et aventurière elle connait chaque recoins du Kenya.
Elle ma guide au travers des villes, des campagnes et des parcs nationaux de son pays avec passion.
J’ai le sentiment d’en avoir pris plein les yeux et d’en savoir beaucoup plus sur les différentes tribus et la richesse culturel de ce pays.
Elle est venu me chercher directement a l’aéroport et nous avons passe quelques jours a Nairobi avant de rendre visite a sa famille de Nyeri. Puis nous avons traverse différents parcs nationaux tel que Nakuru ou Masai Mara.
Elle a été mon guide personnel pour 1 mois et a fait de mon voyage un moment inoubliable.

I went on a backpacking tour, a first for me to four counties with Wangechi Gitahi Travels; Meru, Maua ,Isiolo and Samburu counties. It was an amazing road trip that we traversed via PSVs, an experience of a lifetime!! I came to know that each county has its own attractions, no matter where you travel there is always something that will amaze you. The itinerary of the trip was perfect with well-chosen things to see and experience. I remember the road side discussions with mirra vendors in Meru, the lovely hotel in Isiolo where we stayed, the magnificent Catholic Church building in Maua and the highlight of the trip was learning the Samburu Culture in Archers Post and taking part in their traditional dances. The trip was quite different from what other tour companies are offering- I experienced the world by being immersed in it. Thank you for opening my eyes to new destinations and experiences. Wangechi Gitahi Travels, I will definitely be back for more fun and adventure! The trip far exceeded my expectations.
I travelled to Maralal with Wangechi Gitahi Travels in August 2016. I had always wanted to go for the Camel Derby which is held annually in Maralal town. Come mid-July I reached out to the only person whom I knew would definitely have insights on how to make it happen. With her love for African culture, adventure and travel there was no going wrong with my selection. Thanks to her expansive travels within the unchartered Northern part of Kenya and her great connections we were hosted by a Jirte in Maralal who made our stay and adventure even more memorable. On the day of the Derby, Wangechi organized for shopping in the local town for jewelry and akala shoes. I tell you we blended in very well with our new attire. At the main grounds where the derby was happening we got a chance to see the flag off of the camel race surprisingly or not so surprisingly all participants of the Derby were locals. We visited the cultural center and even got to join in the dances and explore Samburu culture. Travelling with Wangechi Gitahi travels is nothing short of a personalized trip full of adventure and fun. Would definitely recommend it.
