Plans are moving ahead positively for AVIF’s adventure-based, sustainable-funding operation.
Fundraising and an incredible motorbike safari experience are now available for small groups, beginning Summer 2008 with KENYA ON 2.

Fundraising and a full bike license are pre-requisites but the arduous 2 week challenge promises to provide both an unforgettable trip as well as an opportunity to allocate even more resources e.g. solar technologies & educations, to all our host communities.

(LWD crew arrive in Africa)

…as an example :

Day 4: Ngong Hills – Maparasha Hills (150 Km on earth track)

Drive towards Mount Kilimanjaro on a narrow track across the savannah between acacias and anthills. Expect to meet herds of livestock, antelopes or giraffes. End the day at Maparasha hills to pitch-tent. Evening excursion to the top of nearby hills to watch game. Capture the sunset on Kilimanjaro (19950 ft). Retire to the campsite for an African dinner around a wood fire.

Day 5: Maparasha – Loitokitok (190 Km on earth track)

A visit to a local school then drive on an animal trail in the savannah to view Mount Kilimanjaro. Wildlife can be seen all around. Arrive at Kibo Slopes Cottages in Loitokitok, the main Maasai township that sits on the foothills of Kilimanjaro.

Day 6: Kilimanjaro foothills – Lake Jipe (160 Km – earth and stones)

Enjoying the full-view of the mountain, drive towards Tsavo on a red soil trail covered with black volcanic stones. Arrive at the gate of Tsavo-West National Park and load the bikes on a lorry, cross the park by car towards Ziwani gate where the bikes are off-loaded. Head towards Lake Jipe in the Tsavo reserve on a sandy track .. Boat ride on the lake before sunset. Return to the bandas (cottages thatched with coconut palm leaves) right on the lakeshore …

Take a look on the website and consider your plans are for next Summer.
