There are many who are misinformed and at times, uninterested to know about the great continent, that is Africa. Africa is the world's second-largest and second-most-populous continent. At about 30.3 million km2 (11.7 million square miles) including adjacent islands, it covers six percent of Earth's total surface area and 20.4 percent of its total land area. The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The continent includes Madagascar and various archipelagos. It contains 54 fully recognized sovereign states (countries), nine territories and two de facto independent states with limited or no recognition. Africa hosts a large diversity of ethnicities, cultures and languages. In the late 19th century European countries colonized most of Africa. Most modern states in Africa originate from a process of decolonization in the 20th century. The climate of Africa ranges from tropical to subarctic on its highest peaks. Its northern half is primarily desert, or arid, while its central and southern areas contain both savanna plains and very dense jungle (rainforest) regions. Africa's population has rapidly increased over the last 40 years, and consequently, it is relatively young. In some African states, half or more of the population is under 25 years of age. The total number of people in Africa increased from 229 million in 1950 to 630 million in 1990. As of 2014, the population of Africa is estimated at 1.2 billion. With such a variety, this peninsular continent has more to offer than meets the eye. The tourism industry is improving and why not! One of the best local tour operators is African Safe Travels. African Safe Travels or African and Abroad Safe Travels is a reliable, reputable and environmentally conscious tour operator for East Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. When you chose African and Abroad Safe Travels, you are buying total peace of mind. We have a wide range of safari programs which ensure that you have a wide variety and choice. We know the destinations we offer. The choices of right hotels ensure that you are comfortable throughout your stay. As an African tour operator, we provide the best volunteer abroad programs and the best internship abroad programs for all the adventure enthusiastic humanitarians. All the "adventourists" can opt for adventure tour after volunteer which will focus on African volunteering, predominantly, and then Africa adventure travel. African and Abroad Safe Travels offers you facilities for walking safari and an insight into cultural conservation in Kenya. All of which are completely safe and crafted keeping all the adversities, that might come, in mind.

Cultural Conservation in Kenya is a step towards the betterment of the living standards of the Kenyans. It is one of the best volunteer abroad programs or best internship abroad programs for the ones who want to volunteer in the place of the great Maasai Mara. We, at African and Abroad Safe Travels, have carefully crafted this package to give you an insight to the culture of Kenya and your support in African volunteering will be admired. The African volunteering program will be conducted in the Maasai Region and the working hours would be 25-35 hours per week. Generally, the project starts from 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month and the departure/end point will be Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Massai land is close to Kenya’s best-known and finest wildlife reserve – the Maasai Mara. The land is located in the south west region of Kenya, about 90 minutes from Nairobi. The land covers an area around 1530 square km and is reserved for Maasai people, who live a pastoral and nomadic lifestyle. To volunteer in the Cultural Conservation Project in Kenya, there are no specific qualifications or skills required. Volunteers must be open-minded, flexible, patient, caring and motivated. An appreciation for cultural awareness and preservation is necessary for this package of African volunteering. The reason we are organizing this project in the Maasai region is that, sadly, many Maasai are left with few economic opportunities. As a result of which, they are forced to migrate to urban areas for survival, leaving their communities with less human resources and infusing the Maasai culture with other traditions and ideas, which alters the original culture. As a volunteer in the Cultural Conservation Project in the Maasai region of Kenya, you can immerse yourself into Maasai daily life and collaborate with Maasai people by sharing ideas and promoting projects to preserve and increase appreciation of the Maasai culture. As a volunteer on the African volunteering project of African and Abroad Safe Travels, you would have certain roles that you need to conduct dutifully. The roles would vary based on experience and skills. Some examples of possible projects are - integrating in and understanding Maasai history and traditions, working with the Maasai people to preserve and document their traditions, planning extracurricular activities to engage in the community, teaching locals about your own culture, and a lot more. However, you would be rolled into an adventure tour after volunteer that would definitely give you the much required adrenaline rush.

The ‘adventure tour after volunteer’ by African and Abroad Safe Travels are thoroughly designed and include trips like the walking safari, mountain climbing and the carnivore meat experience. There are various perks of travelling (not vacationing), and it can be fulfilled with the packages of African and Abroad Safe Travels. Travel opens one’s mind to the known and unknown alike and this relaxation cannot be achieved otherwise. Travel is the best way to enjoy life like never before. It is definitely one of the best forms of escaping the monotone of a routine lifestyle, the best method to break shackles of the modern pseudo-fun. With such a travel opportunity coupled with a humanitarian cause is definitely the best volunteer abroad programs or best internship abroad programs.
