Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year.

How to make this day count?
It is the simple things that show you care about the Earth and it's environment. There many conservancies and Environmental bodies that have competitions and "donate" programmes that you could contribute to, such as UNEP,WWF and many more!

You could also just plant a tree, clean up by picking up litter in you area or simply send and E-card with a special Earth day message!

And the Easter bunny is back......

Days seem to be moving faster than you anticipated and it seems like just the other day you were celebrating love on Valentine’s Day, then came the elections (if you are in Kenya) and now there’s a bunny and eggs in every mall, shop or street you happen to pass by! You must be thinking to yourself, “Is it Easter time already?” 

Easter is a period where you recollect your faith as a Christian and embark on your religious journey; however it is also time to spend with your loved ones as you enjoy the festivities and indulge yourselves to the tasty food treats! But more importantly...it is time to take a break and relax.

However, to enjoy the break and get involved in the relaxing, it means you could choose to stay home and enjoy peace and quiet in your own serenity or it’s a great excuse to dial up your favourite travel agent (us) and take a short trip to one of the many destinations that we can offer!

Of course you must be thinking ... “Now they want me to break a bank?!” but the truth is, we work within your budget, so no need to stress yourself about the finances, plus we currently know the places that are already fully booked and places that still have availability, thus saving you time and energy and that annoying response from travel/tour co-ordinators “I am sorry sir, the hotel is fully booked..”

So try not to get caught up in the last minute Easter travel rush and book as early as yesterday, and give your loved ones that worthwhile, pocket friendly holiday that they have been dying to go for ever since the year took off. 

Remember we have a list of over 600 hotels and lodges, plusover 300 safari itineraries and lots of specials that you could choose from! Take advantage now! And smile back at the Easter Bunny as he says hello, while you sip your cocktails by that resort’s pool or while on that trek in that much deserved 

Climbing Mt. Longonot

Every year the Uniglobe Let's Go Travel team organises a "team trip" which is meant to be an activity kind of safari. This year, we decided to challenge ourselves and climb Mt. Longonot. Truth be told....i think some of us underestimated how tough it could be but we also underestimated how strong our bodies are!


It was all set...


And here we go....


And the climb....


By the time we were getting half way Monica our chief accountant and I (Angela) - barely  3 months after baby delivery needed to catch our breath...haha


After 2 hours of tough climbing, we finally got to the peak 


After getting to the peak, there those who felt they had the strength to circumnavigate the mountain and others who felt their bodies had had enough..lol 


And if you thought coming down the mountain was a simple task..think again! 

So what exactly do you need to take up climbing Mt. Longonot besides being physically and mentally fit ?
 

• Good pair of walking boots (broken-in) 
•  A Hat
• Walking stick. An adjustable sprung loaded stick is best
• Camera, sun cream, plus your sweater that will be removed during the climb
• All of this hike is over rough ground and has all the hazards of hiking up steep inclines
• Don't under estimate dehydration. Drink water at the end of each section, and as required.
• Rucksack. Large enough to carry 2 x ½ litter of water plus few sandwiches to eat at the top
• The ranger's advice on all matters including your rate of progress should always be listened to
•Animals. There are numerous animals in the area; the most commonly seen is the giraffe or dik-dik.
• The crater can be circumnavigated, this takes another 4 hours via a narrow path. 
 
Do you think you and your friends and loved ones would be interested in taking up this challenge? If we did it...the you should  definitely do it, a happy-go spirit is all you need!

Giving back to the community in a simple way

We Uniglobe Let’s Go Travel love giving back to the community. We feel that it is right to share with the less fortunate and especially at this period (Christmas time), as it is a time to show and spread love.

Our staff arrive at the center and donate food stuff ....Over the years we have always put aside USD 30 from the safaris we structure and sell to you and with each safari, we build a kitty that funds raised are given to a project that we identify is beneficial to our communities.

In the past we have built toilets for rural schools, as well as donated computers and also donated food stuffs and clothes to charity homes among others.

This year, our staff visited the Body of Christ Home, where they got to interact with the elderly and the children who stay there. Below is an open letter to the home’s director Pat Dixson from our staff who took time out of their schedule to spend time with these lovely people and children.

 

Dear Pat,

We want to thank you for the wonderful and inspiring work you are doing for the elderly and the orphaned children.

It was truly fulfilling helping to distribute the food to the elderly as they sang enjoyable songs and where they got their share of food donated through you. We were really amazed by the way all the people got each and every bit of what was given without any shortages, i.e., matches, cooking fat, ugali floor, paraffin, bread, money, etc

Orphaned children at the center perform on stage for our staff...:)
We were moved and touched by those little children at ‘’Body of Christ’’ who welcomed us, danced for us and the touching poems about them being orphans....and they were really thankful to Pastor Mbugua for providing them with shelter, food and education. They brought sunshine to the day in spite of the rain!

Next time, we hope to bring beddings such as blankets and clothes.

You truly are an inspiration to us and God bless you. We thank God for giving you so much strength to do this and pray that you continue with the same spirit.

Our best regards,

Catherine, Rosina, Susan, James and Paula
