Having successfully completed their house building project, the volunteers from Aberdeen based charity Gathimba Edwards Foundation have been enjoying some downtime while taking in some of the tourist attractions Kenya has to offer.

After arriving in Nairobi, some of the volunteers enjoyed a well earned rest day by the pool at Hotel Troy others ventured to Giraffe Centre. The more adventurous of the team headed out to Lake Naivasha for a boating safari and cycled through the famous Hell’s Gate National Park.

Meanwhile, for the Foundation’s David Sagida the building wasn’t over as he travelled back to Iten to completed the building of a house for Brian Kiplimo.

The following day, the volunteers visited the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and Nairobi National Park. For some, that was the end of this Kenyan adventure, but some will be enjoying a three-day safari in Masai Mara.
