The care and friendship offered by Kupenda Africa is legendary with my students, and from the perspective of a Deputy Head Teacher at a large comprehensive school, the safety and well-being of my students throughout was never ever compromised. They stop at nothing to make the experience truly amazing and life-changing for my students, many of whom have since returned to Kenya and Tanzania. Their contacts and their local knowledge are invaluable. I would not consider taking groups of students to Africa unless the Kupenda team was looking after us.

Taking a group of students to Africa was a huge challenge to begin with, however with Jason and his amazing team all worries were dispelled as soon as we met. Their care, knowledge and understanding of the country was outstanding. Our itinerary was carefully put together, taking onboard all our expressed wishes and hopes for the trip and it was a tailored perfectly for our students. The food was delicious, a mixture of European and African and all our complex dietary requirements were taken into account with sensitivity and care making every student feel important. The overland transport was expertly driven and the feeling of being safe wherever we were was fantastic. We were able to experience local markets, streets and even Kibera in Nairobi with the confidence that we were in safe hands. Kupenda Africa is a fantastic company to travel with and our next trip is already booked. Thank you again for a fantastic three weeks, see you next year. Nunthorpe Academy, UK
Kupenda Africa is a small adventure tour company run by Jason Smith. He and his staff make you feel welcome and comfortable, making your experience with them memorable as they go out of their way for you in every possible way. They have customized our school trips to serve our students for the past 6 years in taking 60 or more students to Mount Suswa. The care and friendship offered by his staff has been outstanding. Their food, camping equipment, safety, services, are top-notch and the well-being of our students throughout each year has never ever been compromised. Jason stops at nothing to make the students experience truly amazing and potentially life-changing for each of them and we look forward to seeing them year after year. Rosslyn Academy, Kenya
Kupenda Africa greatly exceeded all of my expectations during our expedition to Kenya/Tanzania. The level of local knowledge, experience and personalised care offered by Jason and his team is second to none, and my students received a life-affirming three weeks that they will never forget. My role as group leader was made very comfortable by the level of support on offer. Logistics were incredibly smooth, all needs catered for and our bespoke itinerary allowed for deep connections with the area and its communities – providing much richer opportunities than previous trips I have taken with similar travel companies. I would highly recommend Kupenda Africa and look forward to working together for many years to come. Acklam Grange School, UK
I wouldn't want to travel Africa with anyone else! I can't recommend them highly enough, and can't wait to do another trip with them again soon. I miss you guys!

Spending three weeks in Africa would not have been the same without the amazing team. Their local knowledge and enthusiasm to ensure that we experienced African life to the full without complication was extraordinary. These are people to trust and rely on, they love what they are doing and giving others an experience of a life time when visiting an amazing, mind-opening country such as Africa. What Kupenda Africa offers is unique, giving you the satisfaction of a successful trip focussed on what is important to you. I couldn't recommend any other tour guide company in Africa, but Kupenda Africa.

What can I say? The team will go to any lengths to make your trip worthwhile and unique. You are guaranteed a fantastic and unforgettable trip. Kupenda Africa, Kupenda the Team!
Having travelled extensively throughout Kenya and Tanzania, and with the experience of leading several student groups from the U.K. on three-week overland trips in these two countries, it was a major breakthrough for me when Kupenda Africa took over one of my trips in 2007. Since then I would not consider using anyone else to be in charge of my arrangements in Africa, and I have just returned from another three weeks with them where my group of 24 students had another 'experience of a lifetime'. Loved every moment of this trip it was one of the best times of my life. The experience was unreal and the guides were legends. Kupenda Africa forever. Abi, UK
Thank you for such a wonderful trip. It was truly amazing and i would recommend you every time.
I had an amazing trip with Kupenda, the tour took us to see local Africa as well as the big sights, which is just what I wanted. Even the food on a budget was great and locally bought - thanks for giving me a memorable time in Kenya and Uganda! Gina
Jason and Grace are two absolutely wonderful people, I spent 3 weeks in Africa with them recently and I had an amazing time. They planned everything to perfection and I saw so many unbelievable sights I’ll definitely be visiting Africa with them again sometime.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Very approachable about anything! They make decisions which benefit the customers, regardless of the situation it puts them into. Overall top notch! Will definitely be travelling with them again! James
