Our program is initiated and managed by the Imbaseni village community. The community raised the initial funds to start up the program and the incomes from the tour will be used to support local government schools and other community projects.
Our hiking routes are selected and designed to ensure your comforts and safety. All local food and drinks offered, as part of the program, is prepared with strict hygiene standards. All guides and hosts are community members who were trained by volunteer professionals from the tourist industry.
