Conservation Safaris

Action for Cheetahs in Kenya (ACK) is proud to be a part of two amazing conservation-travel programs, each of which offer an immersive cultural and wildlife experience unlike any other. Join us for an exciting and unique safari experience that contributes to the viability of wildlife and Kenyans alike! 

The first program is offered to zoo-keepers and volunteers affiliated with the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK). Currently, ACK receives support from zoo grants and from the AAZK Bowling for Rhinos  - this safari is an opportunity for zoo keepers to further understand and appreciate the efforts that they support.

The second program is offered through the non-profit travel organization Miradi Wild, and is available to families and/or individuals of all ages. Both programs feature experiences with Action for Cheetahs in Kenya and include excursions to world-renowned national parks and conservancies.

Tourist Lectures

Action For Cheetahs would like to share our project with you when you are vis­it­ing Kenya. Mary and/or Cosmas will speak with your group either in Nairobi or in the field.

Tourist LecturesOur research camp is only 90 km south­east of Nairobi and is along the route to Tsavo or Mombasa. We wel­come you to stop by for a tour of our research camp. 

If you have the time we can visit a school or com­mu­nity group project, go for a walk with our chee­tah scouts or do a bit of bird watch­ing in the hills around the camp. For groups that are self-contained you are wel­come to pitch your tent for a night or two.
