“My trip to Kenya with Kris Steinnes in September 2018 was an exciting, off-the-beaten-path travel adventure. Kris expertly led our group of (18?) on a cultural immersion experience that put us face-to-face with the Kenya people and took us to places seldom seen in traditional travel to Africa. Kris has been traveling the world for years and knows how to put together the details to make a group trip fun, insightful and memorable.” Bonnie Pasek
“The trip to Kenya was life changing and eye opening. It was wonderful to be able to meet people through our Kenyan host, Mary Omollo, and have a more personal experience than the typical tourist, visiting people in their homes. The people we met were so warm and welcoming. I enjoyed traveling over so much of the country and seeing the different terrain. Staying at the safari camps and being able to see the animals on the safaris was a life’s dream. It was a special trip on so many levels.” Wendy Howard
If you want to see Kenya from the eyes of the people who live there, go with Kris. She is knowledgeable, well organized, and fun. One of the best trips I’ve ever been on. Fran
I had the pleasure and honor to travel to Kenya with Kris. She has been there twice and has intimate connections and knowledge of this beautiful country. The trip was very well planned. We saw much of the country and met and even stayed, with Kenyans! Her choice of where to eat and stay was right on spot, and of course our Safari stay was wonderful! Allyson Hughes
