Special Offer!

Why have one epic experience when you can have two?

We're offering you the unique opportunity to have two amazing experiences in one trip - to explore and summit the stunningly beautiful Mount Kenya followed by enjoying our Walk for Water - an immersive cultural experience in Bomet County where you will meet the communities your fundraising has helped to support.

This 14 day trip is reserved for a maximum of 20 people and is being offered at a hugely discounted package price with a fundraising target of £3250 - that's a huge £1850 discount compared to if you were to do the two trips separately!

TRIP COSTS

As we are a not for profit run by, and for, the charity Dig Deep, we don't pay the profits of UK middlemen and therefore our trips are the most affordable of any comparable challenge.

 

Your fundraising is split 50:50 between a charitable donation to Dig Deep, to help bring clean water to Kenya's poorest residents, and all your in-country costs associated with your challenge. It is completely your decision whether you wish to fundraise the whole amount, fundraise some and pay the remainder yourself or simply self-fund the whole amount.

Either way we provide comprehensive fundraising support to all of our fundraisers to ensure you reach your target one way or another. You can check out our online fundraising resources here.
