The intoxicating experience of being on an African safari is unlike anything else. Feel the mighty rumble underfoot as thousands of galloping wildebeest cross the open savannas, witness the commanding presence of African elephants at the river’s edge as they cool themselves from the afternoon heat, hear the gentle lionesses purring as they lay under the acacia tree grooming their cubs, or behold the regal giraffes as they comb the uppermost treetops searching for a midday snack.

For over a decade, SKYIN has established meaningful relationships with indigenous villages across Kenya. We are entrenched within both the Maasai and Mijikenda tribes developing enriching opportunities for communities to authentically share their culture while creating a sustainable impact.
SKYIN provides an exclusive opportunity to stay with a vetted host family in a suburban Nairobi residence. This allows our guests to experience the authentic culture, delicious food, and gracious people of Kenya. Our host families speak fluent English, undergo extensive training, and pass annual government background checks and screenings. Whether just spending an afternoon indulging in a family home-cooked dinner or staying overnight with a host family, travelers will discover keen insights into local culture and traditions, sharing a behind-the-scenes, intimate view of life in Kenya.
Modern conveniences provided include: private bedrooms and bathrooms, electricity, hot water showers, and accessible, complimentary WIFI. Our homestays are located in safe, gated neighborhoods in close proximity to emergency services including: major hospitals, police stations, government embassies, and Nairobi International Airport.
We also offer luxury boutique hotels while staying in the capital city of Nairobi. Our guests can select unique accommodations to best suit their needs. Another perfect place to unwind and relax following a day of exploration and discovery.
The journey begins by getting to know one’s host family ahead of time through video chats. This allows you to feel relaxed and confident, having met and spoken to your host family prior to arrival. Upon touchdown, their familiar bright smiles and warm hugs will welcome you as part of the family!
In addition to meeting one’s host family, video chats also include members of SKYIN’s Advanced Operations team helping guests prepare for their upcoming excursion. Whether managing expectations regarding the itinerary or pre-travel requirements (visas, immunizations, currency exchange, etc.), our resources are here to support and guide you throughout your entire adventure.
The lure of Kenya’s white sandy beaches is an enchanting destination. Coconut palm trees sway in the breeze as warm water ripples under your feet. Adventures to local islands bespoke a sailing experience on traditional dhow boats uncovering the vibrant marine life through snorkeling and scuba diving excursions. Historical expeditions to ancient slave caves and archaic ruins tell the enduring stories of ancestors who have gone before.
