Imagine travelling to a new country with 15 awesome & like-minded strangers-turned-family and a community manager that knows the area and it’s best kept secrets. You can work during the day surrounded by monkeys...and the ocean breeze. When you have a chance to escape work, there are a ton of activities to choose from and a group ready to experience new things... Yoga, fitness, cultural impact activities, parties, fam dinners, beach days, scuba diving - there’s something for everyone on a Noma trip. The best part is the the group of people that quickly become friends for life...the coordinators that put their heart and soul into ensuring you have the best possible experience. If you’re considering the Kenya edition, just book it now and I promise you won’t regret it.

I booked the Kenya edition on a whim just a week before the program and it was the BEST decision I ever possibly could have made. The location, the community and the support from Noma was amazing - it was just the right amount of 'hands on' vs. letting you find your groove and we were offered amazing experiences both in the local community and in bonding with the Noma crew. I have traveled with other travel programs before and this was hands down the best of the experiences I have had.

From barbecues with a local family, to meeting a traditional healer, to jumping off a traditional sailboat into bioluminescent waters, to dancing the night away under the ancient baobabs; our experience is impossible to put into words but I'll say it was life changing in many ways. I learned more about myself in one month than I have in 30 years thanks to the mindful, connected, inspired experiences we had along the way.
