“The Kenya Experience blew away my expectations…Truly a trip of a lifetime”

Brady, USA

We provide an action packed itinerary in the inspirational setting of Iten; Kenya’s ‘Home of Champions’ in the lush Great Rift Valley. Outside of our organised activities there will be plenty of time to relax and recover in the beautiful surroundings the HATC training centre, and to explore the local area.
