What our Clients say

The trip to Lake Turkana that I undertook with TEKWA was one of the most impressive tours I’ve ever took. It was just the right mixture of culture, adventure, and a bit of unpretentious luxury from time to time. For me it was the perfect way of exploring Northern Kenya. Christoph, Germany.

Nach fast 2 Jahren als Expat in Kenia habe ich Ostern 2018 die „Cultural Tour to the Cradle of Mankind“ bei Therese gebucht. Ich wollte nach all den Nationalpark und Strandbesuchen, die man auch als Tourist so macht, etwas mehr von dem Land und der Kultur Kenias kennenlernen. Es war ein voller Erfolg! Die traumhafte Landschaft und die unterschiedlichsten Kulturen in den verschiedenen Stämmen, waren Eindrücke die ich nie vergessen werde. Danke Therese, dass ich das erleben durfte und auch für deine informativen, interessanten, teilweise witzigen und immer sehr kompetenten Vorträge die die ganze Fahrt begleitet und abgerundet haben.

Went on a tour to Lake Turkana with Therese and her most competent team, and it was worth every second. I was fascinated by the barren landscape up north and by the people Therese so aptly introduced us to. Much more than an expedition into an unfamiliar region of Kenya, the trip provided me with an insight into the harsh living conditions of the various tribes of the area and installed a feeling of great respect for these people. Thank you for introducing me to this world, Therese!

With great pleasure we remember our first Trip with Therese to Lake Turkana in 2012. We can only agree with Kathy…its the best and only way to experience and enjoy an unique and extraordinary journey.

 “Just back from a great family tour up north!”

October, 10, 2019

We are just back from another exciting tour up north. This time we took a family with three youngsters (7/9/12) up to Loiyangalani and followed their personal wishes via North Horr, Kalacha and the Chalbi Desert to Samburu.

Especially the kids enjoyed the truck, the camels, the dunes and the game and were mesmerized and impressed by the many different ways of living and surviving, the colourful fashions, the happiness expressed by the children despite of little and drought and the fact that King Football reigns in El Molo and North Horr just as much as at home in Switzerland – and not only among the boys but also among the girls!
