Many of us have never realized that traveling is not something we are all good at, its like breathing, its something we do. Most people usually do the routine travel from home to work, shopping, or visiting a friend.
There is more to travelling than the routine travel. Getting away from our comfort zones or beating the alternative (staying home) and going to an alternative destination away from the routine.
We have compiled for you some of the reasons as to why travelling is good for you.
- Traveling is easier than you think.
We believe that traveling around the world shouldn’t be hard: it’s actually something everyone should be able to do at least once in their lives. Whether you choose to spend a few years or just a couple months traveling this beautiful planet, it’s important to see what’s out there. It’s up to you to make the dream come true and take the first step.
- Travel opens your eyes.
If you’re open and willing, travel will make you an incredibly more well-rounded human being. And that’s really the goal, isn’t it? If you don’t know where to start, check out our packages or upcoming events and lets move you.

People you meet while on the road become some of the most valued names on your contact list. They become places on the map to visit later on.

- Traveling develops skills you didn’t know you had
Sometimes it’s only far from home that you realize you’ve got skills you’ve never used. It’s travel that brings them to the surface and makes you smile, satisfied to have reached the mountain top, or even to have successfully ordered a meal at a rural/local restaurant.

There’s something satisfying about being able to throw around a few Maasai words, knowing how to say thanks in Kikuyu, pulling out that that difficult word in Kalenjin, or simply hearing a language you didn’t know you would be interested in before.
- Travel means adventure
Zip-lining over the jungle canopy in The Forest, successfully navigating the maze-like streets of Venice, bartering for the best price in the traditional Maasai/City Market, visiting a snake park in your local museum just to test your fears, or hopping in a Land Rover and heading out for a game drive in the national park: these are adventures worth having. People are hardwired for the excitement of adventure and travel may just be the best way to tap into it.

Meeting people from different cultures, traditions and religions will teach you that the way you’ve been looking at the world isn’t the way everybody else does.

If you’re between jobs, schools, kids, or relationships, around the local/world travel can be a perfect way to move from one of these life stages into your next great adventure.

Getting your daily drink at the same place and staring at your screen at your eight-to-five every day not nearly interesting enough? Even if you choose to work on the road (and keep staring at the screen), you’ll have to find a new place to drink your coffee/beer, and depending on your destination, finding coffee, and foamy milk or a good place to sip them could prove to be a sizeable challenge. Travel is full of moments of joy and challenges. Overcoming the challenges gives you some of the greatest joys of all.
