Safari N Side Gigs Kenya Edition May 2024

7 DAYS

What do safaris and side gigs have in common?

They both create the adventure of a lifetime, and that’s why we’ve decided to combine the two to bring you Safari N Side Gigs!

If you’re ready to finally treat yourself to that amazing African Safari you’ve been dreaming about for years, and you wish you could dedicate the time and energy to start a side gig already; this is the trip for you. 

You’ll leave behind the daily stressors and obligations, so you can clear your mind and give yourself the freedom to connect with what you truly want in your life. You’ll immerse yourself in a fresh new environment, so you can tap into your creative thinking and develop your best ideas. And let’s not forget, you’ll have a blast. 

Step into a new habitat on an African safari, connect with like-minded professionals, and learn from dental industry leaders who will help you take a deep dive into starting your side gig.

But wait!There’s more.
Does the thought of spending 24-hours fidgeting your way through a long international flight sound daunting? Not to mention, a flight to Africa can get pretty expensive, right?
 
We’ve partnered with MilesMentor to help you learn how you can travel to Africa for FREE using points. They have created an on-demand training course with monthly live Q&A sessions specifically for us. They will teach you how to travel to Africa in style, while saving thousands of dollars!

Maurice, et al. were very accommodating and always available! They made this trip so wonderful with all the events we had planned! And even if things didn’t go as planned, you weren’t lost in the mix. I can’t say enough how incredible this was and very valuable to be able to take my 7 year old daughter! I am so excited to go on more adventures with Safari N Smiles!

I have always wanted to go on a dental mission trip to Kenya. When I learned about Safari N Smiles, I immediately knew this was the organization I would want to travel with. It may sound cliché, but this was a life-changing trip. The trip was well organized with a comprehensive plan. If you are looking for a relaxing trip, this is not the trip for you. We were constantly on the move. Every minute spent in Kenya was meticulously planned (thank you Morris and Lizzie). Upon arrival, we were greeted by some locals and staff who were incredibly welcoming. In fact, they made us feel like we were part of their community/family. The hospitality was unlike anything I have ever experienced. We toured most of Kenya and its breathtaking landscapes, visiting many cities/towns, toured a coffee farm, and got to drink delicious Kenyan coffee. Drove in a comfortable land rover throughout our journey, going on 11 game drives we were able to see jaw-dropping wildlife in their natural habitat. We fed giraffes in a sanctuary, saw flamingos in Nakuru National Park, interacted with the Maasai people, cycled and hiked through Hell’s Gate National Park, went on a hot air balloon ride over the safari (with a beautiful champagne breakfast following), took multiple CE courses, and most importantly provided dental care and education to underserved people who otherwise would go without. The gratitude and appreciation of the people that we helped was truly amazing. I would highly recommend traveling with Safari N Smiles, it truly exceeded my expectations. In fact, I’m already planning for the next adventure!

We had a great time with Morris and Lizzie on this trip. My sister is the dentist that found the trip for us and brought the whole family along for the ride. It was truly a once in a lifetime trip with so many great people.

Zero regrets! I took my 13 year old daughter and made memories that will last a lifetime. Not once did she complain about not enough access to WiFi or internet (it was surprisingly available and if you have children you know what I’m talking about). It’s amazing what experiences the world has to offer if we can just look up long enough to recognize them. She spent half a day blowing up balloons for the kids while we did the dental work and realized how easily happiness comes circumstantially. The world needs more of people like Morris and Lizzie enabling the rest of us to see AND to serve. I will travel with them again!

Wonderful, inspiring materials that helped me get even more excited about the safari. “Tent” will never have the same meaning again. Like living in a dream The drivers were stupendous. Our driver was an incredible tracker with insights and intuition that clearly comes from years of experience. Safarinsmiles is truly an exceptional company with exceptional people … exceptional attention to detail. The level of customer service from Safarinsmiles staff is unparalleled. They are instantly warm and friendly; connecting with everyone they meet like old friends reuniting. The safari experience was exceptional and provided memories we will cherish for a lifetime
