How it Works with MedTreks Kenya Medical Trip:
Most people who make the trek to Kenya, want to do some type of Kenyan adventure while they are there and we highly recommend that you do! After severals years of running trips to Kenya, we have been able to select the most authentic and affordable experiences with excellent local guides.
MedTreks offers two separate options for Kenyan adventures as part of the
MedTreks Kenya Global Health Trip:

Coastal Post-Trip Extension Retreat in Diani Beach, Kenya
You are welcome to do one or both as optional extensions to your MedTreks Kenya Trip.
MedTreks Kenya participants who wish to go on this 4 day Beach Retreat after the MedTreks Kenya trip will be picked up on the final morning of your stay for the MedTreks Kenya Trip in Chogoria, Kenya. You will be accompanied by a MedTreks guide throughout the entire time. Our drivers will take you directly to Nairobi Airport where you will take a short, less than 1 hr flight to Diani beach. Our group is greeted by the friendly resort staff and we are transferred a short 10 minute drive to our waterfront resort. You have the afternoon to relax, enjoy a sunset cocktail and then a Welcome dinner begins your retreat in paradise. You have earned it. We are thrilled to offer this experience as part of MedTreks Kenya. We haven’t had a single person arrive to this tropical location and said “wow, I had no idea this was in Kenya!” … we love sharing the incredible gems of this country with our guests. It is well worth the extra few days.

The Kenyan coastline is an undiscovered gem. Located on the Indian Ocean, the tropical shores of Diani Beach are known for it’s white sand and turquoise warm waters.
Our home for this coastal retreat is a secrete, magical & waterfront resort…WaterLovers. WaterLovers is a quaint beach resort that is the perfect combination of luxurious comfort with exotic charm & world-class cuisine. This is truly an indulgent experience. We also chose this resort because of their commitment to responsible travel & eco-travel.
An experience like no other…dine beneath a star-filled night sky in an 100,000 year old cave. The Ali Barbour’s Cave Restaurant is situation 10 meters below ground in an ancient, naturally sculpted coral cave open to the sky. The restaurant serves international cuisine specializing in seafood and world-class wine. ” To see the stars and moon through an open ceiling (in a cave) while you enjoy a good glass of wine and an excellent platter of seafood makes this a highlight to remember..”
