Physical, Medical, and Dietary Considerations:

  • Must be able to work long days;
  • Must be able to walk a mile on moderately rough, hilly surface;
  • Some roads are very curvy, if you are prone to motion sickness in a vehicle, you must manage it;
  • Meat is an important part of many African cultures. We can accommodate vegetarian but not vegan alternatives. We cannot guarantee that your food has never been in contact with meat products, nuts, or nut products;
  • We will not always be near quality medical facilities. If you have a condition that may require rapid medical attention, this is not the program for you.
