At Chigo Tours Africa, we believe in giving back to the community and or creating a difference in local people’s lives – people who stay close to these tour sites – so we incorporate volunteer or community development programs (on request) for a client willing to teach a skill to or share knowledge with the local people. Projects include but are not limited to computer literacy trainings, supporting orphanages, clean water projects etc. Such programs give a richer if not more satisfying experience while making a difference in people’s lives.
