For those seeking a different kind of tour and not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get messy, then why not indulge in an agricultural voluntary adventure to a small coffee farm based in Kinyui in Machakos County. Experience Rural Life and Coffee Farming in Kenya while you live like the locals and learn the culture of the Akamba People. The Akamba are the fifth largest tribe of the 42 tribes in Kenya and they were originally Long Distance Traders in the early centuries who used to engage in trade between the Kenyan Inland and the Kenya Coast.

Today, they are mostly engaged in farming and handicraft economic activities. Small scale Coffee Farmers do not earn much from their crop and your volunteering will positively impact the farmer of this small scale coffee farm by providing an extra sources of income through agricultural tourism to sustain the farm and daily needs. There is also a possibility to extend your volunteer program.
