Is it safe?
The team at Maasai Molar work closely with our in-country partners to keep informed of any security issues. During the trip you will be accompanied by a local host and team leader at all times. Despite the safety of Aitong, you are advised not to wander off and keep to issued timetables.
Do I need a visa?
Each country has its own visa requirements, most countries can apply online in advance. Maasai Molar can advise you, but you should check your own visa requirements at http://evisa.go.ke/evisa.html
How much does the trip cost?
The trip is a total of $1600 (excluding flights), this covers transport to and from Nairobi, hotel accommodation (based on 2 sharing), 3 meals a day, soft drinks & water, passes to the Maasai Mara National Park, Maasai Village experience and celebratory meal in Nairobi before departure.
What isn’t included: Flights, Travel insurance, vaccinations/malarial prophylaxis and spending money. Maasai Molar can advise on flight times, for your medical requirements you should consult with a travel clinic.
What will the accommodation be like?
We are lucky to partner with a local hotel, which is clean, comfortable and like a family away from home!
What will the clinic be like?
We set up the mobile clinic in the health centre at Aitong, it is basic, but clean and the staff are amazing. You will be carrying out duties similar to home, hygiene-based treatment, extractions, simple restorations and health education.
We also visit the local schools to carry out health education, you are encouraged to team up and produce fun, interactive lessons together.
What will I be doing during the week?
We work hard, but also have days out into the Maasai Mara National Park where if we are lucky we will see the famous “Big 5”, visit a traditional Maasai Village, visit to Aitong for market day and learn about the work the Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancy organisation are doing to preserve this naturally beautiful land.
Where can I fly from?
Anywhere in The World! We will have teams joining from the UK, UAE, USA, Canada, Egypt and more…. We must be ready to leave Nairobi by 11am on the first day. If you need to arrive the day before we can recommend a hotel close to the airport.
How am I going to pay for this?
There is no limit to using your imagination! How about a bake sale? Sell those too-high heels on ebay, do a sponsored silence, engage your patients into some fundraising or ask your clinic to support you.
We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to ask any questions ” 😊
