There is a big reason why we are called “The little camp that cares”.
Kulalu Camp is situated in a remote part of the Tsavo region, The Galana Conservancy, which is also home to the once nomadic Watha tribe. Isolated from health facilities in a harsh landscape much of our work is to assist the local communities in medical care and food security. Eric, Tina and Sue have set up Danisa health clinic, and they also target what we call “The Hidden Children”; disabled children who suffer from medical conditions that prevent them from receiving education. Fatuma is just one of our success cases and has attended a special hospital, Port Reiz in Mombasa.
For Gai food security is a way of life; self-sustainable living and permaculture methods are the teachings that she shares with the local communities. Having resilience though tough times such as that of draught and feeding challenges, are fundamental to the communities long term welfare. Kulalu Camp has its own permaculture garden which grows some of the fresh produce you will find on your plates. It is important to share this knowledge with the local communities and so Gai is keen to teach and help those around the camp itself.
We don’t limit ourselves to the bush, the beach also comes under our gaze (due to the close proximity), alongside the young and talented marine mammal scientist and ocean guardian Michael Mwang’ombe with Watamu Marine Association and the Kenya Marine Mammal Network. We have helped Michael further his marine education at a specialised USA dolphin health facility Sarasota Dolphin Center, and continue to support his research projects focused on endangered species and humpback whales.
