N&H Crystals and Mine Kenya Tour 2019


                                 
   Kenya Crystals and Gems Mine Tour Overview


Join us on an epic adventure in Kenya and let us show you a different side of Africa, not the Africa you see in the media but the adventurous, beautiful, wild and real Africa we know and love.


Kenya is an incredible country to discover with beautiful landscapes, friendly people, world class safari and some of the most beautiful beaches you’ve ever laid eyes on!

N&H Crystals and Mine  tours are culturally immersive trips created by us to show you a rounded portrayal of the country you visit and leave you with new beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

We work with the best local operators to provide you with the highly personalised Kenyan adventure you’ve always dreamed of but without the hassle of planning it all yourself!


N&H Crystals and Mine tours aren’t typical ‘tours’. They’re fun and laid-back small group trips, that are similar to an independent backpacking trip, but with some free time to explore and do your own thing and a group of friends built in – the best of both worlds!

“I had the best time ever on the trip & it was so much fun traveling with you! It was everything I had hoped for and more! It 100% met my expectations. I love the fact that your trips are more unique than a normal tour operator. I enjoyed being taken out of my comfort zone in some places and seeing some really different sides of Kenya. I enjoyed the fact that we were made to feel so at home everywhere we went and I’m sure that was helped by the fact you’ve obviously created a lot of meaningful relationships in the country during your time travelling and doing business there. I think you make a fantastic guide and your passion for the country definitely shows and adds to the experience.” (Aisha, Canada – N&H Crystals & Mine Tour 2017)

“Awesome trip.  It was 10 days and they flew by so fast but everyday was great. I love the many foodie spots you took us too an I loved meeting your friends and family.  I felt like I was back home and that made me feel very special. The adventures will be remembered for a lifetime and I will be back" (Bassel, Canada N&H Crystals and Mine Tour 2016)
