Ombeni African Safaris was founded 12 years ago to a serve dream. When 19-year old Ombeni Pallangyo graduated from Nairobi Institute with a conservation, tourism and hotel management degree, he had a plan. Ombeni wanted to share his love for Africa with his American friends while gathering funds to help his home village at the foot of Mount Meru. By now, everyone who has taken a safari with Ombeni African Safaris has fallen in love with Africa. Ombeni’s touch is magical: he makes every safari feel an authentic, life-changing experience. Through the years, Ombeni Foundation has provided fresh drinking water, food, school supplies, shoes, and medical support to thousands of villagers. Currently, Ombeni is building a health center and continues to support Sorongoro Primary School, where his own story began on bare feet, running seven miles to school every day. We will make a difference in your life and the lives of African people.
