My experience in Thika was great. William took really good care of us and the communication with him it's always easy and so nice. He will work his best to make you feel home. The food is good, and the accommodation it's nice too. I'll hardly recommend going there when the raining season it's over since it's more difficult to work with the kids when it's raining. But if you enjoy working with kids, you want to get to know a little bit more about Africa, and you are open mind, that might be your place. Do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information!
Me sentí cómoda en la casa de William. Maria cocina muy bien y es atenta. Por lo demás, sobre el tipo d experiencia, creo q tiene q ver con las expectativas d cada uno. Yo fui con muchas ganas d ayudar y hacer cosas con una amiga médica pero a ninguna d las dos se nos dio el lugar ni las herramientas para hacerlo. Me hubiera gustado un ambiente d más cooperación y compañerismo. Si me contactan les puedo contar más! William siempre me trató bien, pero varias veces hizo comentarios desubicados y poco serios.
A pesar de todo, los chicos son lo más y la rompen!
Una gran experiencia, fue un mes y poco y paso volando!! La verdad que fue muy enriquecedor y repetiría sin duda. Recomiendo llevar dinero ya que siempre salen gastos secundarios de transporte y demás, pero si os gusta el fútbol, los niños, la enseñanza y aprender inglés, no lo dudéis!
We give value, and give the best experience back. We treat you as a king/queen. A visitor in an African homestead is, indeed, a King/queen. We endeavour to give you the best out of your stay with us, each day, each minute!About the host
