African Safaris That Are Fueling Local Communities

Denise Carnihan runs Helping Hand African Tours & Safaris - her business connects guests to authentic experiences in Africa.

Denise's journey began with volunteer work in Africa, where she witnessed the amazing efforts transforming lives in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Her passion led her to start a unique tour business, taking people on eye-opening journeys to showcase these impactful projects.

Tune in to hear her remarkable story, the challenges she overcame, and the joy she found in making a difference. But that's not all – Denise's tour company doesn't just create unforgettable experiences; it's a powerful tool for generating awareness and funding for her latest project: a school for underprivileged kids in the outskirts of Nairobi.
