Limiri Travels:

George Limiri will be your escort for this trip.  Limiri Travels Co-Founder George Kinyua Limiri, was born and raised in the rural areas of Kenya. He moved to the United States more than a decade ago where he met his wife Mekenze and now together they have 3 children.  Michelle met them a couple of years ago and they became friends immediately.

The Limiri family had the chance to visit Kenya for two months during the summer of 2016 where George was able to reunite with his family and introduce his wife and children to his many relatives for the first time as well as explore many parts of Kenya together. Needless to say, everyone fell in love with the country, the people, and the culture! They decided to combine their passion for travel and their love of Africa and turn it into an experience that they can share with others and so Limiri Travels was born!  They moved from Utah back to Kenya in 2019 and are working hard to improve the lives of their family, neighbors and fellow Kenyans through tourism, agriculture and more.

We know that Limiri Travels will provide you with the “bucket-list” experience that you imagine when it comes to exploring Africa!
