Kenya is a country that can be found on every animal lover’s travel bucket list. Its abundance of wildlife is something you need to experience first-hand to believe it. Countless tour operators tempt you to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime nature safari with them – and yes, you should give in to the temptation.

While you travel, let us plant trees for you. It helps the environment, the local population, and it doesn’t cost you a single Cent. Here is why and where we are reforesting Kenya.

Why We Are Reforesting Kenya

31% of the world’s land mass are covered in forest (Earth Policy Institute, 2012). Kenya, however, is a country with as little as 1.7% forest cover (Information Cradle).

This makes Kenya one of the least forested countries in the world. Tanzania, Kenya’s direct neighbor, boasts a forest cover of about 40%.

Time to do something about it! (About reforesting Kenya. Let’s not chop down trees in Tanzania.)

In addition to increasing the forest cover in Kenya, which the entire planet benefits from, reforesting Kenya has various others environmental and social benefits to it.

Environmental Benefits of Reforesting Kenya

One fact to bear in mind when booking your holidays in Kenya: All land-based animals in the country depend on trees to survive. Whether you’re looking out for rhinos, lions, cheetahs, giraffes or majestic elephants – none of these species would survive without trees. No trees -> no life -> no wildlife safaris.

Which is why we took to reforesting Kenya in autumn 2018. Besides planting trees for tuskers, our reforestation efforts benefit a huge variety of wildlife, including lions, rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, antelopes, giraffes and whole lot of others. (Take a look at our world map to find out how many trees we have planted in Kenya to date.)

Furthermore, trees prevent land erosion, and are hence the most efficient weapon against desertification. And, even better, planting trees brings along several social benefits as well.

Social Benefits of Reforesting Kenya

Not just the Kenyan environment benefits from our reforestation efforts. In good old B’n’Tree tradition we ensure the local community profits from our engagement as well. When planting trees in Kenya, we mainly work with volunteers such as scholars on environment-focused master studies. We also include local schools in our reforestation projects, to educate the youngest in our society on the importance of the environment and nature conservation.

To facilitate the realization, we have partnered with Seedballs Kenya and the Land & Life Foundation to coordinate our reforestation projects. Thanks to being supported by the Elewana Collection and Cheli & Peacock Safaris, the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation and Minor International, Land & Life Foundation works on 0% overhead. 100% of all donations go directly to the supported schools and communities.

Where in Kenya B’n’Tree Plants Trees

In cooperation with the Land & Life foundation, B’n’Tree is reforesting areas in and around Nairobi as well as the Masai Mara.

You surely have heard of the Masai Mara as wildlife watcher’s paradise, haven’t you? Thanks to your fabulous support for B’n’Tree we can ensure it remains that way for years and decades to come.

Reforesting Nairobi helps to reduce air pollution, decrease the Earth’s surface temperature in and around the city and create a greener, healthier place to live for millions of people.
