Company & Product Range
Integritour, Kenya is a Kenyan company, employing local people and sharing its revenue with local community groups and affiliated NGOs.
Together with the Ministry of Tourism, the Lake Basin Development Agency, and a large number of local community groups in Kisumu, Integritour has developed a rich portfolio of day-trips, tours and travel experiences which can be tailor-made to a group or individual’s interests, as well as combined together for a more intense, holiday-package experience. Proceeds from many of these tours go directly to the community groups involved, with overall business revenues shared with our NGO partners.
Kisumu, the main town in western Kenya is already a mere hop, skip and jump from Nairobi (c. 25 minute internal flight) and less than a half day drive from Masai Mara, plus Kisumu airport will shortly open for international flights.
Integritour’s revenue is ploughed back into the local economy with profits shared with our local NGO and community-group partners. As such, all sales contribute directly towards life-changing, sustainable local projects, including many health and educational initiatives.
Integritour was founded in 2010 by Jessica Butcher, a UK volunteer at Ogra Foundation (a Kenya-based NGO) duringthe last six months of 2010.
With a professional career in the travel industry back in the UK, and as a result of her own hugely enjoyable and revelatory touring experiences in Western Kenya she recognised the unique opportunity to build the region’s first professional and responsible tour company in conjunction with Ogra Foundation.
