what you'll do
Grab a friend who loves to go wild, because we’re sending you on a life-changing adventure in Kenya! We’re talking getting breakfast with (and maybe even a kiss from) giraffes, exploring the magic of Nairobi, and witnessing the wildlife in Samburu on a safari tailor-made just for you by The Safari Collection. You’ll befriend baby elephants at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You’ll learn about the importance of giraffe conservation over a tea-time talk. You’ll soak in mind-blowing views of the Samburu region on a safari, followed by an actual soak in your personal plunge pool. And that giraffe kiss we mentioned? Make sure to pucker up at feeding time (put food in your mouth and they'll kiss you for it)! Flights (to Kenya and domestic transfers), meals, and accommodations at Giraffe Manor and Sasaab included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

Winner Confirmation Process:
Within 10 business days of campaign close, we’ll use an automated random drawing process to draw a potential winner(s) for that campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then take place to ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner and, if applicable, their guest(s) agree to cooperate fully with Omaze in Omaze conducting any background check(s), which includes providing information requested by Omaze including, but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. If the Prize includes meeting a celebrity, meeting a public figure, or attending a special event and any background check indicates, in Omaze’s sole discretion, that the potential winner or the potential winner’s guest(s) pose a danger to or may harm the reputation of any person or entity involved in the sweepstakes, Omaze may disqualify said winner and move on to the next randomly drawn potential winner. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, an Omaze representative will notify the potential winner via email and/or phone. The potential winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Omaze may move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the winner, Omaze may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that’s done, the potential winner and guest(s) must execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze, you will forfeit the Prize and Omaze will move on to another randomly drawn potential winner.
Travel companions are also required to sign a liability/publicity release prior to issuance of tickets. Additionally, travel companions/guests of the winner may be subject to a background check, which may impact their ability to participate in the Prize.
NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited.
At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.
Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the Designated Grantee . The organizations can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*Omaze also invests in securing the prizes for the typical certain Omaze Owned campaigns like this one, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is passed directly through to CAFA 15 cents is retained by CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated Designated Grantee. If there are multiple charities, Designated Grantees then grants of equal share are made to each Designated Grantee. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you (these campaigns require more significant marketing efforts by Omaze and do not rely (or rely to a much smaller degree) on the work and name of celebrities to help raise awareness and promote the campaign). The remaining amount of your dollar, approximately 15 cents of your dollar goes to Omaze—it’s used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.
The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
