Secondary school students from Thanet called their trip to Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve a "dream come true.".
Presenter and wildlife expert Steve Backshall provided the funding for the seven-day journey.
The six students went on safari, went to a facility for the conservation of rhinos and elephants, and interacted with Maasai villagers.
One of the country's ten most impoverished regions is Thanet.
Deadly 60, which Steve Backshall hosts for BBC, is his most well-known work. He claimed that going on his first safari in Africa transformed his life.
I wanted to give that chance to some kids who would not have otherwise had it, he said.
Students from Hartsdown Academy in Margate and King Ethelbert School in Birchington-on-Sea make up the group.
As lions are her favorite animal, Saffi declared that seeing them in the wild was "a dream come true.".
It was beyond anything I'd ever imagined, she continued, and I was really excited to see them.
The students also had the opportunity to see zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, crocodiles, hippos, gazelles, and wildebeest.
Meeting Maasai women and children was "eye-opening," according to Kienna.
She continued, "You don't get to experience what they do; it's completely different for them, and they're so appreciative for what they have.
