Embark on the adventure of a lifetime on this amazing program that combines meaningful service projects with awe-inspiring safaris, unique cultural encounters, and some of the world's most stunning beaches. You will leave Tanzania with enough memories to last a lifetime...or until Africa calls you back for more adventures!
Hakuna matata and a warm welcome to Tanzania! Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as we travel into the heart of this stunning country to get a true taste of African culture and community enrichment. We will get to know the country like locals as we embark on a week-long cultural exchange with a local school for girls, participating in activities with them as we grow to learn about both ourselves and our new friends. Together with our host students, we will participate in community enrichment projects, such as spending time with children at a local orphanage and learning about sustainable farming techniques.
As we head up north, we’ll learn how to live the rustic, African way of life as we spend our days in the bush viewing wild game and our nights camping under the clear, starry skies. Our encounters with local tribes will give us valuable insights into how people have existed in the area for thousands of years and the many ways that they continue to preserve their cultures today.
No trip to Tanzania is really complete without a visit to the idyllic island of Zanzibar! We will finish this epic adventure learning about the completely different cultures that live peacefully side by side while enjoying the picturesque beaches and ocean that surround this one of a kind island. When it’s time to leave, you’ll be able to say, “asante sana,” Tanzania, knowing that you have shared with her just as much as she has with you.
