Tanzania – Safari and Service

Jambo?

That is how to greet a stranger in Swahili. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will explore the culture and beautiful nature of Tanzania. The 9 day-trip will include authentic cultural interactions including a visit to a traditional Masai Boma (mud hut compound) and plenty of time to explore the African wild, including a safari in the Nogorongoro Crater, a World Heritage Site and an optional volcano trek. We will also engage in a service opportunity with a local school which will be designed based on the interests and skills of the students on the trip. In preparation for the trip, students will learn Swahili customs, language and ways of life. They will also learn some history and about the natural landscape of this unique and peaceful country. Most importantly students will learn how their engagement with and service to others can enhance not only the lives of those on the other side of the world, but their own lives as well.

Meet the students and faculty.
For their introductions, we asked students to complete this statement: “The 2019 Tanzania LEAP course was the best ever because…” Listen to their responses.”
