Excursions & Travel

A safari through Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater will expose you to the different wildlife that call Tanzania home. During the two-week safari, you’ll also visit major ecological and paleoanthropological field sites in northern Tanzania. Laetoli, for example, contains ancient footprints preserved in layers of volcanic sediment. Venturing further in the Great Rift Valley, you’ll see Olduvai Gorge, the famous spot where archaeologists discovered fossilized remains of early humans, including skulls and stone tools.

Several overnight visits to Engikaret, a village north of Arusha, will expose you to the Maasai culture. You'll stay in the cultural "boma" settlements and contribute to ongoing projects in the community.
