Explore one of the most diverse regions in Africa and trace centuries of migration and change. In Tanzania, you’ll see incredible wildlife communities in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire National Park. Trips to famous World Heritage Sites will give you a glimpse of the past two million years.

For most of the semester, students live in homestays near Arusha, a large city that serves as the starting point for treks to Mt. Kilimanjaro and safaris in northern Tanzania. Whether you’re in Arusha or in the field, you will hear different languages spoken every day by people who come from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

During your time in Tanzania, enjoy the lush forests under Mt. Meru, become a seasoned traveler by taking dala dala rides through the city’s busy streets, and see wildlife up close during a safari trip. In Tanzania, new and unexpected discoveries are just waiting to be made.
