Location & Facilities

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 in the community of Usa River, a 30-minute drive from Arusha, which serves as the starting point for treks to Mt. Kilimanjaro and safaris in Northern Tanzania.

During your time in Tanzania, enjoy the lush forests under Mt. Meru, become adept at taking dala dala rides into the busy tourist center of Arusha, and see wildlife up close during the field excursions. In Tanzania, new and unexpected discoveries are just waiting to be made.
