Tanzania will change the way you understand the world. Home to Africa's highest peak (Kilimanjaro) and the famously wildlife-packed Ngorongoro Crater, savannah and rainforests, Tanzania has much to offer to visitors and inhabitants alike.
You will not only become skilled in navigating the unique equatorial environment, but you will also become familiar with those who call it home. From the cultural opportunities of traveling with a local liaison to spending extended time with Tanzanian families, you will get to know this country on a deeper level.
A NOLS course in East Africa will take you far from the tourist track of luxury lodges and European chefs as you explore the real Africa on the ground, backpacking and camping. The people you travel with will only enrich your experience. A cultural liaison will blend his or her local knowledge with the expertise of your NOLS instructors, who are trained to U.S. standards and are the best in the industry.
You'll also get to know the fauna that calls this region home. On your safari section you'll focus your binoculars on baboons and zebras and your brain on zoology, geography, and conservation.
Develop your leadership and outdoor skills, meet new people, and discover new cultures while exploring this diverse region of East Africa with NOLS.
