Tanzania Service Expedition

Explore Tanzania through service and cultural exchange

Combine your hunger for travel with your commitment to helping others. On this course, you’ll visit Tanzania’s iconic sites, travel through stunning forests and savannah, and spend time living with a Tanzanian family. Wake up to flamingo calls in the Olduvai Gorge, and at night dream about the zebras and giraffes you saw while hiking through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Maasai warriors will be your cultural liaisons as you visit rural villages, practicing speaking Kiswahili and learning about different ways of life. You’ll be more than a tourist as you travel on foot each day and set up your own camp each night.

When you spend time living with a Tanzanian family, you will do meaningful service projects and participate in family life, not just observe it. You’ll finish this course as someone ready to be a thoughtful international traveler, wilderness explorer, and, most importantly, a leader in your community.
