Grow your cultural understanding and wilderness skills on this two-week expedition. For this course, you’ll join a motivated group of adults to learn about leadership and other cultures as you travel on foot through Tanzania’s rainforests, savannah, and remote villages. See some of the world’s richest wildlife havens in the Ngorongoro Crater. Challenge yourself physically as you wander Tanzania’s volcanic highlands. Spend time with the Maasai and Bushmen people learning about their culture, history, and the area’s ecology.
In addition to this course’s cultural and outdoor opportunities, you’ll also focus on leadership. Challenging hiking days are opportunities to improve tolerance for adversity. Communication skills come into play as you and your group make decisions about your route or where to camp. Each day, you’ll fill a different leadership role and focus on developing your own leadership style. By the end of this course, you’ll leave with a new perspective on your place in the world and relationship to the people in it.
