Tanzania Wilderness - Prime

Explore Tanzania’s landscape and culture

Grow your cultural understanding and outdoor skills. On this two-week expedition, you’ll join a group of peers 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 in the Ngorongoro Crater. Challenge yourself physically as you wander Tanzania’s volcanic highlands. Listen carefully as you spend time with the Maasai, Bushmen, Chaga, and Meru people learning about their culture, history, and the area’s ecology. Fall asleep listening to flamingos call and wake up to start a new day of hiking and honing your outdoor skills.

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 where to camp. Each day, you’ll fill a different leadership role and focus on developing your own leadership style. This course is for adventurous individuals eager to learn from other cultures in a remote setting. You’ll leave with a new perspective on your place in the world and relationship to the people in it.
