Tanzania

Safaris and service in eastern Africa

Our two-week intersession in Tanzania began with a day trip to the Materuni waterfalls, where we visited a local farm to learn about the importance of coffee to Tanzania’s economy before making the 30-minute hike to the falls themselves. Next, we spent four days aiding in the construction of a new school for local students, digging its foundation and ensuring that the children of Moshi would have a quality place in which to learn for years to come.

Our trip also included a visit to the fertile Pare Mountains, where we learned about the traditions and cultures of Tanzania’s indigenous population. After enjoying a tranquil night of camping at Lake Chala, we headed to Tarangire National Park for an authentic African safari, complete with lions, zebras, elephants, giraffes, and hippos. Our 12th graders’ time in Tanzania included an incredible challenge, perhaps the most daunting undertaking of their high school career: climbing to the Uhuru peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
