Tanzania is one of Africa’s most varied countries and offers schools a diverse and stimulating destination, whatever length of trip you are considering.
Africa’s Rift Valley and associated lakes, plains and volcanoes are a stunning setting for any adventure, but a visit to Tanzania is so much more than just the scenery and wildlife. It is an absorbing immersion into a country with vibrant music, dance and markets, and a rich cultural heritage. Experiencing the colourful Massai and their traditional ways is a highlight of any trip and it may be possible to arrange a project phase in a Massai village enabling the pupils to experience how this unique tribe live a still largely traditional lifestyle.
For an active phase to the trip, trekking is the obvious choice for Tanzania. With its many mountains and volcanoes and numerous trekking options in terms of length, difficulty and altitude, teams are spoilt for choice.
