Tanzania: Women to Women Cultural Exchange
Activity Level: Mildly Active
Join us for a cultural and wildlife safari that presents an extraordinary opportunity to experience life and the land through the eyes of a Tanzanian woman.
Everyone is welcome on this exclusive safari, hosted by UW Alumni Tours Director Pauline Ranieri. The tour will take you into the homes, businesses, and villages of the modern and traditional women of Tanzania. This rewarding experience will take place against a backdrop of stunning scenery, from bustling villages to the pristine wilderness of the vast Serengeti.
- Spend the morning with the Baraka Womenís Cooperative in Arusha, where you'll learn about home, community, farming, and child-rearing from proud women of the Meru tribe.
- Fly to a private nature refuge (Enashiva) for two extraordinary days. Once there, you'll get to know your Maasai neighbors while hiking and taking a night game drive.
- Experience the awesome Serengeti. Rest assured that it lives up to the hype.
- Visit the "Cradle of Mankind" (Olduvai Gorge) where fossilized remains of animals and hominids were found that date as far back as two million years.
- Stay at an exclusive camp on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater and be one of the first to reach the craterís floor the following morning.
- Stay in the heart of the wilderness in eco-friendly camps which offer the perfect balance of nature and comfort.
The safari is limited to 16-18 participants so donít delay in making a reservation for this very special trip!
