We are so honored to announce that we will be partnering with Unearth Women for this departure!! UE is a quarterly travel magazine for women that highlights global issues, female writers and of course all things travel!


Overview:

This unforgettable 14 day odyssey will take you to from the far reaches of the Serengeti National Park, through plains filled with heart-stopping animals and into the heart of the of the culture and community of this majestic African nation.

We start in Arusha at the School for St Jude, whose free education initiatives are providing a much needed solution to the often over-crowded and under-funded public schools. Our trip will weave through the north-central part of Tanzania staying at some unique accommodations completely immersed in nature. Our local guides and hand-picked safari company will provide careful insight into this diverse culture and landscape.
