Whilst on your 4 week life-enhancing school expedition look out for some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife including elephants, zebras, giraffes, big cats and monkeys as you visit one of the country’s best wildlife areas.

Tanzania has a diverse population, including the world famous, tall, red-robed Maasai tribe who live around the Tanzania – Kenya border. Meet the inspiring Mamas of the local villages as they welcome you to the community and teach you some of their traditional skills.

Take on a 3 day trek through the vibrant tropical rainforest of the Usambara Mountains. The unique climate of these mountains is unlike other Tanzanian ranges, creating a cloud forest which make it one of the world's biodiversity hotspots. The mountains are home to an exceptional assortment of plants and wildlife.
