Teacher-Led Trips in Tanzania

Since 2006, Rustic has introduced students to the people and cultures of Tanzania. Between safari trips and Mt. Kilimanjaro climbs, students are exposed to indigenous tribal groups, such as the Maasai of the Great Rift Valley and the nomadic Hadzabe, who still maintain traditional lifestyles. Students also work alongside villagers on collaboratively designed service projects, enabling them to integrate with the community and develop a local perspective.

When you think of Tanzania, you perhaps think of postcard photos: the vast savannas of the Serengeti, majestic African wildlife, the mighty Kilimanjaro towering overhead, the beauty of Zanzibar. But after experiencing life in Tanzania, you’ll remember the smiling faces of your friendly hosts, delicious food, and charismatic cultural experiences of this fascinating country. — Patrick Ziemnik | Tanzania Country Director
