Field Studies Tanzania

Immerse yourself in the vibrant life, sublime beauty, and terrific promise of Tanzania on a trip like no other.

Tanzania — its beauty and promise — distilled.

Some people dream of the wildlife. Others the service. Still others Kili. What’s your dream? What will you look forward to most? When you join a Field Studies Tanzania group, your dreams flow together, and the group very quickly shares one dream: to have the greatest three weeks possible in a beautiful, fascinating place.

We’ll explore the wildlife-filled Ngorongoro Crater and spectacular Serengeti. These are must sees on any trip to East Africa, but we’ll do more: we’ll take a number of hikes and experience the rugged simplicity of camping in beautiful natural areas off the beaten track. Our first week on safari is a great introduction to Maasai culture. Our Maasai guide will lead us through remote parts of the land. The days are long, but the rewards are great as we catch glimpses of giraffes and gazelles through stands of acacia.

In Arusha, the focus is service. We’ll volunteer at an orphanage and primary school, teaching English to young children, playing games, and helping with after-school chores. We’ll spend two mornings studying Swahili with a native-speaker language instructor and learn about the geography, culture, and history of Tanzania.

On Kilimanjaro, we’ll challenge ourselves with a weeklong summit bid. At 19,341 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the continent — a spectacular snow-draped volcano astride the equator.

Experiencing all of this — the Crater, the Serengeti, Arusha, Kilimanjaro — is the stuff of dreams. Field Studies Tanzania makes those dreams a reality, and let’s you share them in a fun — and friendship-filled — Overland group.
