THE FOOTHILLS OF KILIMANJARO
Exploring Tanzania’s famed “Northern Circuit” is like no other journey on Earth. It is said that it is here, in the heart of the great Rift Valley, that humankind was born. This dramatic landscape is refuge to some of Africa’s largest and most exquisite wildlife populations. Among the soft prairie grass and acacia trees, expansive herds of wildebeest, elephant and zebra roam free. Rare black rhino, lions, leopards and gazelles all share this land with Masai herders. Blending in with this abundant wildlife are over 100 tribal groups and others of Indian, English and German ancestry. Even beyond its spectacular beauty, it is Tanzania’s warm, welcoming and loving people that make it an ideal setting in which to discover the simple joys of African life. Join Global Routes in Tanzania this summer for an extended summer gap program, as we immerse ourselves in the generous spirit of Africa.
