We will travel to Ruaha National Park, the largest national park in Tanzania and enjoy wildlife safaris that provide many photographic opportunities. Staying in the local villages, we will have the opportunity to work with local experts in birding, traditional medicine, sustainable farming, animal husbandry practices, and local conservation efforts.
Summer 2016
Mbasa grew up in Tungamalenga the gateway village outside of Ruaha National Park and as a result knows this area very well. It is here he met Steph, who lived in the area for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer working in sustainable tourism. Together we have already lead several groups ranging from college students, high school students, families, to church groups. Our passion and love for this area as well as our insider's knowledge will provide you with the best experience possible!
