Tanzania provides the ultimate all-encompassing African adventure! Where cultural exchange and active adventure go hand in hand.
Massai culture is unlike any other in the world! In summer 2009 a group of eight PLAY it Forward® Sojourners got to experience it for themselves during our 14-day adventure in Tanzania. We first built a chicken coop for orphans living in Rhotia Valley, then explored the Big-5 on safari in NgoroNgoro Crater, and checked one off our bucket list when we embarked on a 7-day climb of the Machame Route of Kilimanjaro.
