"Stephen Kinzer is fascinating, has an amazing breadth of knowledge, tells stories in animated and funny ways, and is so interested in others. I didn’t want the trip to end, but had to return to my job!"
Commonwealth Club is excited to offer an exclusive safari to northern Tanzania. During this 10-day adventure, you will be immersed in the unspoiled landscapes of East Africa and meet some of these areas’ most celebrated residents, including lion, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, rhino, and more. Our Study Leader for the trip is Dr. Landry Signé. (Bio below) In addition, meetings have been specially arranged to talk with community members to gain a better understanding about challenges facing the people today.
Explore Tanzania from Tarangire National Park where baobab trees tower overhead to the famous Ngorongoro Crater where 30,000 animals live within 102 square miles to Oldupai Gorge, the site of significant discoveries of human origins. No safari is complete without experiencing the mighty Serengeti, Tanzania’s oldest national park. After visually spectacular days, retreat to eco-friendly tented camps offering comfort, superior service, and gourmet meals in the heart of the wilderness. Whether you are spotting a leopard, learning about local culture, or sharing stories around a campfire under the stars, Tanzania is, quite simply, an experience not to be missed!
