July 8 to 19, 2020

Join faculty leader Suki Hoagland on an epic adventure timed to observe the start of the massive annual wildebeest migration. And travel to Olduvai Gorge, the “cradle of mankind,” to meet with paleoanthropologists and learn about our roots from resident researchers.

Wild days. Check off Africa’s “Big Five” (lion, elephant, leopard, Cape Buffalo and rhino) as we explore the landscapes of Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, home to huge herds of lions, zebras, gazelles and hippos. Starry nights. Then kick back in the evenings at our luxurious safari lodges and camps, gazing at the star-studded heavens and listening to the symphony of sounds of the nighttime savannah. It takes a village. Talk with the inhabitants of a Maasai community about life and the host of challenges they are faced with today.
