September 7 to 23, 2017

Attend a three-day workshop on the Stanford campus with Professor Bill Durham, ’71, and Dr. Susan Charnley, MA ’89, PhD ’94, before heading to Africa.

Compare notes. Unlike any other Travel/Study trip, on a Field Seminar we travel alongside Stanford sophomores, learning from their presentations and sharing tales of the Farm. Where we come from. Visit Olduvai Gorge, the paleoanthropological site where discoveries helped further the understanding of human evolution. Spotting the “Big Five.” Search for the top five of Africa’s most iconic mammals—lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape Buffalo—from open-air safari vehicles on daily game drives with expert guides. Jump and shout! Visit a Maasai boma to witness daily life and learn about age-old tribal traditions.
