While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Recharging gets trickier as the trip progresses so be sure to do it each time you have the chance. You'll need an African adapter (3 elongated prongs, some at a funny angle) - most of the travel adapters include one. You shouldn't need a separate converter. Have fun!

Ruth Fleshman Aug 11, 2014 at 03:39 PM

I am booked for the September trip. I would like to be able to charge my phone and iPad. Can anyone tell me what kind of electrical plug adapter I will need AND whether I need a converter to charge these items?

The majority of us on the July trip got our Visas at the airport - not a problem. Just fill out the application (in the RS packet) in advance, and have a crisp, new $100 bill at the ready. Have fun!
Marcia Atkins Aug 05, 2014 at 02:40 PM

Thanks Dawn, I had forgotten about the visa requirement until yesterday, I need to slow down and prepare for this adventure !

Marcia Atkins Aug 05, 2014 at 02:15 AM

Has anyone who previously took the trip to Tanzania waited until entry to obtain a VISA? Any problem , delay etc.

Zoe Rascoe Jul 18, 2014 at 02:58 AM

Terry and Zoe Rascoe from Texas are almost packed - we are going to Arusha a couple of days early to visit an orphanage our church sponsors. We will see the group on Tuesday evening at Mt. Meru Hotel!

Gwen Anderson Jun 21, 2014 at 07:26 PM

To the Glenn Johnston's who are leaving in just a couple of days, hope you have a wonderful trip! Will look forward to hearing about your experiences when you get back.

Gwen Anderson May 30, 2014 at 03:11 PM

Would anyone be willing to post some of their photos from their trip? Thank you.

Dawn Huebner May 23, 2014 at 08:38 AM

Just finalized plans for July 21 trip (hi Gwem) flying out of Boston. Is anyone else going through Amsterdam? I'll be there from 6am until 10am before boarding a 10:05 to Kilimanjaro. Also thinking about the wonderful (but somewhat overwhelming) reading list. Does anyone going on the July trip want to coordinate a divide-and-conquer strategy, divvying up the books to read and share/discuss? Would love to hear from others...Dawn Huebner.
Gwen Anderson May 23, 2014 at 10:11 AM

Hi Dawn. Yes, I will be on your same flight to Kilimanjaro. I will give you my email address if you would like to communicate more that way. Great idea regarding the books. My email address is My name is Gwen (there is a mistake on the posting) I am getting so excited!
Dawn Huebner May 23, 2014 at 02:21 PM

I wondered if there was a typo on your name, but didn't want to make assumptions. I will contact you at your email address to talk about flights, books, etc., but welcome fellow travels who check this site to join in at any time. Dawn
