At a Glance

Experience two incredible environments in one extraordinary learning adventure. First, board a motor yacht to discover the Seychelles, an island chain of giant tortoise colonies, sugar-sand beaches, lush primordial forests and a marine world that beckons snorkelers just below turquoise waters. Then fly to Kenya to get close to elephant calves, spot “big cats” on game drives, discover the rituals of Maasai warriors and walk in the footsteps of Karen Blixen, who captured her life in Kenya so vividly in “Out of Africa.”
