Experience Kenya's endless savanna plains and wide open vistas. It is the land of the proud Masai, an ancient Arab history and Swahili heritage. Watch the endless stream of migratory wildebeest as they cross the precarious Mara River in search of greener pastures, stand in shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro- Africa's highest peak - and meet conservationists who are in the front lines to preserve east Africa's iconic wild life. This program designed specifically for Tufts University, offers a unique experience by merging the academic and the aesthetic, by exploring Kenya’s rich ecosystem, and offering a glimpse into the country’s, and Tufts’, commitment to conservation.
