Tanzania is a place that is accessible to any type of traveler and is perfect for the first-time traveler to Africa.


Straight out of the pages of a National Geographic Magazine, Tanzania offers ordinary people the chance to live like an explorer. This story-book journey is a combination of game drives through wildlife parks, and cultural experiences with tribal people who are living the same way their ancestors have lived here for centuries.


The adventure begins in Arusha National Park and follows the Northern Circuit which encompasses the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, and Lake Eaysi, and Tarangire National Park. We will explore wooded savannas, grasslands, and highland forest. Lodges are 4-star with delicious food and comfortable accommodations within the parks and protected areas. You may wake to the sounds of roaring lions. – No joke.


The magic of Tanzania, and the stuff of legends, is the Serengeti. As you drive through the vast expanse of grassland in a 4×4 safari jeep, you might find yourself humming tunes from the Disney cartoon, The Lion King.  Massive herds of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles travel a route considered one of the largest migrations in the world. You may even find yourself getting a little teary-eyed at the intangible beauty you are witnessing.


Equally as impressive as the game parks and conservation areas is the interaction you will have with tribal communities like the Maasai, Hadzabes, and Datoga tribes. From pastoral nomads to traditional hunter-gatherers, you will feel like you have stepped in a time machine taking you back centuries as you learn about each tribe and participate in dancing and other cultural activities.


Trip Highlights:

  • Experience  Semi-Luxury Safari Tent Camping in the Serengeti National Park and a variety of other unique lodges near national parks and conservation areas.
  • Go to sleep and wake to the sounds of the wild Serengeti.
  • Be moved as you witness one of largest migrations on Earth of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles.
  • See big cats including prides of lions and elusive leopards, and stealthy cheetahs.
  • Enter the Ngorongoro Crater, a 25 km wide dormant-volcano-bowlful-of-30,000-animals.
  • Dance with the Maasai, exchange stories with the Datoga women, and learn to shoot bow and arrows with the Hadzabe.
  • Explore the Olduvai Gorge, a site which influenced what scientists know about human evolution.
  • Opportunities for shopping for indigenous African handcrafts, Tanzanite, and art.

Just returned from the Northwoods Women's edventure trip and it was spectacular! The scenery was magnificent, the accommodations cozy and the daily activities were varied, informative and exhilarating! I cannot say enough about the two naturalists at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Licia and Annie, who took care of all the myriad details, including last minute schedule changes to accommodate weather updates. Also, the speakers and recreation guides were passionate and truly engaged the group in the history and ecology of the area. I even got to experience the thrill of riding an E-bike! I highly recommend this marvelous, colorful trip, especially if you live in an area where autumn can be subtle.
This trip had just the right amount and variety of activity. Loads of fun in a beautiful place! Who knew there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
I've been on many scuba diving trips, educational/cultural adventures and international travels. This was the best-organized and executed by FAR. All accommodations were very clean and welcoming. Our guides were knowledgeable and responsive to our individual interests in the natural world. I signed up for trip ONE WEEK ahead and thought--oh, I know what to pack! But, I didn't for THIS trip. Tara's packing list SAVED me. Her careful instructions let me bring all the RIGHT items. Food and activities were excellent. We were taken care of SO very well. Tara kept everything running right on schedule, which is sometimes challenging if cultures run on island time! I have wanted to see Baja and the Sea of Cortez for many years and finally got my wish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
thank you Cynthia for this rave review. It means to me that you took the time to write for everyone to see. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you on our adventure. Hope to see you again! -- tara

Most amazing trip I've ever been on and I've traveled to many places! I wanted an adventure and I got it. Plenty of physical activities in the 10-days including hiking, glacier trekking, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking. All the ladies in our group - along with our two guides - were so much fun! Would totally book another trip with Green Edventures! - Nikki
I can't say enough positive things about this trip! The guide and trip leader were knowledgeable, entertaining, professional, and SO fun to travel with! The planned activities kept us busy and gave us an excellent feel for what Iceland had to offer. I definitely want to go back. The pre-trip information prepared me well for all possibilities of weather and challenge, and I realized that before this trip, I had been missing the camaraderie of traveling with an all-women group. I would definitely do another trip with Green Edventures! Cheryl

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
