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.

Had a great time rafting the Salmon river. Wonderful group of ladies, great food, awesome guides. Camping was fun. Tents and mattresses very comfortable! Will definitely travel with green edventures in the future!

Amazing trip in a lot of ways! The Aggripah staff were wonderful cooks and guides. The scenery was out of this world. The experience of being in the wilderness will never be forgotten. My mettle was tested when it got very cold and windy, heavy dry bags to pack, and sleeping on the hard ground before I realized how the Thermarest was suppose to work. Meeting different types of women all over the U.S. with different thought patterns and lives than mine was eye opening. It was a demanding trip yet doable and educational. I believe the trip has strengthen my character. I would highly recommend the trip but the trip is not for the faint hearted!

I absolutely loved this Salmon River rafting trip with Tara Short and Green Edventures. Tara is very experienced in providing the perfect vacation adventure and always teams up with excellent partners such as Aggipah River Rafters. I loved the entire experience and enjoyed the challenges getting there and along the River but always felt safe. Great, great food, highly skilled and super friendly staff and other partners made the trip so memorable! Thanks once again Tara!

This was my first trip and I had an amazing experience. The views of the mountains and river were spectacular. The rafting guides were wonderful too, so friendly and knowledgeable. The food blew me away-- 3 delicious meals every day on the river and always a variety. Amazing women on an amazing journey. I hope to travel with Green Edventures again.

GreenEdventures Iceland Laugavegur Trek experience August 8-14, 2021 was one of the highlights of my life. It was an adventure that I was honored to share with close personal women friends, and acquaintances who now I call my friends. The landscape of Iceland is magical. Around every corner there is something new and unexpected that takes your breath away. Tara Short is an amazing leader, as are all the partners with whom she’s aligned. They are knowledgeable about the area, they communicate and teach, they are safe and concerned about the participants, but even more, they become part of the group! They are fun! Tara Short promotes laughter and has a spark about her that brings everyone together from the beginning to the end. We had a spectacular time sharing the sun, river crossings, gas station ice cream, hot springs, Blue Lagoon, and sleeping head to toe with each other. Our trek leader, Elo’, provided us with delicious food to nourish our bodies, and smiles and laugher to nourish our souls! We cheered each other on, and clinked glasses at the end to celebrate our accomplishment. I have and would recommend this trip to any free-spirited woman that wants to explore the beauty of the country, the quirkiness of Reykjavik and the travel in between. Thank you Tara Short and GreenEdventures. I look forward to new experiences with GreenEdventures! Diane Richardson

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?
