About this trip

Go beyond tourism. Connect as a global citizen. Forever change your perspective.  


Tanzania's known for Mount Kilimanjaro and its famed safaris. Most visitors skip over major cities, and have little interaction with locals outside of those in the tourist industry. That's what makes a CGG Experience an adventure of a lifetime.


Join us on this custom nine day/eight night CGG Experience. We immerse in the rapidly growing city of Dar es Salaam, participate in graduation at SEGA Girls' School in Morogoro, and enjoy a safari at Mikumi National Park. The Experience connects us to Tanzania's future--culture, education, sustainability and wildlife preservation are a focus. As in all CGG Experiences, personal connection and global learning are the key souvenirs. 


This CGG Experience is limited to 10 curious, adventurous, globally-minded travelers. There will be a numerous opportunities to engage pre-trip, which will enhance our learning experience. 

Tanzania

BACKGROUND

Between safaris and Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers much to explore. We always recommend arriving East Africa (or Europe) a few days early to alleviate jet lag. Learn a few words of Swahili and settle into the more relaxed African pace. Soon you'll be ready to launch into our exploration of Tanzania's present and future.

I had been to Santa Fe many times over many years, but Jodi assembled an entirely different experience that provided a more substantive understanding of the history, workings, and aspirations of this vibrant city. She brought together engaging local experts on a variety of topical subjects to provide fuller appreciation of what we were seeing. Her enthusiasm, her attention to detail, and the gracious hospitality that she and her husband extended to the group resulted in a rare camaraderie and a thoroughly delightful experience.

Wow: a life changing trip! Jodi and Bob were impeccable and thoughtful hosts, we ate like royalty, laughed our heads off and had the most amazing insider experiences. Remarkably, our group instantly got along because everyone was kind, funny, intelligent and inquisitive. The best review that I can share is I'm 100% in on Jodi's next trip! Can't wait!

As a second-time traveler with Connecting Growth Globally, I can tell you that Jodi Morris does not disappoint with her newly created, Santa Fe experience. Having traveled to Tanzania in 2019 with Jodi, she applies her creative format to learn and go deep to experience the true local level, while staying true to her mission to connect and elevate people, internationally and domestically. The experiences and wonderful conversations shared by our fabulous Santa Fe group (the Fab 9!) included amazing culinary experiences to chatting with Charlie, the nuclear physicist, and his lovely wife Janet at a lovely, relaxed dinner! What a milestone moment that was in my life. Although no two trips will ever be exactly the same, I really like the idea of a one-of-a-kind experience and wish Jodi well on all upcoming newly, crafted trips! I'm ready to pack my bags again!

This trip was absolutely amazing and wonderful in every way. Jodi Morris organized this with such thoughtfulness and incredible attention to detail. The theme that wove it all together was storytelling and how the uniqueness of Santa Fe is present in all these stories. We met with so many people who are engaged in the Santa Fe community in a variety of ways- from food to art, to history to economic development. We also experienced the incredible food of Santa Fe in so many ways. Jodi created a truly unique experience for all of us. I cannot recommend this highly enough. I would come back to Santa Fe in a minute- and will most definitely sign up for future Connecting Growth Globally trips. Thank you Jodi for all you did to make this an unforgettable experience for all of us.

The trip was fabulous! We did quite a lot in a week, but felt like we had a nice balance between planned activities and moments of downtime for reflection. All of the experiences were thoughtfully crafted to make the most of everyone's time and each experience added to the collective experience. It was a well-rounded trip with approaching Cambodia from a lens on the future. I now have a better understanding of the potential of the country and the many ways both NGOs and small local businesses are working together to make the future bright. Conversation and shared experiences have led to hopefully lifelong friendships.
