The Challenge
To experience the life and culture of people in the developing world
To spend time in Tanzanian and Kenyan schools
To meet new people and overcome new challenges
To support less privileged children and communities
To experience the excitement of walking and camping in Wildest Africa
To have close encounters with wild animals in their natural environment 

The Opportunity
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit East Africa and learn about the land, its people and its culture. Unlike the majority of tourists who visit the region the Central High Students will be associating directly with local communities, experiencing life in schools and visiting a remote corner of Maasailand where the people still live very traditional lives and are largely unaffected by the modern world.

Organisation
The trip has been tailored specifically for Central High School by Willetts Safaris and will be led by John Blissett who has a lifetime’s experience of East Africa and regularly organises and manages trips for British doctors, nurses, teachers and students travelling on personal development programmes, as well as private, tailored game-viewing safaris.

Willetts Safaris has used its local knowledge and contacts to put together a fantastic opportunity for a small group of young people to do something very special.

The group will spend time in rural schools in both Tanzania and Kenya, visit one of the Great Rift Valley Lakes and explore Kenya's Maasailand, including walking and camping on the edge of the Loita Hills well away from the much travelled tourist routes in the area.
