Searching the African Savanna

Searching the African Savanna


As the second largest continent in the world, Africa spans over 300,000,000 miles. Bring your mosquito net, hat, and water bottle as you traverse the African savanna, the Sahara Desert, and the Congo rainforest. Visit the Swahilis’ towns on the Eastern coast and the salt mines in Mali, Western Africa. Explore how humans’ first ancestors lived and learned to communicate and grow in Africa’s varying climates, eventually heading northeast across the world. Walk along South Africa’s Cape Town, visit the Tomb of Askia—a great Songhai emperor—in Gao, admire one of Kenya’s painting-like national parks, and take your time in Ethiopia, being sure to visit the Babile Elephant Sanctuary and the Blue Nile Falls. Africa’s size is home to an incredible diversity. What will you discover?
