Tanzania Trip Description
In northern Tanzania we will visit medical missionaries Dr. Mark and Linda Jacobson and their thriving global health ministries and visit the children at St. Margaret’s primary school. From there we will spend time on safari in the majestic Serengeti National Park before heading to central Tanzania. There we will join our companion congregation in Kilolo to worship and learn.
Tanzania, East Africa is known for its vast wilderness areas including the plains of Serengeti National Park (populated by the “big five” game: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino) and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Due to its natural beauty and rich wildlife areas, tourism has become an important revenue earner for Tanzania.
Tanzania has been spared the internal strife that has blighted many African nations. It has enjoyed general political stability and national unity for more than 40 years. This is due in large part to its social diversity, with approximately 125 ethnic groups. Nonetheless, Tanzania remains one of the poorest countries in the world with few exportable minerals and a primitive agricultural system.
