A Taste of Road Scholar: Tanzania and the Great East African Migration
Learn about one of the greatest wildlife movements on earth — the displacement of nearly two million wildebeest, zebras, lions, elephants, leopards and gazelles in their search for survival. Following sites that are visited on the Road Scholar program “Tanzania and the Great East African Migration,” you will venture from the plains of the Serengeti to the origin of man in Olduvai Gorge to the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Along the way, Lucas will take you on a journey to discover this region’s amazingly vast wildernesses, and through his own life you will learn about his and other tribes and the diverse and exotic cultures of Tanzania.
