Tanzania Program

Tanzania Program

MindVISA uses a combination of carefully-chosen international travel and specialized pedagogy to help young minds know themselves more. (MindVISA is a travel-based education provider, and not a travel agency. Please read the About us and our Approach sections of this website).

Why Tanzania?

Imagine being surrounded by a million animals - lions, leopards, zebras, elephants, rhinoceros, cape buffalos, wildebeests, giraffes - and being completely ignored. A lioness walks with her family of several cubs, right next to your jeep, and you watch with goose bumps, while they all continue to walk oblivious to your presence. A giraffe unendingly stretches its neck in a yoga-like posture to grab leaves of a tree under which your jeep is parked, and you wonder whether it will grab your green-hat instead.

A leopard chases a zebra, while a group of zebras and wildebeests form a protective ring, and no one seems to care that you are watching. This feeling of being a no body in the animal kingdom is a unique, powerful experience.

In addition to unparalleled immersion in wildlife, our Tanzania program introduces you to tribal Masai Mara culture, history of slave trade, legends about explorers like Living Stone, beautiful Zanzibar beaches, and unique Swahili culture. We combine these with MindVISA's experiential learning program to let young Indian minds learn about themselves and develop critical leadership abilities. (See program itinerary below)

We guarantee you; you will return back not only knowing numerous animals firsthand, but also knowing yourself better.

Please use the registration form to enroll in the program, if you are in the age group of 14-18 years.
