African children running at school
Tloma Primary School

Tloma Primary School is in Tloma Village, 5km from Karatu in Northern Tanzania. It is the only primary school in Tloma Village and caters for the children of approximately 350 families. It is a government school and the school receive very little funding. Tloma Primary School has over 650 students, and only 16 classrooms. This means there is an average of 40 children per classroom. Often 4-5 children share one desk, making it difficult for children to see their textbooks and learn comfortably in an optimized environment.

Family Meal

Experience an evening of local dining as your family joins a resident family for a shared meal around their table. Learn customs and traditions while exchanging ideas about family life and culture. Based upon the preference of the client, as well as destination, this opportunity may be a shared meal, cooking lesson and/or market visit.

Our Happy Travelers
"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"

–Beck Family Trip

Lake Natron Camp 

Get off the beaten path and experience a side of Tanzania seen by very few tourists. There is also a chance for children to learn about the evolution of man and get to know and understand the Maasai people. Olduvai gorge is known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ and it is possible to add on a trekking expedition either to or from this area incorporating the history of mankind, geology and landscapes spanning 250 million years. You’ll also love visiting the hominid footprints located right near camp. These footprints were actually discovered by members of the camp team and have since been investigated by international scientists who have determined that they could be as old as 100,000 years. This part of the Great Rift Valley is populated by the Maasai people. Maasai bomas spread around the area, but the main central village is few kilometres away to the west at the base of the escarpment. The village is named Engare Sero, which means dappled water. This village gets its name from the river flowing out of the escarpment through a spectacular gorge that is both arid and lush. Take some time out with your guides and visit a local homestead.

Coronavirus Update

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
