GA Study Tour to Tanzania 2011

Tanzania 2011: Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti

July - August 2011

Each year the International Special Interest Group runs a Study Tour for geography teachers. Past tours have visited China, South Africa, Mexico and Kenya. Next year we will be spending around 15 days in Tanzania, from the end of July to the middle of August.

We will be based in two centres, Zanzibar and the Moshi/Arusha area. The tour will focus on aspects of geography currently being taught in UK schools, with an extensive programme to include the impacts of tourism in Zanzibar and the Kilimanjaro region, a visit to Makalema High School with a guided tour of the area to include local markets, village life, and a visit to a small scale coffee farmer. We will also have the chance to join staff of Makalema High School in a traditional celebration meal.

The towns of Moshi and Arusha will be the base to study the impacts of urban growth and also visit the co-operative coffee union headquarters and processing plant. There will also be the time to relax and enjoy the delights of the small islands of Zanzibar and game park drives in Serengeti or the Ngorongoro crater. 

Pricing and further information

Our target price is £2000. There will be two bursaries of £500 each for a primary and secondary teacher in their first five years in the profession. 

If you are interested and would like to receive further information, please contact the tour leader Lizzie Wilshaw.
