East Africa Safari

Incredible East Africa Safari Tours

Enchanting, exciting, and life-changing, our East Africa adventures offer students and groups the experience of a lifetime. Explore the natural beauty and wildlife of this amazing region with experienced guides, and learn about the cultures and histories of the people who call East Africa home.

We organize adventure treks and educational tours in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Zambia as part of our study-abroad and experiential internship programs. Our programs are designed to give participants an authentic and immersive experience in East Africa, and our team is passionate about sharing the beauty of this region with the world.

Local university faculty, award-winning guides, and IMA experts all play a part to deliver travel experiences that foster cross-cultural competency and develop global perspectives. Our cultural treks include defined, measurable learning outcomes, and are led by local faculty with years of experience in the field and a lifetime of East Africa in their hearts.

We explore historic landmarks and natural wonders — from serene beaches to awe-inspiring mountains — all with a fierce dedication to sustainable travel and ethical, culturally-competent engagement. There are over 200,000 years of human history in East Africa. While it’s impossible to impart such a monumental legacy in just a few weeks, our team of local and international experts firmly embrace the challenge to deliver an unforgettable educational experience.
