“At AdventureWomen, we create opportunities for our female travelers to connect with local communities of strong women around the world,” stated Wineland. “For my first trip as the new owner of AdventureWomen, I want to share the relationships and friendships I have created over the last three decades with the Maasai women in Tanzania.”
Committed to both the land and people of the region, Wineland has spearheaded environmental conversation initiatives in Eastern Serengeti and co-founded Focus on Tanzanian Communities (FOTZC), an organization that supports education, women’s empowerment, health care and other development initiatives in Tanzania. Judi will unveil her off-the-beaten-path itinerary, bringing fellow travelers up close for an immersive insider’s experience.
Highlights of the May 19-31, 2017 itinerary includes:
Witness breathtaking wildlife in the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, encountering lions, leopards, cheetahs, African elephants, giraffes, hippos and more.
Explore the region’s legendary landscapes and eco-systems with expert-guided expeditions through the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti Plain.
Accommodation in stunning private tented camps, including two-nights accommodation at Gibbs Farm- voted #2 hotel in Africa and the Middle East in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards.
Meet the semi-nomadic Maasai people by visiting one of Judi’s friends at her “boma” (a settlement of circular mud homes) and a local school.
Connect with the trail-blazing Enjipai Women’s Group, a collaborative formed by Maasai women with great entrepreneurial spirit.
