10 days
A fast-paced adventure with local flavors and a focus on community service

Bask in the African sunset as the rhythm of neighboring drums animates everything around you.

As you dart through tropical rainforests and daringly pass over hanging bridges in a truly unique national park, you’ll understand why the national music is called “highlife”. Then learn the traditions of basket weaving and jewelry-making that have identified a culture for generations.
