All-Inclusive East African Philanthropic Adventure

Experience the vibrant spirit of Africa in local homes and villages and on the open plains of East Africa in 2023! This unique trip combines in-depth visits to Global Partners for Development projects, opportunities to get to know our African development partners and other community members, and some of the best African wildlife viewing possible. You will be warmly welcomed into villages that are off the beaten path in rural areas that most tourists never reach and then graciously hosted on a safari to view some of the most spectacular sights in East Africa.


For 40 years, GPFD has helped implement hundreds of successful community development projects with local organizations, supporting health, education, water, sanitation, farm animal management and women’s income generation projects in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Join us as Global Partners’ staff supports our African partners in vetting, implementing, and evaluating these life-changing projects.


The Swahili word, ‘safari,’ means journey, and you will get to witness one of nature’s ultimate journeys while on safari during the great wildebeest migration. It will also be the time of year when you can hopefully catch hundreds of calves being born on the plains of the Serengeti.
