Discovery Tours with OBA


I have been having a tough time finding the words to fully describe this trip. Life changing.

I think that every sponsor should travel on at least one Discovery tour. It enhances the bonding between the sponsor and the student and often results in the sponsor reevaluating their life and their priorities.

I would highly encourage everyone to participate in this adventure with OBA

It was cool to travel with a group of experienced travelers. Much wisdom I learned. Much insight about the bigger world I consumed.

Trip of A Lifetime

Visiting Tanzania is a life changing experience. You will definitely see amazing creatures big and small, but the relationships with the students and project partners are what will stay with you. This journey with OBA is filled with cultural experiences you will never forget.

OBA travels to Tanzania twice a year in order to visit our many projects and to attend the Form 4 and Form 6 graduation at the MaaSAE Girls’ Lutheran Secondary School. Late April/Early May is when the Form 6 graduation takes place and late October is when the Form 4 graduation takes place.

Travel Dates usually fall on: April 20th-May 5th & October 14th-31st
