NECA Tanzania 2107

October 21 - 29
Optional Extensions
Gorilla Trekking in Uganda & the Masi Mara in Kenya

Dear NECA Members,
NECA sponsors International Study Missions to encourage the interchange of ideas, technologies and best practices among contractors in the U.S. and internationally. These specialized annual trips bring U.S. contractors into direct contact with owners, top management and the workforces of contracting firms in other countries.

This year’s Study Mission travels to Tanzania with optional extensions to the Masai Mara, Kenya and Uganda. This tour will be an excellent opportunity to better understand how these African nations are finding their way into the world economy. And, through meetings with local contractors and visits to active construction projects in each area visited, you will see firsthand how our business is conducted.

Despite the many different cultures, Tanzania has had a peaceful history and enviable political stability compared to some of its neighboring countries; its people are friendly and welcoming. Combined, Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, represent one of the world's most important ecosystems, some 3 million large animals inhabit this region. The annual wildebeest migration, the largest movement of animals on Earth, takes place on these East African plains. And, no area is more protected by geography and by permit than steep-walled Ngorongoro Crater, which has a separate ecosystem and its own collection of animals including lion, hyena, cheetah, leopard and elephant plus there’s a good chance to see the very rare black rhino. Upon flying into Kilimanjaro International Airport, we’ll see the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest walkable mountain in the world.

Our accommodations are luxury safari lodges and tents. Each property is individually designed and operated around the philosophy of “luxury, naturally”. Since we’re effectively booking most of the accommodations in each camp, they are requiring a significant advance deposit now. So, if indeed you’re intending to come, please return the Reservation Form right away or give a call to re-affirm. The package prices include the intra-Africa airfares; so all we need worry about is the international air to/from. We’re all arriving into Kilimanjaro; departure cities will vary and are specified in the itineraries.
