Past travelers such as Evelyn T. Hill have shared these thoughts about the trip, “To be embraced by the Tanzanian community was truly priceless. It represents that we are all brothers and sisters no matter what continent we are on.” The next expeditions are scheduled for May and June 2012 and details can be found by visiting GlobeCoRe’s website at www.globecoreinc.com/
