Safari is the Swahili word for Journey, and on Wednesday, November 29th, The Explorers Club will celebrate journeys throughout Africa in this unique cultural evening. Come and enjoy the sounds of singer and drummer Tina Kokulaki, expert safari presentations, and traditional foods of Tanzania and East Africa.

Richard Wiese, of Born to Explore, will be speaking about his over 40 years of experience on expedition in Africa. Alan Feldstein will be speaking on the amazing work of the Cheetah Conservation Fund and how it is saving the last 8000 cheetahs left in the wild. Francis Assadi and Eliana Escobedo will share the stories of Extraordinary Conservationists with a Panotriptych Photo Expedition. Nicci Young Wiese, founder of the Africa Foundation and currently trustee of Empowers Africa, will focus on how an african safari can touch your soul. Artist Alison Nicholls will discuss how her experiences with African People & Wildlife (Tanzania) and Painted Dog Research Trust (Zimbabwe) changed and enriched her perspectives on both art and African conservation. Dr. Roger Härtl of Weill Cornell Medicine will also give us an update on his institution's annual neurosurgical mission trip to Tanzania, in coordination with Dr. Hamisi Shabani of the Muhimbili Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Institute.

Enjoy authentic Tanzanian cuisine by Tanzanian chefs, including Vitumbua (Fried rice cakes), Pilau wa kuku (seasoned rice with chicken), Garden salad w/ mangoes, Chapati (flat bread), Nyama ya mchuzi (meat stew), and Samosas (meat + veggie).
