Day 2: Exploring Arusha City and Albinism centre

After early morning breakfast, we will drive to one of the albinism centers in Arusha. People with albinism have serious vision issues—often they are considered semi blind. This factor has repercussions in education as their teachers often do not realize that the students with albinism are unable to see the blackboard well enough to keep up with other students. Classmates and teachers alike treat them with scorn as it is assumed that they are inherently stupid. Few people with albinism complete secondary school and even fewer have the opportunity to attend college or university.
After that, we will visit one of the local markets and interact with the locals in Arusha before driving back to our hotel in Arusha for overnight at Ilboru Safari Lodge.

The Park is well known for its elephant families, which can often be seen congregating by the river. You may also see giraffe, bushbuck and hartebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators, including lions and leopards. There are more breeding species of birds found in Tarangire National Park than anywhere else on the planet. Tarangire is the best place to see these gentle giants in their natural habitat – from the adorable calves all the way up to the intimidating bulls.
