Is this tour for you?

This tour is organized for Franco-phone Africa and English speaking Christian workers from East Africa. Not in Christian ministry? You are welcome, but the tour will emphasize teaching and group discussion that is prepared for Bible translators and other Christian workers. If you are interested in understanding the geographic and historical context of the Bible you will fit in fine.  Be ready to be amazed by the remains of history you will see, and be prepared to have your perspective on the events in the Bible modified.

Accommodation is comfortable: we stay in 3- and 4-star hotels with two nights in a dormitory accommodation. A supplemental fee is required if you wish to have a double room with private bath instead of the dormitory experience. There is a minimum age of 13 years required, but there is no maximum age limit. You do need to be able to walk in short spurts a total of 2 – 5 miles a day.
