lifestyle at SFS’ East Africa Centers. In Tanzania, campus is reminiscent of summer camp, with plenty of outdoor and communal spaces, while the small, friendly community of Rhotia is a short walk away. In Kenya, the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen from the sprawling, grassy campus that is just down the road from Kimana. Both are the perfect base for expeditions into the surrounding national parks and conservation areas.
