Safari for Survivors


Once in a Lifetime

This unique opportunity will allow ovarian cancer survivors and supporters to experience Tanzania and the incredible nature and wildlife of Africa. The Safari for Survivors will enable participants to take part in a life time adventure in conjunction with our Expedition of Hope hikers, who are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer.

Safari Dates:

Monday, September 23 – Saturday, September 28, 2013
Safari for Survivors participants will arrive in Tanzania on September 21 and 22, and will depart September 29 or later.

What you can expect:

On the safari, you will travel to Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Eyasi, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Tarangire National Park. Wildlife seen from within your 4X4 safari truck includes monkeys, elephants, zebras, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, flamingos and other birds. Itinerary of stops and destinations to follow soon. Full accommodations are provided and up to 5-7 people can ride together in one vehicle.


We ask all Safari for Survivors participants to also fundraise to be part of the group. Fundraising can be facilitated easily online and Ovarian Cancer Canada will provide resources to help you reach your goals.
