DescriptionJoin us as we dive into an immersive exploration of Tanzanian culture including sharing our travel stories and introduction to Tanzanian dance.
JUSTA LUJWANGA, a Tanzanian-Brooklynite, storyteller and curious traveler is on a mission to visit every corner of Tanzania. Leaving no stone unturned while sharing with her audience/ guests the beauty of her homeland has to offer. Born and raised in Tanzania and later at the age of 12, Justa moved to the US with her brother to reunite with her family. She spent a few years without visiting her home country while she studied. The day she went back, she rediscovered how beautiful her homeland was as a local, for tourists, and beyond. She founded her tour company "Curious on Tanzania" in 2005 out of her own curiosities for the country but also help travelers unlock richer travel experiences within and outside of Tanzania.
Her extensive travel between the US and East Africa has provided her a unique understanding of both cultures and she has learned not only how people travel but has also inspired local civil activities. Her community work has empowered her and allows her to unlock and uncover the genuine experience of her culture, heritage, and people of a great African country. With her experience, she now hosts immersive events in New York and virtually bringing the Tanzanian culture to life.
Justa, and her now team of more than 30, have had the opportunity to host guests including the staff from TED GLOBAL, Nomadness Travel Tribe members, Georgetown University MBA Students, CEOs and various families and couples on holiday trips. She hosts the Experience Tanzania Fest in NYC every June, alongside smaller events throughout the year.
Bonus: This workshop will include an open level mini-dance lesson with Justa Lujwangana. Bring a scarf or wear a wrap skirt and be prepared to be immersed in Tanzanian culture.
