2017 Western Safari Tour


Saturday June 24 – Sunday July 9, 2017

For Rotary Exchange Students


Come join us for the 2017 Western Safari Tour of parts of California, Arizona and Nevada. This is a camping tour which begins and ends in the City by the Bay, San Francisco. Cost of Tour is $1,800. Transportation is by a modern air conditioned bus. You need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow and comfortable clothes, including a nice outfit in case we go out for a night on the town.

  • We will all meet in San Francisco on Saturday, June 24.
  • On Sunday, we will be traveling to Los Angeles
  • Monday, we visit Universal Studios where many movies and television shows are filmed and “World Famous” Hollywood Boulevard
  • Tuesday is spent at Disneyland and California Adventure Park from 8 a.m.- 12 midnight
  • Wednesday we are off to San Diego to enjoy the great California beaches and other local attractions
  • Thursday will be spent at Sea World to include a visit with Shamu the whale
  • Friday is a long day on the bus for our trip to the Grand Canyon, one of the original 7 Wonders of the World. You will be awed by its many beautiful colors
  • From there it is off to Las Vegas, the City That Never Sleeps. There will be time for time by the pool and after dinner, you will check out the lights of the famous Las Vegas Strip
  • We will then travel to the San Joaquin Valley to spend a night before our planned arrival at Yosemite National Park the following day (we can’t make the entire trip in one day)
  • Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We’ll spend our last three nights relaxing, hiking and spending time with our great new friends
  • On Saturday morning we pack up for our return to San Francisco. The afternoon will be spent walking on the Golden Gate Bridge and visiting Fisherman’s Wharf
  • Saturday night will conclude our tour with a nice dinner out (no more camp food)
  • You will return to your host families or home on Sunday, July 9th.

We are confident you will love the Western Safari Tour as much as the many exchange students that have spent these two weeks visiting southwestern United States.

Our limit is the first fifty-four (54) exchange students to apply.
