Ever been on safari in Rwanda? If not, you can live vicariously through our Squad 3 students by taking a look at their photos! Animals aside, the students have been settling in to their homestays and making lifelong connections.

In honor of Winterline’s first program in Africa, we’ve decided to focus this week’s blog exclusively on the incredible photos from Rwanda! Squad 3 has been having an incredible time exploring the town and bonding with the locals through their homestays. This week, the students used some of their free time to go on safari and see beautiful animals up close and personal. See for yourself!
