This year's educational tours include a Kenya safari, where travelers might get to see one of these guys.


By the time you receive this magazine, MOTHER EARTH NEWS' first group of adventuresome travelers will be back on their native soil after an in-depth, firsthand look at the use of preventive medicine and natural cures in the Soviet Union. (Over 40% of that nation's prescription medicine is obtained from herbs!) We're planning a special report on the state of health and nutrition in the U.S.S.R. based upon information gathered during the tour.

In the meantime, though, another group of "explorers" will set off (from July 7 to 29) to learn all about the cultures and crafts—both past and present—of the soaring Andes mountains and the still-unspoiled jungles of the upper Amazon!

It's not too late to reserve your spot in one of our educational tours, but you'll have to act immediately in order to do so. Our 24-day Kenya Safari (August 3-26)—cosponsored with Nature Expeditions International—is still taking last-minute reservations.

Here's just a hint of what you can expect from this foot-and-microbus ramble through some of East Africa's greatest game reserves and national parks.

A Touch of Eden

Kenya is one of those remarkable lands which seem to have everything: A partial list of the nation's attractions includes the semi-desert of the Northern Frontier; the majestic slopes of Mt. Kenya; the incredible lake country of the Rift Valley, the vast; open Masai Mara; the white sand coastal beaches; spectacular wild animals; over 400 species of birds; and a truly fascinating array of more than 80 distinct and different tribes. Consequently, this African country rates as one of the most beautiful and interesting areas in the world. Also, by incorporating free enterprise in its financial structure, Kenya has evolved into a model African state.
