Every year, Malaria Partners International tours malaria eradication projects where the Seattle Rotary Service Foundation has contributed. In 2018 we visited a large project in Uganda with so much energy and appreciation that we will repeat it this coming May 5th-15th, 2019. Besides malaria, the group meets Ugandan Rotary members, visits a phenomenal environmentally sensitive resort and goes on a safari, all in 10 days for less than $200 a day including all meals, hotels, safari game drive and boat trip, private motor coach, chartered air flight, beverages including beer and wine and gratuities. In addition, there’s an opportunity to visit the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to visit one of two mountain gorilla habitats in the world.
