Curious on Tanzania is a social travel company with a mission “to educate curious Americans discover the art, culture and beauty of Tanzania in a personalized, friendly and accessible way.” The social aspect of the company comes from the monthly cultural events in New York City, which showcase facets of Tanzanian culture, such as a historical look at the Maasai tribe or a feature on the local artwork.

Justa believes that raising awareness on Tanzanian culture can both correct misconceptions about the country and highlight the many opportunities to invest in the region. Her group trips to Tanzania include activities that promote cultural awareness alongside networking events with the local community. Ultimately, she hopes that her events can facilitate a network of people meeting and sharing experiences, personal stories, ideas, and making connections to inspire new ventures and opportunities in Tanzania.
