Tanzania is a favourite destination with travellers who crave adventure and nature because of the wide variety of activities on offer. The country is home to Africa’s highest mountain, the exotic spice islands of Zanzibar, the world’s largest game reserve and some of the most famous parks. Tanzania is also home to one of the largest wildlife populations in the world and with national parks and game reserves covering 28% of the country, this spectacular place has more land devoted to wildlife than anywhere else in the world.

What Will I Do?
In Tanzania, structured sports education and inter-schools competition is virtually non-existent due to a lack of resources and time.
Support a small coastal village by working on a range of sustainable marine projects such as seaweed farming and boat building. Also help improve school facilities.
Christmas is coming and we are feeling festive! We can’t think of a better gift than the chance to make a difference and do something amazing…
Where Will I Stay?
Camp Tsavo is spectacular. Set in a private conservation area, this paradise offers you the chance to live alongside amazing wildlife in the heart of the African bush.
Camp Tanga is a rustic bush camp set on the beach in the heart of a small rural community. Experience authentic coastal life as you live and work alongside the villagers.
Tanzania has a rich, multicultural heritage and the people are extremely friendly and welcoming, which makes volunteering in Tanzania such a rewarding experience. You’ll be living and working alongside local people on a wide range of initiatives designed to help improve living standards within their community. Many of the people we work with are living below the poverty line and don’t have access to proper education facilities, medical treatment or even clean drinking water, so your help is desperately needed. You will work on several different projects during your time with us, giving you the chance to benefit more than one area and see more of the country and it’s amazing people. Our main projects are in the foothills of Kilimanjaro and right on the coast just outside Tanzania’s oldest coastal town, Tanga.
Our environmental and wildlife conservation projects are equally important to us, so you’ll also help protect fragile ecosystems for the benefit of the incredible wildlife that you’ll see. You’ll work in the heart of a private wildlife sanctuary that is home to elephants, cheetahs, lions and buffalos as well as going on an awesome safari; undoubtedly one of the perks of volunteering in Tanzania!
And if that isn’t enough to keep you busy, you can add an adventure activity to your volunteer experience. Why not challenge yourself to climb Africa’s tallest mountain, the mighty Kilimanjaro? Or choose an extended safari in one of the world’s most famous national parks for the ultimate wildlife experience? Well now’s your chance to do something extraordinary! So, what are you waiting for...
