Volunteering in Tanzania - Camp Tanzania

Tanzania is a favourite destination for gap year students who crave adventure because of the wide variety of activities on offer. The country is home to Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, the exotic spice islands and white, sandy beaches of Zanzibar archipelago and home to one of the largest wildlife populations in the world. 
This is complimeted by the warm and welcoming Tanzanians, despite the hardships they face on a daily basis.

"Camp Tanzania will always be a home away from home. Although I was there for only 2 weeks I feel as if I have known everyone there for a number of years and they will become friends for life. Fellow gappers, the staff and the locals made this trip the best experience of my life so far."

  • Camp Tanga

    Camp Tanga is our main Tanzania camp, and offers the chance to experience authentic local village life in this charming fishing community, overlooking the wonderful Indian Ocean.

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...
