Day Activities More details
Day 1 Arrival Upon landing at Kilimanjaro Airport, you will be met by a member of our awesome local team and transferred to your new home, Camp Mbokomu. Camp Mbokomu is one of our most established camps in Tanzania and is located in a small community, a short drive from Mosh. 
Day 2 Project orientation and school visit After breakfast, our project leaders will take you around the local community. While exploring the village you will get to know the local families before having a full briefing on what your work here will involve. During the briefing, you will learn more about the current situation and challenges faced by the community. You’ll also visit the local school to meet with the teachers and students.
Day 3 School project work In the Mbokomu region, local schools constantly struggle with a lack of adequate funding, which puts children’s lives at unnecessary risk from dilapidated classrooms that are close to collapse, as well as poor sanitary conditions. You will spend today working alongside our locally employed craftsmen to help build or renovate school buildings to create inspirational and stimulating learning resources for the students.
Day 4 Marangu Waterfall Trip The word “Marangu” means a place with too many water streams and it is one of the most popular places to visit in Tanzania. Situated in the Kilimanjaro National Park the waterfalls are at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro and are surrounded by tropical rain forest. After just a short walk through the lush landscape (keep your eyes peeled for different types of monkeys, tropical birds and other animals) you’ll find yourself at the base of some seriously impressive waterfalls. The source of the water comes directly from the glacier on top of Kilimanjaro.
Day 5 Big game safari in Arusha National Park This morning you will be up early as you head to Arusha National Park for your safari. Arusha National Park is one of Tanzania’s most beautiful and protected areas, dominated by Mt Meru. The park has a rich variety of wildlife including giraffe, zebra, warthog, elephant and many others.
Day 6 Departure This morning you will say your final goodbye to the team in Tanzania and head to the airport ready for your flight home.

To find out more about the trip, inclusions and prices please register for more information and one of our expert regional coordinators will get in touch.

We would love for you to join us on this amazing experience!

Really good interaction with Camps International and thoroughly appreciated their offer of a recce. Despite running numerous international trips previously, I have not had the opportunity to fully recce a trip before and I know it would have been beneficial. All communication was very smooth, primarily with Laura and Chris but also the rest of the staff at Camps. Thank you

It gives a great insight to what the students will go through and also gives us more emphasis when advertising the trip to parents who may have concerns over letting their children go on a trip abroad.
