Trip details

Our Tanzania Community Volunteer trip is designed to get you volunteering overseas in a safe and fun environment and with a genuine and rewarding purpose. Our expert team and local partners take care of everything you need to start making a positive impact, from volunteer placement, accommodation, meals and ongoing support throughout your entire journey.

Whether you’re doing gap year volunteering or taking a volunteering holiday from work, you’ll arrive in Africa with the confidence that absolutely everything has been pre-arranged for you. You’ll be able to jump straight into your volunteer duties and start making new friends with all the logistical details sorted, from airport transfers to project site accommodation.

Channel all your energy into immersing yourself in your volunteer placement, as well as taking time to get to know the local area on your days off. Experience hiking Africa’s highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, spotting wildlife on a safari tour and trying the local cuisine instead of sweating the logistical stuff - that’s exactly why we’re here. Feel confident and proud you are contributing much-needed help to a meaningful cause and save yourself the time, money and even the risk of being stranded in a foreign country by having us on your side. Make your time count on this life-changing opportunity to volunteer in Tanzania and arrive home knowing you've made a lasting and positive impact on disadvantaged locals.
