Gaining independence in 1961, Tanzania is a stable, peaceful country with few tribal or regional divisions. Tanzania draws many first-time Africa travelers because of its well developed tourist infrastructure. It is a land where you're most likely to spot large numbers of big game, plus world-class views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
The country is recognized both in terms of wildlife and beauty. With national parks extending over some 33,660 sq km (13,000 sq miles), Tanzania has more land devoted to national parks and game reserves than any other wildlife destination in the world.
Some of Tanzania's ecologically significant wildlife parks include the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park in the north, and Selous Game Reserve and Mikumi National Park in the south. Gombe National Park in the west is known as the site of Dr. Jane Goodall's studies of chimpanzee behavior.
Our programs allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the people, sights, smells and tastes of Tanzania.
Volunteering in Tanzania is a way to totally immerse yourself in Eastern African culture and gain a broader view of the world.
This is a great opportunity to make life-long friends, learn a new culture from the inside out and discover that one person really can make a difference. Volunteer with us and see A Broader View of the World.
