Destination info

Tanzania is a beautiful country in East Africa, renowned for having some of the friendliest people and a huge diversity of scenery. Tanzania has it all, from palm lined beaches to remote wilderness and safaris. To the south it borders Mozambique, to the west Zambia, Burundi and Rwanda, to the north Kenya and Uganda and to the east the Indian Ocean. The official capital of Tanzania is Dodoma, however Dar es Salaam is the commercial capital with a busy international airport.

  • Location: Moshi and Mto wa Umbu

Day 1: Karibu Tanzania! (Welcome to Tanzania!)

On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you’ll be met by one of our friendly local representatives who will take you to your accommodation in Moshi to chill out and relax after your long journey.

 

Dinner included.

 

Day 2: The who, what, where and why….
Today is all about settling in and getting a feel for your new surroundings. Your orientation will be held today and will give you a great opportunity to ask all those burning questions about the exciting adventure that lies ahead. As part of your orientation you will also be taken on a walk around Moshi to familiarise with town that you will be calling home for the first section of your Tanzania Experience.

 

Breakfast and dinner included.

 

Day 3-6: Community volunteering in Moshi
As well as seeing the best that Tanzania has to offer, this Experience also gives you the opportunity to give something back and volunteer at our community projects helping children in Moshi. We have a number of different projects working with disadvantaged children at nurseries and kindergartens. Our volunteer coordinators will place you according to the needs of the projects at the time and any previous experience that you may have. Those who are doing the Kilimanjaro Climb, will be working on a visibility program, writing articles for the blog, Facebook and newsletters. 

You will be spending 3 days volunteering at the projects this week and a further 3 days next week after your action packed weekend of safari and cultural experience with a Masai community. 

 

Breakfast and dinner included.

 

Day 7: A true Masai experience
Perhaps one of the most famous nomadic communities in east Africa, the Masai are world renowned for their traditional customs and dress. Today you will be visiting the Masai village of Mto wa Umbu which is right next to Lake Manyara and the famous N’gorongoro Crater that you’ll be visiting later in your trip, it’s a 4-hour drive to the village but the scenery along the way is fantastic, so make sure you keep your camera close to hand! When you reach the village you will be taken on a guided walk and given a brief history of the Masai people and their nomadic lifestyle. During your time at the village you will be able to visit a local school and the other community projects taking place in the village too.

 

Tonight you'll stay in the Karatu volunteer house.

 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. 

 

Day 8: N’gorongoro Crater Safari

You’ll need to be up bright and early this morning as we head to N’gorongoro Crater very early to fit in a full day of game viewing. The crater was formed by a volcano and is said to have one of the largest calderas in the world measuring 20km in diameter; it offers stunning scenery and a fascinating backdrop for game viewing and owing to its small size in comparison to neighbouring National Parks and high concentration of wildlife, close-range viewings of the animals are common. It is home to a huge variety of wildlife including Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Rhino, Cheetah and of course Hippos; along with a whole host of smaller game including Warthog, Impala, Thompson’s Gazelles, Zebra and Reedbucks; it is also offers a wealth of bird life so all in all it is a fantastic destination for your safari! The Crater itself is part of the larger N’gorongoro Conservation Area which has been given UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Pack Light as you can do a lot of moving around, where I took 3 bags (stuff for Kili) it was hard to transport to Dar and then Zanzibar Don't expect everyone to be on time people are very often late, so be prepared to wait!! Don't be worried about being in a smaller group there are often if not always other people from other organisations

If you climb Kilimanjaro and hire your gear over there make sure they are weather appropriate and the sleeping bags aren't just liners also pack wipes you will need them...haggle as much as you can when buying souvenirs as they will try and charge you the tourist rate..walk away and you will still get it at the price you want

What were the highlights of your trip?

The people that I met were the highlight. I had the pleasure of spending time with some of the most amazing, kind and welcoming people in Moshi. Also the four other girls on the Tanzania Experience with me were great, we built really strong friendships being a small group of like-minded girls

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Bring a sleeping bag... you will likely need it, especially if you are going in the dry (cooler) season. 2. Be flexible... things rarely go according to plan or on time, you just have to be flexible and relaxed and open minded about the project they place you in, step out of your comfort zone and you might amaze yourself. 3. Try to learn some Kiswahili before you go!

Take up every opportunity given to you - I have done so many amazing things I never thought I would. Make an effort to pick up some of the local phrases and words - it makes such a difference to the locals if you "have a go" Be relaxed and go with the flow

What were the highlights of your trip?

- Safari: Trip to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti (booked separately) We saw the Big 5! And a lot more even it was not the best time for doing safaris (according to the guides) - Trip to Coral Island Beautiful place - quite and peaceful, very relaxing! - Trip to Prison Island Never saw such big tortoise! Awesome. - Spice Tour in Zanzibar Interesting and good to know where spices come from. - Kendwa Beach I love this place! Best beach and nice parties under the stars.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

- Don't forget your torch, you will need it for sure! Carry it always with you, you never know when the electricity goes off. Even under the shower :-) - You trip starts in Moshi and ends on Zanzibar.....if you are wondering where to buy good souvenirs for nice prices wait for Zanzibar! Moshi was way too expensive (and it was exactly the same stuff!). - Bring a Visa Card instead of Mastercard, less trouble! - Volunteering program: If you would like to bring something for the kids: sharpeners (I saw kids with razor blades!), pencils, rubber, posters for the class
