Meet the team in Tanzania
Where we are based in Tanzania
Our volunteer opportunities in Tanzania are based in Arusha or Moshi. Our main local office is in Arusha, which is a three hours’ drive from our placements in Moshi. We have dedicated staff based permanently in both locations.
Arusha is a city nestled at the foot of Mount Meru. It’s home to over 400,000 people and has a mix of high-rise buildings and less modern developments. With our volunteer opportunities in Arusha, Tanzania, you’ll have exposure to many different aspects of life in Tanzania!
During your free time, you can enjoy the buzzing city center. Visit local markets and buy souvenirs like Batik artworks, or try out local cuisine. There are nearby wildlife reserves which give you the chance to connect with Africa’s amazing nature during safaris. You’ll even have the chance to learn more about the Maasai tribe while visiting a traditional village.
Moshi is a beautiful town with rustic buildings and lush vegetation. It’s located in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro and is home to around 200,000 people. Communities are mostly rural with many people leading a more traditional lifestyle.
Moshi is ideal for nature-lovers. You’ll get a chance to unwind in the African bush. You can spend your free time spotting animals in nearby wildlife reserves or hiking around the base of Africa’s highest mountain. Just a short trek through coffee plantations will lead you to the towering Materuni Waterfall!
