FUN AND TRAVELWildlife Exploration
Tanzania is home to some of the world’s most famous national parks, perfect for spotting the Big 5 of African wildlife. One of the highlights of an African safari is to experience the annual migration of an estimated two million wildebeest (joined by hundreds of thousands of zebra and Thomson’s gazelles) across the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara in Kenya. You can view this spectacular seasonal event by land, air or both!Hikes and Camping Trails
A popular reason for many international visitors to Tanzania is the Lake Victoria, magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro, which stands at a whopping 5895 meters. For the very fit and brave at heart you can embark on a journey to the peak of Africa. There are also Kili Day Hikes for those who may be short of time and just want to get a taste of the climb.
You won’t reach the peak but will climb to the first camp at 2720 meters. Hot spring camping trips are also a big adventure at Lake Chala where you can go camping beside some natural hot springs or at the lake shores.Volunteer Group Activities
There are always fun things going on at the volunteer house, or in the local area. You could be involved in games evenings, overnight camping, obstacle courses, quizzes or movie nights.
