Recruiting Organization: Art in Tanzania


Art in Tanzania runs safari and tour operations in Tanzania as part of NGO fundraising. Interns help develop the tour programs, guiding and marketing our tours and safaris.


Art in Tanzania looks to set itself apart from the crowd regarding safari and tour business by offering sustainable travel options. Commonly safaris are sold by tour agents located in the western world. They sell the safaris, but only part of the money comes to Tanzania to support the economy.

Typically, villages around famous national parks are the poorest of the poor. Our tours' profit comes to Tanzania and supports the Tanzanian economy and community development activities.

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your volunteer placement. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The volunteering outcome is learning to use and get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacity. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

The program is ongoing, and we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications from all students and alums. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.
