Volunteer Tanzania


Volunteering Tanzania

There are many volunteer opportunities to work in Tanzania from working in underprivileged and impoverished communities, to working with children affected by HIV/AIDS to teaching in schools assisting in orphanages and even conservation and wildlife preservation work. If you do volunteer in Tanzania remember its also an awesome place to visit for tourist activities when you are in the country from the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and, of course, Mount Kilimanjaro.

Please note that many volunteer opportunities in Tanzania were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic which led to the permanent closure of some volunteer opportunities and restrictions on others. Hopefully things are now beginning to return to normal. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Tanzania let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
