Tanzania is an attractive and enthralling East African country in which to spend some time on a volunteer project or work experience placement. Our voluntary projects in Tanzania are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a gap year, career break or as summer work experience while studying.
Borderless Tours & Safaris offers Educational and Medical projects in Tanzania, based in and around the town of Arusha in the north of Tanzania. Arusha sits at the foot of Mount Meru volcano, which forms an impressive silhouette above the low rise skyline of the town. Arusha is a popular place for tourists to arrange their safari trips and tourism and plays a large role in the city’s and country’s economy.
Borderless Volunteers in Tanzania live with local host families. This allows Volunteers to experience Tanzania from a local’s perspective and exchange local cultures, a very different world from the often luxurious hotels of the safari and tourism industry.
Volunteering Placements in Tanzania
Tanzania is an intensely varied and colourful land on the East coast of Africa. Home to Africa’s highest Mountains, largest Lakes, huge Wildlife Reserves and hundreds of paradise Beaches, it is without doubt one of Africa’s most appealing destinations and a superb introduction to the African continent.
Tanzania has existed as a nation since 1964 after Britain granted Zanzibar independence and it combined as a country with the previous British colony of Tanganyika. Tribal traditions and over one hundred years of colonial influences have produced an exciting, modern Tanzanian culture. Although Tanzania remains one of the least developed countries in the world, the economy has improved greatly in the last forty years and the country’s political stability forms a solid base for continued growth.
Healthcare and education have also improved since independence and volunteers working in schools, care homes and medical institutions can help this progress to continue. Please send us email or Call us via the phone numbers or locate us via the addresses in the Contacts page for more information.
