Tanzania brings up the quintessential images of Africa following the drama of the wildebeest migration along an infinite savannah, the incongruous snow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, proud Masai warriors stalking the plains and the exotic palm-fringed beaches on the spice islands of Zanzibar. Throngs of wildlife roam free in sprawling national parks, fishermen still plough through the turquoise waters off the coast in dhows and pristine beaches are all a part of the beauty and serenity of Tanzania. Equally important the welcoming people and culture await volunteers coming to this magnificent country. Tanzania is home to over 120 different ethnic groups and takes pride in its multicultural heritage. Known as the Swahili Coast, Tanzania has 503 miles of sublime coastline. Tanzania is an equally challenging and satisfying volunteer experience.
