Karibu! Welcome to Tanzania.
Karibu means welcome in Swahili and it’s our great pleasure to invite you to visit our beautiful country and to enjoy the brilliant white beaches, wonderful climate, ancient culture, amazing wildlife and stunning natural beauty found here.
We realise that many volunteers like to combine their programme with safaris and mountain climbs while they have the opportunity in Tanzania to do so. The Foundation therefore arranges budget wildlife safaris, mountain trekking, beach holidays and cultural programmes. All safari programmes can be tailored to a volunteer’s specific interests. The income from our safari clients will be used for project development.
The following are some of the great destinations we invite you to enjoy with us:
ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK is remarkable for its range of habitats which include a miniature volcanic crater lake - Momella Lake. Walking activities are possible, as is the ascent of majestic Mount Meru, 4,566m above sea level!
TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK is scattered with baobab trees alternating with open acacia woodland, bush, plains, swamps, rivers and areas of palm trees. Big game and birds are abundant.
LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK nestles under the wall of the Great Rift Valley like a perfectly cut gemstone. This is one of the most popular and attractive parks on account of its tree-climbing lions and its bird life.
NGORONGORO CRATER - the Eden of Africa: truly the 8th wonder of the world. This is the largest intact crater in the world. It is blooming with acres of flowers such as blue, pink and white lupins, candle white lilies and many more awesome floral wonders. The concentrated numbers of wildlife are amazing.
SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK is one of the most unique wilderness areas of the world, fantastic in natural beauty and remarkable for its zebra and wildebeest migration. Serengeti’s low vegetation means that game viewing is relatively easy. Animals live in absolute freedom on seemingly endless plains.
MOUNT KILIMANJARO. Tanzania is the home of this, the highest mountain in Africa which is just 3 degrees south of the equator. Remarkably, its two peaks, Kibo (5,895m) and Mawenzi (5,149m), are still permanently snow-capped and expected to be so for the next 10 - 15 years. Ascent and descent is recommended to take 6-7 days. Kilimanjaro can be climbed by anyone of at least average fitness but is nonetheless a formidable and challenging undertaking. Ascents are supported by an experienced team of mountain guides and porters.
ZANZIBAR is a beautiful island with incomparable white sands about 23 miles off the East African coast. It has very romantic associations, with its smell of spices, images of narrow streets, Arabian carved chests and coral reefs. Zanzibar is a traveller’s paradise with tranquil, warm, tropical water.
So... Karibu! Come and enjoy this delightful country with us!!
