Meaningful. Sustainable. Unforgettable.
Just a short distance northwest of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro lies the Longido region, where you will spend the majority of your service work while in Tanzania. There, you’ll help reduce water scarcity that is brought on by severe droughts in the region by helping to dig pipelines and install water infrastructures. You’ll also get the opportunity to travel to the Ngorongoro region, where a stunning morning sunrise will set the pace for a day full of natural wonder on a real safari. Keep an eye out for the “Big 5” game animals: the African lion, elephant, leopard, rhinoceros and Cape buffalo.
