The Total Tanzanian Experience
14 Day Volunteer and Wildlife Safari
Tanzania or Mt. Kilimanjaro Summit

Many tour operators wisk you from your airport arrival to the National Parks with little or no local cultural component. We have a unique option! Spend equal time in a local village volunteering at Fr. Christmas Academy (a school founded by TSF!) and the beautiful National Parks of Tanzania or Mt. Kilimanjaro climb.
You will get culturally immersed in the daily life of a Tanzania village.

We have trips arriving on the second Saturday of each month (No trips in April due to rainy season) Please note June and December no children in school due to school holidays)

We offer two volunteer trips:  wildlife safari or Mt. Kilimanjaro Summit
