Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 22 Days (27 with extension)
Location: Tanzania
Total Cost: $3,950



On this Challenge you get to spend two weeks working in the local community on a range of projects aimed at improving education quality and alleviating poverty in and around Arusha. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively while you volunteer with the community, before embarking on the ultimate adventure and trekking to the summit of Africa’s highest mountain!


what you'll be doing

You will spend your first two weeks immersed in the local culture in and around Arusha, working in one of our partner schools to deliver a range of educational workshops. You could be running sessions that focus on conversational English, life skills, the environment, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will engage the children and allow them to learn hands-on.


You will also have the chance to work on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!


the trek

The Kilimanjaro trek that you’ll embark on in your third week isn’t one for the faint-hearted. You’ll be going off the beaten tourist track and up the alternative Machame route, full of wildly beautiful scenery and great access to the remaining glaciers. This is a tough 6-day climb that you will need to ensure you train for in the months before to ensure that you can make it to the rooftop of Africa at 5,895m above sea level!


weekly structure

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your project days during your first two weeks will be Monday-Friday, with the weekend free to travel and explore. We recommend heading into Arusha city to explore all the vibrant culture has to offer! 


Extend your trip and experience a traditional african safari!

After your Challenge you can join our optional extension trip and explore the wonders of the Serengeti. You'll visit both the Tarangire and Manyara national parks where you'll be able to see over 100 species of birdlife, tigers, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and more! In the Ngorongoro Crater you'll get to go on a guided tour and be a bystander to the 30,000 animals of the Ngorongo Conservation Area. At the end of the trip you'll have time to explore the beautiful Arusha National Park while taking in the awesome views of Mt Kilimanjaro.
