WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED:
Flights: Flights are not included in our program costs. However, GVA has partnered with an experienced and professional team of travel experts to help our volunteer travelers find the best flight deals for their trips with us. This travel specialist operates in the tailor-made, long haul multi-stop travel market, arranging complex airfares and transfers for independent travelers.
Visas and Work Permits: The United Republic of Tanzania, a member of the East African Community, allows citizens of all African countries to obtain a visa on arrival. Citizens of most other countries are urged to obtain a visa prior to entry to Tanzania to avoid any possible inconvenience at point of entry in Tanzania. Volunteers need a Tourist Visa to enter Tanzania; you can get it at the Tanzania airport. Once in the country all volunteers must apply for a “Volunteer Permit”. All participants in the Tanzania program must secure a permit to volunteer. All visitors must hold a passport valid for at least six months with at least one empty page.

Insurance: You'll need to buy appropriate travel insurance covering your participation on the program. You won't be able to go without the right travel insurance so double check to avoid disappointment. Please make sure that you're covered for the whole duration of your trip – from the day you leave your home to the day you return.
This Moshi-Kilimanjaro experience journey begins in Moshi town where volunteer travelers are to arrive a day before the start of the trip (we can accommodate, if need be). Volunteers spend most of their time in Moshi.
Moshi is a town in northern Tanzania, near the Kenyan border. It's known as a gateway to Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Trails run up the mountain’s cloud-ringed, snow-capped dome, through alpine forests and meadows home to elephants and leopards. One of Tanzania's major coffee-producing hubs, Moshi is known for its coffee farms and auctions
This is where you will be spending the most of your time. The people of this small town are some of the friendliest in the world. You will stay with a local family or live at the volunteer house and eat home cooked meals while experiencing local life there every day. You will travel daily through the beautiful neighborhood and share in local customs in many homes all while contributing to meaningful community development projects.
You will be involved in a wide range of projects, depending on your skills and interests. Volunteers will be working alongside a local team to ensure positive results of the project. Volunteers are stationed in walkable distances from accommodation to project worksite.
Our favorite thing at Go Volunteer Africa is being spontaneous and we love all the unplanned surprises we constantly come across during our travels. We provide a very free flowing schedule that also allows free time to spend doing whatever you’d like.
The objective of this unique volunteer travel adventure trip is to help more people gain the life changing, life affirming experiences that volunteering can give while experiencing the best Tanzania can offer. Throughout this entire trip, the goal is to make a positive impact on the local people while getting off the grid and experiencing local culture.

Day 1: Go Volunteer Africa will arrange a pickup for you, from the airport, hotel or guesthouse, at agreed time.

During the orientation you can choose from our diverse assortment of health, environment and socio-economic projects collaborating with local African partner NGOs.

You will surely be assisting with on-going programs in need of a helping hand. You can spend the first day helping to paint the classroom blocks, work with teachers, prepare meals for children, plant trees, train dance, musical instruments, and work with clinical officers or participate in the youth empowerment projects.

Marangu Route is the most popular, least difficult and the shortest way to Uhuru Peak. This route is also called the Tourist Route or the Coca Cola Route.
70% of all climbers choose this route, because most of the route consists of easy hiking. Marangu route climb on Mount Kilimanjaro Tours provide an easy attempt to the summit and success to many trekkers due to the addition day for acclimatization on the mountain. This route is fairly easy but the final part to the summit is still difficult. Although this route is the easiest, it has the highest failure rate due to bad preparation.
