Focus in Africa — Teaching Project
Volunteers support the local teachers in educating and playing with children. TEFL graduate volunteers are most welcome! They get involved in teaching English to children, teachers and local adults. (A TEFL qualification is useful but not required.) Volunteers help develop the children’s creative skills through crafts like painting, drawing, and coloring. They may also engage in developmental games with the children as well as singing and dancing with them. Volunteers are asked to assist with the general upkeep of the school to help maintain a pleasant learning environment.
Volunteer teaching in Tanzania Dates: Start any time all year.

Africa Safari Specialists
Has been arranging safaris for groups and individuals since 1987. We are experts at analyzing safari itineraries and understand the routing, travel time, and road and weather conditions involved in traveling from park to park. Our familiarity with the majority of ranches, lodges and tented camps, and our firsthand knowledge of the types of wildlife viewing available in the surrounding areas assure you of the most enjoyable safari for your interests and budget. We especially look for smaller, more personal, permanent tented camps and lodges and try to avoid the "safari circuit" and large group safaris.
