About

Tanzania is developing at an extreme pace. While tourism has been big in Tanzania for many years (being one of Africa's top tourist destinations with attractions including Mt. Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar), the level of professionalism of many other sectors is increasing and already of good standard. Now it is a good time to get to know the work conditions of Tanzania.

* Sustainable Development

Clean climate footprint when travelling with World Unite!

Did you know that for the CO2 compensation of your long-haul flights we are planting 10 indigenous trees on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania for each participant of our worldwide programs? These trees during their life will absorb around 10 times the amount of CO2 emitted by your flights. Per year we are planting around 20,000 trees on deforested land of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Yes, I recommend this program

Loved staying in Tanzania with WorldUnite

There was always a really good communicationstructur in the organisation. In Moshi we had a local assistant who was always there for us in case of need and for every questions.
My time in Tanzania was one of the best experience in my life. I got a feel for the real life in Africa and I enjoyed the time. I wished I could have stayed longer.

What would you improve about this program?
There could be organised language courses in suaheli for all of the trainee who are at the same town.
