I would recommend anyone to volunteer in Tanzania. It is a safe and wonderful place, however I would never recommend MICATZ. The director is out to get the money. He is a dishonest, untrustworthy, lying person. My stay in Tanzania was amazing, but in no way thanks to him. I booked a safari through the director months in advance and it turned out that he didn't plan it until the day before. He also did not have the money to pay for my safari when it came time. Two others and myself had to pay even more money to actually go on the safari. All which he promised to pay us back with 4 days. It has now been over a month that I have returned home and he has not payed me the money of $390. Every time he lies and makes promises that he cannot keep. He is a poor business man and every time I had to deal with him it has been a struggle. I lost a lot of money, but nobody else should have to do that when volunteers just want is to feel safe and do good things for others. I would never use MICATZ again.
