See more of Tanzania with our
weekend trips

From long safari weekends to relaxing on the beaches in Zanzibar

As with everything in life though it pays to be organised. So if you plan on seeing Tanzania on one of our amazing weekend trips and would like to be guaranteed a place please book well in advance of travel.

You can simply add this weekend trip when applying for any programme in Tanzania under ‘Optional Extras’. If you’ve already signed up for one of our volunteer programmes in Tanzania and would like to add this weekend trip, then you can simply request this within your My Trip account. Please note that places on our weekend trips are non-refundable and non-transferable.

We operate a number of amazing weekend trips every month that allow you to explore the country as a group with your new-found friends. The structured itinerary will allow you to make the most of your free time and we have maximised time to provide you with something different and exciting every day.

A member of our local team who knows the country inside out, will accompany you throughout the trip (not in Zanzibar). Not only will you get to share all of their knowledge, but the trip will be even more enjoyable and safe.
