Wildlife volunteering in Tanzania

August 19th, 2009 | by Nick |

Spend up to ten weeks in Tanzania working as a wildlife volunteer. The first week kicks off with lessons from a Maasai on language and culture. Then spend weeks living in a Maasai village where you will undertake vital conservation (mostly wildlife conservation) work on behalf of the African Wildlife Foundation, in an area often referred to as the Mini Serengeti due to its high abundance of wildlife.
