Summary
Art in Tanzania is running safari and tour operations in Tanzania as part of NGO fundraising. Interns develop guiding, tour development, and marketing of tours and safaris.

Details
Art in Tanzania looks for to differentiate in safari and tour business offering sustainable travel options. Commonly safaris are performed by tour agents located in the western world who sell the safaris but only part of the money then actually comes to Tanzania to support the economy. Typically, villages around famous National Parks are the poorest of poor. Art in Tanzania tour income comes in full to Tanzania and it is used to support the Tanzanian economy and profits used for community development activities.

Art in Tanzania tour operations includes National Parks and game reserves as Serengeti, N’gorongoro, Lake Manyara, Selous, Mikumi, and Ruaha. We also take tourists to Mt Kilimanjaro as well as to the Zanzibar Islands.

Participants assist in guiding tasks, to develop daily programs, in customer service and in marketing. Marketing is much as social media-based but we also develop networking to get us visible for our target groups around the world.

This is an ongoing program so you can start at any time. The program also includes hostelry activities and duties in the volunteer compounds including kitchen, canteen and bar operations.

We are using our Social Media pages for advocacy work and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.

Presently we are developing online and mobile platforms to reach children in rural Tanzania as the Rolling Stories https://rollingstories.com/showRoller.php?raw=1519131326051 

The working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday. Interns are working in a team of international and Tanzanian multi-professional intern teams. 

We provide in-country orientation and training and academic tutoring for the program.

The program is tutored by Mr. Kari Korhonen having some 20 years’ experience of the National parks and other tour programs in Tanzania.

Paid internships include a local minimum wage/stipend of $100 USD per month. We also offer stipends depending on the terms of the internship and regulations of your home university. 

Starting and end dates are flexible and can accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania. International flights, Student permit, accommodation, and meals are personal costs. 

We also offer participants with disabilities personal assistants and drivers at additional expenses; $30 USD per week. 24-hour general assistance is free.  

You and your visiting friends can enjoy sustainable tourism, safaris, and local tour options at low cost.
