TWO WEEK VOLS AND SEVEN DAY TOUR. MINIMUM 2 PEOPLE.

Volunteers/ tourists could be met at Moshe/ Arusha and taken to their accommodation on arrival. We should advice that vols/ tourists should arrange flights to Nairobi, getting the shuttle bus into Arusha,  but that these flights leave from Dar. BA offer such flights. 
Monday-Friday and then Monday-Wednesday of the following week vols work on a water project.

 Thursday and Friday volunteers could do the two day Longido cultural tour. This educates people all about the culture of the Masai letting tourists see how these people live their lives and are adapting to the changes going on around them.

Following week

Starting on the Sunday volunteers do a three day safari to Manyara or Terengire and to Engorongoro Crator. First night will be in guest house at Mto Wa Umbo or Karatu after having seen Manyara or Terengire and then the second night vols can camp in luxury tents at the viewpoint to Engorongoro.

On the third day they will descend into the crator for a game drive and then be taken back to Arusha on that day. The next morning on the Wednesday vols will get a connection flight to Zanzibar. Here they will spend the rest of their time. On the Wednesday they can stay the night in Stone Town and be collected the next day to be taken to the gorgeous Kendwa Rocks beach resort.

Here they will have two days to relax and can choose from any of the activities that can be arranged at this resort. These will not be included in the price. On the Saturday morning they can be taken to the airport to get a connection flight to Dar so they are in Dar on the Sunday as this is when their flight will leave for home.
