Travel Info

There are so many things to see and do in Tanzania and we absolutely want you to get the most out of your trip so we have incorporated comprehensive travel assistance into all our volunteer packages. We will help you with everything from the boring admin stuff to the more exciting extra curricula activities like safari planning and Zanzibar getaways.

Here at KATz we understand that there is loads to organise before you end up at the airport. We also understand that the admin side of things can often be daunting, frustrating and quite time consuming which, if you’re working or studying can prove quite stressful. Since we have done it before we would love to help with all your Tanzania travel plans, cause lets face it, you have other things to concentrate on, like how to fit everything in your backpack.

We will provide you with information and resources that will assist you in getting the best deals on flights and travel insurance and we will even loan you our personal contacts because we know you can trust them.

Trying to find a reputable safari company can be quite the challenge, as can booking accommodation throughout Tanzania and in Zanzibar. KATz have eliminated the arduous task of searching online by offering personalised safari adventures and Kilimanjaro Treks specially tailored to volunteer’s needs and budgets. Your safari KATz and Kili KATz experiences are guaranteed fun with other like-minded volunteers.

We know that travel is a personal thing and we will accommodate individual needs, so if you’re super organised and need everything done well before you leave that’s perfectly fine. On the other hand if you’re the spontaneous type who wants to play it by ear til you’ve had the chance to settle into your placement and meet other volunteers then we will work with that too.

Just to give you an idea, here is a sneak peek at a few things that need to be organised before you depart:

  • Visas
  • Travel Insurance
  • Flights
  • Vaccinations
  • What to pack

And then there’s the ‘must do while you’re in Tanzania’ List:

  • Lose yourself on Safari
  • Soak it up in Zanzibar
  • Exhaust yourself Trekking Mount Kilimanjaro

Of course there are many other things to do and we will keep you up to date with any local festivities that are on during your time in Tanzania.

Once you have booked your placement we will be in frequent contact with you to assist with all travel plans.

Please note that while we are able to offer assistance with all your travel plans there are restrictions to what we can do. We are unable to book your flights or provide medical advice in relation to vaccinations. Visa and Travel Insurance applications require forms to be completed by the applicant and sent direct to them. In these instances we will advise of Government departments and reputable, well priced companies and direct you to their websites where you will be able to carry out the application process with ease.
