During weekends you can participate in shorter excursions like for example a visit to “Arusha National park”, the closest national park to Arusha town. Arusha National Park is often overlooked by safari goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours.
If the start dates for the excursion do not fit with your volunteer work stay, the coordinator can arrange a break in your volunteer job, so you can return to work after the safari or trek.
