Summary

Art in Tanzania runs safari and tour operations in Tanzania as part of NGO fundraising. Interns help develop the tour programs, guiding and marketing our tours and safaris.

Details

Art in Tanzania looks to set itself apart from the crowd regarding safari and tour business by offering sustainable travel options. Commonly safaris are sold by tour agents located in the western world. They sell the safaris, but only part of the money comes to Tanzania to support the economy.

Typically, villages around famous national parks are the poorest of the poor. The profit we get from our tours comes to Tanzania and is used to support the Tanzanian economy and community development activities.

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your internship. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The internship outcome is learning to use and get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacity. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.
