One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities. We have a number of diverse projects in Tanzania that WWTrek guests can get involved with.

The Kilimanjaro Kids Community is HOP’s proudest achievement. This 4-acre orphanage sits in the shadow of Kilimanjaro and currently houses 12 Tanzanian children and 4 full-time staff. HOP has also been working at the Makuyuni Primary School to provide daily school lunches for the school’s 1,000 children, supporting the Mama Na M’toto women’s empowerment group in the village of Mto wa Mbu, as well as providing start-up funding to one of our long-time porters for his business, Bima’s Rice and Beans.


Best Time of Year to Visit:

The best time for wildlife viewing is during the dry season (June – October). Animals head to the grasslands to feed and congregate around water sources, enticing predators to stake out the watering holes. If you’re lucky, a dramatic chase may develop. June and July are the best months to catch Serengeti’s great migration, a spectacular sight of over 2 million zebra and wildebeest traveling together.

If you’d like to avoid the crowds during the popular dry season, you will still find plenty of fascinating wildlife viewing during the wet season. The wildebeest calving season (January – February) is a great time to see young, which can also lead to predator action. The wet season also offers spectacular green scenery and a kaleidoscope of migratory birds.

Arrivals & Departures

All flights should be made through the Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) located in Tanzania. Often arriving to this location is most easily done through Amsterdam (AMS) on KLM airlines (one direct flight daily). You will connect from AMS on KLM airlines into Tanzania (JRO).

*Many guests prefer to arrive before, or leave after, the scheduled itinerary. We can help you make arrangements. Additional charges for early arrival, transportation, lodging, meals, and activities will apply.

Recommended Flights

International airfares are not included in program pricing. Although there are many flight options to Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), flying through Amsterdam offers the best route. While World Wide Trekking does not book flights ourselves, we would be happy to recommend a great travel agent to assist you. Contact your adventure specialist for details.

Our preferred flight route: Home Airport – AMS – JRO (one direct flight daily on KLM airlines)

We also recommend that you protect your flight with travel insurance and a refundable ticket. Contact AIG Travel Guard to get more information.

Customs, Visas, & Immigration:

Upon clearing customs in Tanzania, you will be required to purchase a 12-month multiple-entry tourist visa for $100. Please bring cash, as exact change is required. In addition, you will need a one-hundred dollar bill that is less than ten years old. Please keep your landing card (received in flight) and a pen handy for customs.

Contact G3 Global Services for more information on how to complete your visa prior to your arrival.

*Note: Please be sure to have at least six months validity on your passport. Most countries won’t allow travelers in their country unless their passport is expected to expire six months after the last day of travel. Make two copies of your passport, leave one at home and bring the other with you to Tanzania. Ensure you provide a copy of your passport to WWTrek 90-days prior to your departure date.

Currency Exchange:

We recommend exchanging money at the airport as soon as you clear customs. We will offer additional exchange opportunities, but typically you will receive the best rates at the airport. Exchanging $100 should suit your needs for the safari. We always recommend bringing $500 cash with you on your trip for incidentals.



Tanzania is one of the world’s oldest inhabited regions. For three million years man has roamed its regions, savannas to mountains, carving out an existence from the African countryside. Drawn to exotic Africa, explorers have tried to tame her wildness to no avail. The story of Tanganyika, Tanzania, is one of unaltered wilds and progressive politics. “Kilimanjaro,” according to the President of Mozambique, Chissano, “carried the torch that liberated Africa.”

Tribes of Tanzania

Sukuma comprise the largest tribe with three million Tanzanians. Living in the northwestern area of Tanzania, they speak Bantu and are traditionally cattle herders and farmers of subsistence crops such as cassava.

Nywamwezi, also known as the “people of the moon,” are the second largest tribe in Tanzania. Similar to the Sukuma, they are also historically cattle herders, farmers, and Bantu speakers. Living in the northwest of Tanzania, near Lake Victoria, the tribe has about 1.5 million members.

The third largest tribe of Tanzania reside on the south and eastern slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and Mosh. The Chaga speak Kichagga, a Niger-Congo language. They were one of the first tribes to convert to Christianity. Among the richest and most powerful people in Tanzania, they hold a strong sense of identity. Known for their advanced farming techniques, trade, and politics, they thrive as a successful tribe.

Descended from Persia, the Shirazi make up the majority of the people of Zanzibar island. They speak Swahili and practice Sunni and Shia Islam.

Culture & Religion:

Tanzanians bear a surprisingly strong national association, or ujamaa (family-hood). They rarely identify themselves by tribe upon an initial meeting. This collective attitude comes from the Julius Nyerere days and his push to unify over 120 tribes in a socialistic type society. This national mindset allows Tanzania a relatively peaceful existence with tribes coexisting. Christians and Muslims live side by side with minimal friction.


The official currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian shilling abbreviated TZS. TZS replaced the East Africa shilling in 1966 and is abbreviated TZS. Currency exchangers subdivide the shilling into 100 senti and it is written as x/y where x is the amount over one shilling and y is the senti. Due to the fluctuating exchange rates, we recommend searching online to find out the current rate.
