Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit includes some of the most famous and remarkable sights in the world, such as the annual Wildebeest Migration and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.
Wild Things is working in co-operation with small communities in Southern Tanzania, which sees fewer benefits from tourism compared to the busier northern circuit areas. We are trying to provide local people with an alternative source of income other than the unsustainable exploitation of natural resources (for example logging).
So far we have set up a community owned campsite in Kilombero Valley, Southern Tanzania, where the money raised from guests goes into the village fund for building a well and eventually a primary school.PROJECT:ITETE We have also made arrangements with an old Mission in Kilombero - and in collaboration with a UK charity we are building an entirely new hospital, to be completed in August 2012 (contact us for more info).
Wild Things is supporting a very new re-forestation project in the Udzungwa Mountains region. The project is called A TREE FOR ME and they plan to plant an indigenous tree for every school child living in the area. If you would like to contribute and maybe visit the project please let us know.
Wild Things employs many local staff on safari and provides full training. It is our goal to help people to help themselves and improve the standards of living in a sustainable and responsible way.
A significant amount of your safari costs goes directly into the local communities.
We also encourage recycling projects, for example the manufacture of toy cars from waste tins etc.
For more detailed information on the Projects ask your safari consultant, who will put you in touch with the relevant field staff.

All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
