Wild Things is has worked in cooperation with the Scout and Guide Association to find projects in Tanzania and to arrange cooperation with local Tanzanian Scout troupes. To date we have been instrumental in the cooperation between several UK based Troops (of both Scouts and Guides) and the Tanzanian Scout Association which has brought about the construction of a Medical Centre to serve 20,000 people in the the remote village of Itete. This medical centre project was a relatively large project with a approximate budget of $130,000. This money was raised by the UK Scouts, Wild Things Safaris and a UK charity, the African Space Trust.

In addition to finding and assisting with the logistics of Tanzania projects for Scout and Guide Troops to become involved in Wild Things provides field training in essential scouting skills like the use and maintenance of sharps like machetes, axes and saws. We teach how to slaughter and prepare a range of meat from chickens to 9okg pigs! We teach tracks and signs and general bush-craft including how to find water from water vines or sip wells. Our chefs work with the scout camp duty team to teach them how to bake bread, clean and cook rice etc. ensuring an excellent standard of food is enjoyed by all. We have never had a food related case of dysentery on one of our expeditions.

We arrange specialist hikes for Scout and Guide Troops coming Tanzania ranging from climbing Kilimanjaro to crossing the Selous Game Reserve on foot.

From the moment your Scout or Guide group land in Tanzania our local staff will be with you to translate and ensure you get the most out of your time in Tanzania. We will arrange the liaison with the local Tanzanian Scout Association (with whom we have an excellent working relationship) and seamlessly take care of all the in country transport arrangements.

Please contact us if you are interested in bringing your Scout or Guide Troop on expedition to Tanzania.

  • 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.
