UNITE Tours are truly adventures of a lifetime. We are excited to be working with a few of the best outfitters in Tanzania to combine traditional safaris with field visits to UNITE’s many partner non-profit organizations across the country. Together we are busy creating all kinds of new cultural and voluntourism opportunities in Tanzania, personalizing experiences and affording many unique opportunities to learn, share and discover in all the ways that are most important to YOU.
Whether you want to spend time reading in classrooms, playing football or music with children, celebrating with the Maasai, hunting with the Hadzabe and/or touring some of the most advanced medical centers in the country, UNITE can make it happen… all before or after your journey deep in to the bush where you can experience the greatest concentration of wildlife on Earth as humans have for thousands of years.
With UNITE, you are received as friends more than tourists, allowing you to create relationships that we hope will last for many years to come. Our work is to ensure that your experience of Tanzania is magical and true… Come with us, share your passions and receive all the gifts Tanzania has to offer.
Great social transformations begin with public awareness and engagement. Each of us has a role to play and a chance for leadership. When possible, travel. There is no substitute for seeing extreme poverty. Get your business, community, church or student group active in some aspect of sustainable development. If the public leads, politicians will surely follow. There is no substitute for meeting and engaging with people across cultures, religions, and regions to realize that we are all in this together.
Our generation’s greatest challenges – in environment, demography, poverty, and global politics – is also our most exciting opportunity.
Ours is the generation that can end extreme poverty. Most of all we will need to subdue our fears and cynicism. For in the final analysis, our most basic common links is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s futures. We are all mortal.
Why have we not reached our solutions yet? In part, paralysis reigns.
