Travel to Tanzania with FFCC

FFCC travels to Tanzania Africa twice a year, once in late January/early February and again in mid-June. We have been taking teams to Tanzania since May 2007. The trips are typically two weeks long depending on flight cost & availability. The trip cost will range from $3,800 - $4,800. The summer trip is more expensive due to higher air fare. Tanzania is a popular tourist destination due to the spectacular safari parks and Mount Kilimanjaro is also a popular destination for its climbing expeditions.

The Cost of the trip includes:

    • Air fare
    • Lodging
    • Meals
    • Transportation
    • Supplemental medical insurance policy
    • Work permit fee
    • Special project fee

Cost does not include:

    • Passport application or renewal fee, if applies
    • Necessary immunizations & prescription costs (i.e. malaria prophylaxis & antibiotic)
    • Souvenirs/spending money
    • Airport meals
