Whilst your Scouts or Guides are on expedition to Tanzania they will learn a variety of different skills from tracks and signs to how to make axe handles, how to fell trees and split logs for firewood. They will learn how to sharpen the panga (machetes) and how to use them safely. Firewood management and collection are an vital part of any expedition to Tanzania and we demonstrate best practice and encourage the development of new skills.

When we are in the remote bush the Scouts and Guides will be taught how to arrange camp safely with watch fires and lanterns so that the armed ranger has a clear field of vision. When hiking we focus on how to cross the bush safely and on navigation skills. We will teach them to track lion and elephant and to recognize danger signals showing areas to be avoided when on foot. We have a perfect safety record for our expeditions to Tanzania in over ten years of operation.

Cooking is an important part of any expedition. We teach Scouts and Guides how to slaughter (depending how many are in the group we prepare: chickens, ducks, sheep, goats,a pig or a cow) and how to skin and clean the meat. Then of course the best part is preparing a huge roasting pit and making a big fire to produce enough embers to cook the meat slowly for several hours. This takes the Scouts and Guides through the whole process from live animal to succulent food for the team.

The Scout Camp Duty team is assisted by one of the excellent Wild Things Cooks who will make sure that they learn how to cook rice and prepare local vegetables in a healthy manner. This way food hygiene and quality are assured and the expedition is a lot happier and able to achieve more.

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

  • We had a really great vacation on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania and wonderfully facilitated by our driver/guide Salim who was really first class - a great representative of Wild Things.

  • 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.
