    Description

    A unique chance to work in stunning surroundings at the Safari Lodge on the eastern slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. The camp is set in 800 hectares of bush savanna on the edge of the beautiful caldera lake.

    We need someone to help with marketing expertise and ideas. Also someone practical to help with the general running of the Lodge, taking bookings and answering e-mail inquiries. You will be working under the Manager who has lived many years in Tanzania and is responsible for the day to day running of the lodge.

    We are only a 1 hour from Moshi town. so not out of touch with life in a town buzzing with volunteers, and a house where you can stay for free when in town.
