Hiking the great outdoors in Tanzania

Nature, team work and the great outdoors were all part of the hiking experience some of our senior primary students enjoyed last month.

More than 20 students took part in a Twiga group hike around the local Moshono area to appreciate the local plant and animal life, as well as learn about hiking etiquette and safety.

Participants brought along trail maps, binoculars and sketch pads or journals to record their outdoors experience. They were given hiking etiquette guidance, including knowing the layout of your area, safety precautions to be taken, knowing your route and how to be mindful of others while enjoying nature.

To make sure parcels arrive and incur no expenses for the school

  • Please do NOT register or insure any mail as it costs the school at least USD $25 in taxes at our end.
  • Mark all parcels as being “second-hand goods” or “personal gifts”.
  • Ensure the description of goods written on the parcel matches the actual items inside as customs and postal staff frequently inspect contents of parcels.
  • Please label all parcels clearly with the first and last name of the recipient and your full name.
  • Please put the value of the package at no more than US$10 (the lower the better).
  • Ensure that your parcel is LESS THAN 2KG. We have been advised that parcels less than 2KG are technically tax-free regardless of content, but this is not guaranteed by all postal workers.

Tax-free items include books, personal goods and anything that is not new. Used goods, used clothes, etc…(please remove labels and packaging from all items before sending them)

Keep in mind that parcels sent by airmail can take up to four months to get here (sea mail is even longer – often 12+ months!), so don’t worry if it takes a while for us to let you know the parcel has arrived.
