I'm wondering if anyone has tips on which months would be the best for volunteering in Tanzania, probably Dar es Salaam. I'll be there for about 6 weeks, and I'm trying to decide whether to go in June & July or August & September. The weather and the fact that it is peak season are making me hesitant about June & July. Any suggestions?? I'd also like to get some travel in there either before or after volunteer work. I'm hoping to visit Rwanda (Kigali) and Kenya, as well as getting in a safari. Any advice? For example, I'm not sure how much time to dedicate to the side trips, Rwanda and a safari. By the way .. I'm traveling alone also, and it is my first time in Africa.
