Welcome to International Scout Expeditions

Welcome to the home page of the Tanzania 2020 International Scout Expedition.

Every few years, we take a group of Explorer Scouts to Africa to complete a major community project. Examples and pictures from past projects can be found here.


We are currently working on plans for Tanzania 2020

The initial ideas is that this will be a multi-team expedition, so we are looking for around 150 Explorers (as of July 2020) and 30+ Leaders for the expedition.

The main area that the expedition will be run from will be Southern England, around the areas of Surrey, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset, West Sussex, Berkshire, IOW, GLSW, GLS, and GLSE

Or, you can register for interest (as either a young person or a leader) at Register Interest in Tanzania 2020

We are hoping to be able to launch the expedition in June / July 18.


What do we do on an expedition?
The expedition is usually broken down into three sections
a. Acclimatisation – Includes some sight seeing and relaxation.
b. Community Project Work – This is the main purpose and the main section of the expedition. There will be various Community Projects for 2020 (along the themes of Education and Medical)
c. Sightseeing, Safari and adventure activities such as Kayaking, Snorkeling etc.

Aims and Objectives of the expedition.

1. To return all team members safe and well to the UK.
2. To Develop Scouts from the UK, to have a deep appreciation of life in a third world country, to be able to work together as a team, to understand different peoples needs, to give support to all members of the team, and to become leaders of the future.
3. To Develop the leaders from the Leader Team to become better leaders, and expedition leaders of the future.
4. To complete a community project in a third world country, that substantially benefits the local community, which they can take ownership of the project.
5. To develop Scouting in the community of the country we visit.
