Reviews for Tanzania volunteering projects


review 23 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Our experience volunteering with the operator was unique and fulfilling. We had the opportunity to work with Tanzanians in schools and health centers, get to know the local staff and help a little with a building project, all of which were memorable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be aware that the lodging is not luxurious (cold showers), roads are rough and dusty. Project sites are often far apart, so a good amount of time is spent in the Land Cruiser. The staff was very attentive to our safety. Be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and insect repellent.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The projects include building water tanks for local villagers to supply them with a safe water source and latrines, along with education about sanitation. They also support health centers in remote areas and supply necessary medications. It is an organization that has far reaching impacts on the poorest local villagers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We had an outstanding and unforgettable experience. We would recommend it to adventurous people who want to interact with people in their authentic environment.
