Live alongside a Tanzanian fishing community on the beautiful Tanga coast and contribute to vital school projects and micro finance initiatives.
Spending time in Tanzania means you get to experience life at our breezy coastal Camp Tanga. You will make a measurable impact on the communities our camp is located alongside. A friendly welcome will greet you as you work on improving school infrastructure for the local children, building school desks or constructing classrooms. You definitely won’t be short of new friends. Get stuck in to building homes for vulnerable families and the elderly for a hugely rewarding experience. Work on environmental workshops, educating local school children on the importance of recycling. Clean the beaches and take part in our flip-flop recycling initiative.
Experience true cultural immersion as you cook with and learn from the inspiring local women. Chill out and soak up the laid back vibes of Tanga Town, relax on the white sand beach, go for a kayak, snorkel the tropical waters and explore the local beach bars. We’ll take you on a trek to swim in crystal clear waterfalls, the perfect way to relax after project work. You will leave Tanzania safe in the knowledge that you have made a real difference to each community’s quality of life and no doubt have made a difference to your own life in the process.
Usual working days are Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and will include the following activities.
You can top up your trip with a variety of adventure add-ons from mountain trekking, waterfall trekking to scuba diving in the beautiful Indian Ocean.
All of your in-country transfers are scheduled by us, including your airport pick up. We employ our own drivers and they will be there to greet you at the airport, holding a Camps International board so you can't miss them!
Our permanent and fully staffed camps are co-located with the communities with whom we work. Accommodation ranges from traditional thatched buildings to tents. All camps have clean toilets and private washing facilities (not all camps have hot water, but it is refreshing!), and all camps are designed to feel like your second home. There's nothing like chilling out at the end of the day around the camp fire, under the stars.
Our locally employed kitchen teams will provide you with three delicious meals a day. There's unlimited fresh drinking water and a real mix of local cuisine with some western classics to fill you up after a day of project work. Our kitchens always act as the heart of any camp and our staff work extremely hard to consistently create a great standard of food for most dietary requirements.
