Accommodation in Tanzania

Most of our volunteers stay together in the house of our co-ordinator Joshua Kuboja in Usa River, just a short commute from Arusha.  Joshua has a large building attached to his house which accommodates up to 8 people (when double beds are used), or up to 16 people during the busy summer period when bunk beds are used.

The accommodation is in the peaceful Arusha suburb of Usa River.  This means that the accommodation is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Arusha to be relaxing but also close enough and a short 20-30 minute commute for most of our placements.

The accommodation is unique in that it means that the majority of volunteers can stay together in group accommodation, but also retains a family feel.

In the evenings you can sit and relax with your fellow volunteers and gaze at the imposing Mt Meru which you can see from the veranda and on a clear day you can also so the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro.

Occasionally, you might stay with local families if your placement is difficult to get to from Usa River. Hostel and hotel accommodation is also available if you prefer at an additional cost.

The accommodation provided is very comfortable and spacious. The living room and bedrooms are equipped with fans. There is always electricity and plenty of water even though it may not always be running. Your meals will be provided at the accommodation with lunch being taken at the project.

Whether you are on a journalism placement, teaching or working in hospitals, all the placement participants stay together in the same area which means that you are never far away from someone to socialise with in the evenings or travel with at weekends. The standard of the accommodation will basic and not be what you are used to at home so please don’t expect all mod cons, but it will be clean and tidy.

Our manager in Tanzania, will be on hand during office hours if you have any general queries and only a phone call away outside office hours if there’s something much more urgent.
