Camp Tanzania Tanga 1 Month
Camp Tanga is a coastal paradise with lush palm trees and sea breezes. During your month in Tanzania you will make a measurable impact on this welcoming rural community. Work on improving school infrastructure and enjoy interacting with the local children. Get stuck in to building homes for vulnerable families, which will be 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 beach, go for a kayak, snorkel around or explore the local beach bars. Volleyball matches at Fish Eagle Point Beach are great fun; take part or just spectate.
