Accommodations:

In the Kilimanjaro region, our participants stay in a volunteer house in the village of Tengeru. The house is owned by our program coordinator in Tanzania who is a very well-respected member of the community and goes to great lengths to make sure participants are taken care of. Accommodations are quite nice by rural Tanzanian standards. Participants will have either a private or shared bedroom with secure storage (volunteer must provide own padlock). Bathrooms are shared with the rest of the house. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast and dinner daily.

Volunteers in Dar es Salaam and the Maasailand stay with local host families. ELI truly believes that this is the best way to fully immerse in another culture and get the most from an international experience. All families are carefully screened and are well-respected members of the community with at least one family member who speaks English. Participants will have either a private or shared bedroom with secure storage (volunteer must provide own padlock). Bathrooms are shared with the host family. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast and dinner daily.
*Note: In the Maasailand, accommodations are very rustic. There is no running water or electricity.

Arrival Dates:

Participants should try to arrive on a Friday in order to complete orientation over the weekend and start working on their projects the following Monday.
