NGERIV

Environment & Community Development

    

 Established in Bwawani village near Morogoro, Tanzania,

NGERIV was founded by locals, in a joint effort to  

bring development and opportunities to the area.

Alongside with the help of institutions and volunteers, both

national and  international, we believe that solutions are only

     efficient when thought and implemented by the beneficiaries themselves.


     Our main development goals are distributed in three inter-related areas:

  • Environmental sustainability
  • Alternative sources of income
  • Education

 

For those just wanting to visit, we provide lodge at our Eco Camp and an unique

cultural tourism experience. Mind you, we are not a tourism agency, with promises

of tribal dances, or fully catered safaris. But through our extensive social network

in the area, we facilitate authentic encounters between our guests and those living

more traditional ways of life in Africa.The truth is that, however curious they are, 

visitors should always regard this opportunity as a privilege.

Ngerengerere Eco Camp

Come visit us! An unique opportunity for authentic

cultural tourism in Tanzania.

You will experience the slow-paced African village life,

catch sight of wild animals at the Wami Mbiki Wildlife

Management and Mikumi National Park; visit and create

friendships with the Masaai community living in the area. 

 

In many ways, NGERIV started with the construction of our

Eco Camp. Through much effort and land donation by local

institutions our first dream came true!


Placed alongside the Ngerengere river bank, with monkeys swinging on the treetops, we

offer an open fire pit to gather round at night; a basic kitchen; a common area where we

also conduct workshops and meetings; plenty of beds and a camping site; solar power and

internet connection.


All materials were obtained locally. Wood, the main construction material, was provided

by the river's floating dead wood.


We accommodate volunteers at the camp and you are welcome to visit and spend few

nights with us to enjoy the surrounding nature and experience  African life.

Book directly with us through email , or visit us on Airbnb.

 Volunteer Programme

    Our growth depends on the volunteerism of

willing individuals as an essential source of

helping hands, new ideas and resources.

 

  Our needs fall into two categories:

 

  •  Volunteer placements

Due to the close relationship with the various institutions and people in the area, we can

offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities such as: Teaching; Orphanage;Eco Tourism;

Wildlife and Forestry Management; River Conservation, to name a few.

 

  • Project Initiators

 We need change makers to set up projects suitable to our needs. Access to knowledge

and funds are limited, and this can be tackled through the partnership with resourceful

individuals with good ideas and strong know-how skills. Project proposals must be related

with one of the following: education, nature conservation, or creation of sources of

income.
