I stayed at Eco Camp for 12 days in October 2016. Compared to my life in Germany, life in Eco Camp was like in a different world. It was very interesting to experience the way of life at Eco Camp and in the village of Lukwambe. The team at Eco Camp was great and very helpful. I think back to my time at Eco Camp almost everyday and I am glad that I made my experiences there. Besides helping out at Eco Camp you have a lot of time to relax, read books, go for walks etc.If you are interested in a life in the Tanzanian bush, Eco Camp is the right place for you!
Thank you for a wonderful time at Eco Camp!
I miss Eco Camp very much. I spent two months with amazing people in a beautiful landscape. The Eco Camp is a Tanzanian paradise. The food is delicious and very healthy, the environment is very clean and the work the Eco Camp does to improve the nearby villages is unrivaled. Volunteering at Eco Camp is a great way to understand how rural Tanzanians live and to experience their culture, which is very different from the cities.
Mr. Remmy is a very intelligent man who works very hard to better the lives of the villagers. He has many ideas and believes in the vision he has established at Eco Camp. If you visit you will understand his passion. I will never forget the conversations we had over the campfire and the stories shared.
I miss waking up to a beautiful morning in Africa, I miss Mama's cooking, I miss seeing the monkeys in the trees at the Camp, I miss the chameleons, I miss walking through Lukwambe village, I miss the Lukwambe football games, I miss the children at school, I miss playing BS and Last Card and Speed, I miss the people: Godi, Lenini, Katabazi.
I recommend that to fully experience the culture and the work the organization does, you must stay at least a month. If you can stay more, it will be even better. This organization and the land deserve long-term volunteers and visitors.
I hope to return very soon.
Missing Eco Camp,
Thank you for the great time at Eco Camp again!
I was so happy to see you all again, i missed Eco Camp.
Moreover, I asked Remmy if he can find a good international cooperating Organization for me for an internship, as he has many contacts to other NGOs in Morogoro and Dodoma region. After a short time, Remmy had organized already everything for me, even an accommdation and the internship was perfect!
So, don´t fear to ask Remmy anything you need to know, as he is cooperating with many other NGOs he can even help you organizing any voluntary work/internship in any work you are interessted in.
Thank you for all your support,Lovly greetings to the family,Lucy
Being back in Germany, I miss to be at Eco Camp:I miss the silence, the delicious, various food (even for me as vegetarien), the daily campfire, the sometimes exhausting work, the visits in the village and the lovely Massai family, the bush around us, the river and I miss to talk, work and have so much fun with all of you: Remmy, Silvanus, Suzi, Katabazi, Lugha, Artisan, June.Volunteering at Eco Camp gives you a very good insight to the life in rural areas in Tanzania, which seems so diffrent from the life in the cities. You can see the problems Lukwabe´s people are facing and then the brilliant work this Organization does to improve peoples lifes.I can only recommend to volunteer with Eco Camp and to live in that time in a so much diffrent world, but which feels like home.Thank you so much and all my respect to you, for putting all your effort for the villagers.I hope, one day I will come back.
Hi elder Remmy.How is there at Ngerengere River?Its long time.How things are going over there?Congrats for opening a school to help our entirely remoteness communities to get education near by.We are praying for you.
I can't thank you enough for all of your help, extreme hospitality and kindness! The determination and energy you show every day is very motivating and i will not forget everything I've learnt from my stay with you at Eco Camp. It pleases me to know there are people like you in this world dedicating their time to creating positive changes for the community and the environment.
To anyone considering getting involved in the NGERIV Organisation: i urge you to do so. I can guarantee you will learn a lot and whatever your area of expertise, you will be able to assist directly in the everyday activities and pursuits.
The location of the Eco Camp itself is beautiful; there is much wildlife and you can live in harmony with nature. The guys at the camp always make a fun and relaxed atmosphere and are forever happy to help you out when needed. I was very comfortable living there. The environment is so safe and everyone i met in the surrounding villages were hugely welcoming and pleasant-as are the majority of Tanzania. Also, I can honestly say during my 4 week stay, coming from England, i was not once bored of the food. It is all locally grown, organic and Moshi is a superb cook!
THANK YOU Remmy and everyone at Eco Camp.
All the best to you and your family.
During our 2 week stay at EcoCamp we had an excellent time amongst pristine nature and great people. The entire team is very welcoming and friendly so that we always felt like being at home. The accomodations and food are excellent and the nature surrounding the camp very reenergizing. On top of that we worked on various projects, like gardening, tree planting, bee hive construction and teaching. All of our time and exchange of ideas directly and indirectly contributed to the local communtity and to the preservation of the surrounding nature. This is something rare to encounter and we feel lucky to have stumbled upon this place. We highly highly recommend going there and personally know we will one day return to this paradise. Ludo&Cecile
We want to congratulate you, Remmy, for the wonderful mission you realize in your life and the amazing inspiration we had in the intense days in the camp! I believe that this world will change only if we have more conscious leaders who are willing to dedicate themselves to change and work for the ones who need us! It was an incredible way to feel it with our heart and own hands together with everyone there!
We will always admire and be here to help however we can! We wish all the best positive energy in the universe and fulfillment always! Take care and please share with us when the school with ready and the opening ceremony.
Sharing with you Eco Camp has been a really nice and enrichment experience. I stayed there for 3 weeks and I have learned a lot of things. It was great to meet all the daily tasks and to exchange all the ideas every night at the fire place! Thanks a lot for making us feel as part of your project.
For anyone who is thinking of staying with the Eco Camp, you will not be disappointed! I stayed here for just over 3 weeks and the people of the eco camp were welcoming and treated you as family. There is a wide variety of work to be done which kept the time here interesting from teaching to hauling materials to building. I would strongly recommend you stay here.
