Ngerengere River Eco Camp

Non-governmental organization


Volunteerism is the concept that made the creation of Ngerengere River Eco Camp

possible. Due to lack of financial means, all projects rely on willing people eager

to contribute with ideas, skills and hard work. Most of these volunteers are local friends

that regardless of their own difficulties were

from the beginning willing to spare time for a

good cause.

Cultural exchange is also paramount in our

philosophy. This phenomenon enables exchange

of ideas, new global social networks, and new

horizons for both parties.




Volunteers can join all our projects such as

assisting in teaching and cooking at our

Happy Bricks primary school, planting

trees, joining new constructions at Camp or

supporting us in water and healthcare

projects. Please contact us to find out

which activities are needed in the time you

want to come.

Volunteers can get a deep insight into Tanzanian rural lifestyles with all the typical food,

cultural traditions and contact to villagers and also natural environment. 

Also several university students used the opportunity and gained experiences and

knowledge in their internships in our Organization!

Project initiators are also important for us! Project

proposals need to be related to either education,

environmental sustainability or income-generating

activities. Funds to initiate the project need to be

raised by the volunteer.  


You will be accommodated in the village Lukwambe at Eco camp where you will stay with

our local team and maybe with other guests or volunteers from all over the world. You can

stay in an Eco Camp house as single, or double or even with groups up to eight people.

Each house has its private bathroom with local shower.         

Eco Camp is the centre of our non-profit Organization. Sometimes we also arrange

workshops here, such as the manufacture of straw or clay objects, making Masai jewels

and much more. Workshops need to be arranged in advance and may have extra costs in

case specific materials are required.

We require a 2-week minimum

commitment and a fee of 95 US$ per

week, in exchange of accommodation and

three meals per day. We can offer you

extras like airport pick-up and Kiswahili

lessons. Fees can be further negotiated in

case of long term volunteering for more

than two months.

We use our limited funds mainly for our projects in the community, that is why you need to

pay a fee as a volunteer, in order to ensure proper services for you.


Enjoy our 100% organic and freshly cooked food! You will get three typical Tanzanian meals

per day! Our food is also suitable for vegetarian or vegan guests. We use fresh fruits and

vegetables from our own garden whenever possible.

If you want to learn some Tanzanian cooking, you can participate also in our kitchen.


Phones can be charged and lights can be used even at night, thanks to our solar powered

electricity. We also have internet access! Even though it is not very stable, receiving and

sending emails is possible.

We also offer airport pickups. An Eco Camp staff member can pick you up directly at the

airport and you can both take public transport or drive in a private car, depending on your

preference and financial situation.

All details for your internship or volunteering

experience can be worked out together with

us. Please feel free to contact us if you have any

questions. We welcome you very much to our

Ngerengere River Eco Camp!
