Ngerengere River Eco Camp

Non-governmental organization


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

possible. Due to  alack of financial means, all projects rely on motivated people eager

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

regardless of their own difficulties, were 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 construction sites at our

Camp or supporting us in water and healthcare

projects. Please contact us to find out

which activities will be needed at 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 the natural environment. 

Several university students used the opportunity as well and gained experiences and

knowledge during 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 near 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 alone, as a couple or in groups up to ten people.

Each house has its private bathroom with a typical Tanzanian shower.         

Eco Camp is the center of our non-profit organization. Upon request, we also arrange

workshops here, such as the manufacture of drums, local sandals and Masai jewels. We also

offer basic and intensive Kiswahili language courses.


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 join our kitchen team.


Volunteers pay a basic fee for food and accomodation and additional costs depending on

extras such as airport pickups, workshops and trips. Since these fees depend also on the

duration of your stay and the number of guests, you are welcome to make a price inquiry.

We will happily get back to you with an offer tailored to your needs.


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!
