This gap year volunteer programme is an excellent way of becoming familiar with both Tanzania’s culture and its rich history. Not only will it make your trip more enjoyable, it will also help you to understand the life of the residents better and in doing so, make your stay more comfortable.
This Culture Week in Tanzania will begin with an introduction to local customs and language classes. As the week progresses you’ll find yourself visiting the town of Monduli with its bustling and developing township. You’ll also see museums, art galleries and monuments where you’ll learn about the country’s struggle with independence and progress.
Highlights include taking part in Tanzanian cooking classes and dining out in the local eateries. You will also have plenty of opportunities to explore around the town, as well as enjoy picnics and sightseeing outdoors.
Monday to Friday
Each morning starts with breakfast and every day includes exercise of some sort, whether it’s investigating the local town, going for a hike or even learning to cook Tanzanian-style. Language classes are also included, as are museum visits, handicraft classes and learning to cook like the locals. Both lunch and dinner are served daily. The final day will consist of a visit to your chosen placement.
