Africa Service Trip | 16-28 February 2019

Posted on Oct 25, 2018


Join Mari & Georgia in Tanzania February 2019!

We are so excited to return and be of service. Since our last trip to Tanzania in 2017 the kids are practicing Yoga once a week, the Sustainable Practices Education Centre (SPEC) has been built, and the first course (in permaculture) starts next month!

So it’s time to go back and build on the programs we hope to offer going forward- Yoga classes, Music lessons, Permaculture courses and many more to come.

Details as below- 

  • Dates: 16th February > 28th February 2019
  • Location: Moshi, Tanzania. Rainbow Ridge is at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro
  • Daily schedule: Morning Yoga at our hotel > day at Rainbow Ridge volunteering > afternoon meditation/reflection back at the hotel > dinner

This is not technically a Yoga Retreat, rather an opportunity to put Yoga into action and be of service for 10 days, and connect with the children and the project.

We are not charging anything to be your guides over the 10 days, you will just need to pay the travel expenses.

Below is a break-down of approx. costs:

  • Flights: $2400 return (Syd>Doha>Kilimanjaro)
  • Insurance: $200
  • Accommodation: $70 per night
  • Meals: $50 per day

These are just approximate costs, it may cost you anywhere from $4-5k in total depending on your holiday spending habits- mind you there is not much to buy when there asides from food.

You can organise all of the above with our travel agent who will book you the same flights, accommodation, and transfers as us. Her details are below and she is expecting inquiries so just let her know you’re coming with us:

Flight Centre Coogee Mereana – 93157744
mereana.george@flightcentre.com.au

FLIGHTS: QATAR
ACCOMODATION: Keys Lodge- check it out here
(accommodation is modest but comfortable)

If you would like to make the most of your trip to Africa you may want to add a Safari and/or a trip to Zanzibar island after your 10 days of service. Again, our travel agent can organise this add on for you. Let us know if this is something you would like to do and we can connect you to others who are hoping to do the same.

Below are where we went last time, both spots were AMAZING:
Safari: Ngorongoro Farm House website
Zanzibar: Kandwa Rocks website

We are calling anyone who feels they have something to offer. There is a lot to be done and very bit of help counts! Some examples of volunteering required: Yoga classes, Music sessions, Photography & Videography for Communities Assist marketing, Permaculture/gardening, Building/labouring, Painting, health & education services etc.
