Africa Community Service Trip late Feb – mid March 2020

Posted on Oct 10, 2019


Join The Livingroom in Tanzania late Feb – mid March 2020!

We are so excited to return and keep building momentum with the projects we have worked on, on our previous trips.

Since our visits in 2017 & early 2019 we have established the Communities Assist Yoga Program in collaboration with The Africa Yoga Project, the Sustainable Practices Education Centre (SPEC) build has been completed and is now running educational courses in Permaculture, and the Child Sponsorship Program has been developed! There is so much work to be done and a lot of exciting projects you can help with. This is your opportunity to join us and help make a difference…

Details as below- 

  • Dates: Thursday 27th February > Sunday 15th March 2020
  • Location: Moshi, Tanzania- Rainbow Ridge is at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro. Plus Zanzibar Island stay.
  • Accommodation: Moshi- Keys Lodge (11 nights), Zanzibar- Panga Chumvi Beach Resort (3 nights). Accommodation is modest but comfortable.
  • 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 AUD:

  • Flights: $2400 return QATAR (Syd>Doha>Kilimanjaro>Zanzibar>Doha>Syd)
  • Insurance: $200
  • Accommodation: $70-$90 per night
  • Meals: $50 per day

These are just approximate costs, it may cost you anywhere from $5-6k in total depending on the exchange rate at the time of booking, and any additional extras you may buy while over there.

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

We’re adding 3x nights in Zanzibar on the way home to rest and restore after our volunteer work. If you are on a budget or have restrictions with travel dates you can skip this part of the trip (although we highly recommend it). If you would like to add a Safari onto your trip our travel agent can also organise this add on for you.

Below are where we have stayed in the past, both spots were AMAZING:
Safari: Ngorongoro Farm House website
Serengeti: Kirawira Tented Camp 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.
