Yes, I recommend this program

Amazing experience

My stay in Zanzibar was absolutely amazing. The staff members were always kind and tried their best to organize different activities for us to do. The camp was equipped with all necessities and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. I built some amazing new friendships with locals and with other volunteers. We all got to experience so many different things which taught us so much about the Tanzanian culture. Our task varied from farm work to teach children at schools about environmental education and planting trees. I stayed in Zanzibar for six weeks which was the perfect amount of time for me to get used to traditions, weather conditions and the work ethnic. As a conclusion I would say that volunteering in Zanzibar was the experience of a lifetime for me and I would recommend it to everyone.

What would you improve about this program?
The only issue that bothered me whilst being in Zanzibar were some visa problems that occurred which were not any staff members fault.
