Fantastic Experience of a lifetime!

Volunteering with IVHQ was a life changing experience! Jumping out of my comfort zone and getting to immerse myself in Tanzanian culture and lifestyle is something that I will never forget! At the beginning I was a little hesitant experiencing this as a solo traveller but upon arrival I was greeted with great help and suggestions from both IVHQ and the local team. Any worries or concerns were quickly answered. I would highly recommend if you’re thinking of volunteering to do it. You will be glad you did!

Had a good time, enjoyed meeting others and finding out about their travels. A beautiful place. Main problem was that it was the rainy season. Wish there weren't so many mosquitoes. It was my first time abroad travelling on my own. It was a bit frustrating not to have good wifi but I got used to it. Made some very good friends. The turtles were amazing but not that much work to do to help with them. It was good to help with local school children Enjoyed trips to Stone town, spice tour, snorkelling and seeing beautiful fish, the forest and monkeys.

What would you improve about this program?
It would be good to have some communal place for when it rains

IVHQ organization!

I can’t even explain to begin my experience! The best trip of my life! Had the greatest experience ever with IVHQ in Tanzania ! Gor to know the country, the staff was great, the people from Tanzania were lovely, the friends that I met during the volunteering were even more amazing that ended up traveling with them! Tanzania is my home thanks to IVHQ! Didn’t want to go back to my “home country”, would definitely be back! The people are so friendly and nice to you everywhere you go! If you haven’t decided, choose IVHQ

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do it ! Don’t thing about it ! This trip will change your life
