Camps International Blog - tanzania


Last year December 2014 we're lucky to host a group of family in one of our Tanzania Camps.The group had prepared to spend the festive season giving back to the community through our community project work.They all had a great experience and loved every single bit of their stay.Below is a testimonial story; long but worthy reading it ........


We,ve just had a fantastic week in Tanzania with the American Community School Abu Dhabi. The team was great and everyone was dedicated to give back to the community.This is what they had to say.....

We have had several community service trips through our ACS school Abu Dhabi, but this year our service trip to Tanzania with Camps International have been a truly life changing for all of us. The things we did and the experiences we had were eye-opening.


The Sports Development Expedition 2014 (SDX) in Tanzania was incredible one and everyone from the team enjoyed all aspect of the trip. Just before saying bye, they had something to share.....

Our trip has been incredible. A highlight of the week was handing over a whole team’s football kit and equipment to Bala, the village’s youth team coach.

Well, the simple answer is that we can’t. Sooo …. This is a mammoth blog and we expect you to read from start to finish as what has been achieved in such a short space of time is astounding!

Jambo from Tanzania SDX 2014

Our SDX team have been training and coaching sports in two of the local Schools in Tanzania.Just within two weeks alot has been achieved and this is what they had to share....

The trip can be summarized by every day’s journey to school through the villages, where everyone is happy to see us as they appreciate everything we can give them, even if it just a hand to hold.

Gapping it right in Tanzania

Work hard and play hard. We love our Gap in Tanzania Program!


The first night we spent in a hotel near Kilimanjaro airport. We all met up the next day and started our long drive down to Tanga. The views on the journey were amazing but a good few hours were spent sleeping. We got to camp bleary eyed 8 hours later and were warmly welcomed by Anderson and the SDX group. Early nights all round!
