We had a truely amazing time at Kuzuri Tanzania. James is a great host and his family helps you with everything you need and make you feel part of them. They are also super guides to experience local culture and for trips on the weekend and to the city.

Although we came during school holidays there were plenty of things to do at the family farm and we spent a lot of time with the kids in the neighbourhood and also at the orphanage. The kids are really smart and we hope that future volunteers can teach them valuable things for their future while learning a lot themselves:)

Our experience with kissiri Family couldnt be better, we dont have words to describe what We have been feeling this time, they make us feel that we are another member of the family, they share with us his culture, values and essence of tanzania. We have visited a lot of beautiful places, waterfalls, hotsprings...They were all time taking care of us, giving us all that we need to be comfortable and happy, they teach us swahili, showed us the city and give us all their love. The kids are so Lovely. We worked at the library, at the farm, and we plant and collect vegetables. We love this place.

James and his family are the most welcoming and nice hosts I have ever seen. I felt at home since the first day I met them. I could learn so much about Tanzanian culture and their daily duties. My plan, first of all, was to help the school with English and sports activities. But since it was at the end of the school year, I could only help them for a couple of weeks. The other two weeks I was able to work on the family farm, which had helped me to learn more about it and also to see the family routine. It was an amazing experience that I recommend for everyone.

It was an amazing experience! The whole family is superb. It is possible to help on the farm, in the construction of the library or to give lessons to students. An adventure rich in emotions, with the possibility of hiking, safaris and much more. The food is great and local, James is attentive and always ready to help, as well as the whole family.
