The experience at Abdul’s homestay has been wonderful. I can’t wait to go back!!
Abdul, his family and his friends have been so so welcoming and sweet. Talking with them and get to know better their culture was one of the thing I loved the most. I had the possibility to really live the local life - I feel in love with Tanzania! Also, the kids at school are so eager to learn and the teacher is such a lovely person.

I stayed at Abdul’s homestay and I had an amazing time there. Abdul is a lovely and kind person, is always available and patient.
Every morning we went to the local school and we had the possibility to enjoy our time with the kids teaching English and mathematics.
Abdul made us know the local culture meeting local people. During the weekends we did some trips in Zanzibar and in a natural park where we had the possibility to get in touch with the nature and the animals. I recommend this experience to everyone, is the perfect occasion to learn and discover a new culture with amazing people.

My experience at Abdul’s house was incredible. I was there for 4 weeks and I had the opportunity to live in a local family by completely immersing myself in their culture. I felt at home from the beginning. Abdul is an onest, caring and good people in general, I found in him a true friend and his family became mine. They were really friendly and loving.
The work in the school was amazing, children are very nice and they have so much love to give.
The village is a safe place and the local people are friendly.
I really recommend it to everyone. I know for sure I will definitely be back 🇹🇿❣️
