Activities

Soapbox Trips is delighted to offer the opportunity to travel to a part of Tanzania that few tourists see and do some practical building and maintenance work which will benefit the local community.

Situated some 4000 feet up in the picturesque Livingstone Mountains in south west Tanzania, near Lake Malawi, is a sparsely populated area of mainly subsistence farmers living in small villages. The local people have identified the need for a school in their village for the smallest children to attend instead of walking for 4km to the nearest school. They have invited us to experience their way of life and enjoy their friendship and hospitality and to be involved in building the first classroom for this new school.

There will also be plenty of time for playing with the children, community involvement, visits and sightseeing.

 

We hope there will also be the opportunity to visit a game park.

Project Partner

Our hosts are the community of Ilininda village in Ludewa and particularly Pastor Johnson.

Accommodation will be a small guest house in the village and food will be cooked for the team by the local people.
