Local Villages and Homestays


Homestays are an ideal and unique way to experience rural Tanzanian life. We arrange for you to stay with a local family so you can at see at first hand a little glimpse of how the people in Mbeya region live their everyday lives.

DaladalaWe are currently reviewing the homestay opportunities we offer. Historically our homestays have been based around the Sisi Kwa Sisi farm which is currently not being worked. (We are hoping that the farm will be operating again in the next few months).
