Pick Up and Drop Off
We provide airport transfer services from and to Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha Airport. If the flights are cheaper and you choose to arrive into Dar es salaam or Nairobi, arrangements can be made for you. If you arrive in Dar es Salaam, your best option will be staying a night at one of our host families. The advantage of this is that you will be meet and greeted from arrival point and taken directly to our hostel. Email us your planned pick up or destination and a taxi/minibus will be made available to you.
Bed and Breakfast
In addition to arranging free volunteering experiences in Tanzania, we can also provide bed and breakfast for travelers. We have rooms dedicated for business and leisure travelers, families, groups and students. We prepare tasteful meals, some Tanzanian classic dishes for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. One of the objectives of Maskani Pride is to provide locals woman and youth with employment opportunity and thus improving the wellbeing of the families in the area. We also support the local economy by purchasing all fresh fruits and vegetables directly in the area. Your visit and stay with us, helps meet this objective. Our bed and breakfast services includes;
• Lunch and dinner on request
• Car parking on site
• Linen and towels provided
• Luggage storage
• Laundry services available
• Common room with TV/DVD
• Hot water
• Airport transfers on request
• Tourist information
Our focuses are all about people; about active engagement and genuine connection between travellers and locals; about understanding along with adventure. At Maskani Pride, we are proud that our volunteers and visitors have the opportunity to live with a local Tanzanian family and truly be integrated with their local community during their entire stay. If you choose to stay with a host family, you will be treated as a member of the family, eat your meals together and experience a level of cultural and linguistic immersion that goes far beyond the limits of tourism. Participating in an international homestay is one of the best ways to experience cultural immersion in Tanzania as you learn about another language (Swahili), cultural norms and local traditions. MP places volunteers with hosts who enjoy learning about other cultures and appreciate the unique opportunity that hosting an international volunteer/traveller gives to their family. All of our Host families have been carefully chosen by Maskani Pride. As part of the homestay program, volunteers eat their meals with their homestay families. They'll see first-hand how traditional Tanzanian meals are prepared and cooked, and get a chance to try some Tanzanian classics. Whether you are sharing a plate of ugali (corn meal) and dagaa(small fishes) with your Tanzanian family, your homestay experience with MP hosts will provide memories and friendships lasting a lifetime.
We focus mainly on homestays, but for those who are not interested in staying with a local family, hostel accomodations are also available. Both our Hostels in Moshi and Arusha are located in secure areas and only a few minutes from the City Centres. We offer accommodation to short and long term volunteers and also to travellers who visit these two places either for safari, mountain climbing or even a relaxing vacation. We have 1, 2, and 4 mixed bedrooms where you can get to meet like-minded people and share the Tanzania experience. Both our hostels are fully furnished, with laundry services available, hot water, parking area, security and a garden. Breakfast and dinner are provided at the hostel. Vegetarians and other dietary requirements are catered for. It is also our tradition that volunteers pick one of the weekends to cook and prepare dinner for everybody. In this way, our staff, travellers and volunteers can get to taste foreign dishes.
Prices for Maskani Pride are the same whether you choose to stay with a host family or stay at our hostel. We have 1, 2 and 4 mixed bedrooms at our hostel which have both single and shared bathrooms, hot showers and European toilets.
