  1. Are you looking for adventure in your travels? Are you interested in sustainable travel options that not only protect the environment but help it grow? Then the Ngerengere River Eco Camp is the place for you. Bungalows, baboons, international travelers, gardening, Tanzanian food, and more!

    Located in a small Tanzanian village at the bank of the Ngerengere River, the Eco Camp is the destination for travelers young and old hoping to discover authentic African living and to engage in hands-on community-centered activities that aide in the daily lives of the local people. With a focus on environmentally-friendly practices, the Eco Camp is a great place for visitors to unplug from their busy lives and connect to something larger through immersion in the local ecology and spearheading positive sustainable habits in developing countries. Travelers stay in bungalows which include mosquito nets, bottled water and a private bathroom. Three Tanzanian meals a day are included. The camp offers visitors a chance to experience a variety of activities such as gardening, tree planting, water quality projects, educational aide at the local school, nature walks full of baboons, chameleons and bush babies, Mukumi game park, and cultural exchanges with local villagers and tribal Maasai Mara

    The Eco Camp is located about 150 km from Dar es Salaam, the largest Tanzanian city and about 45 km from Morogoro. It is situated in the small village of Lukwambe surrounded by the Tanzanian bush for a truly African experience

    As the camp is located in a more remote area, interested visitors should contact it’s founder Remmy by phone or email address provided for help. To reach the camp visitors typically arrive in two ways: An Eco Camp staff member will pick you up in Dar es Salaam where you will both take either a private car or ride the public transport bus, depending on your preference. All transportation details can be worked out through Remmy and are flexible depending on your situation. While arrival may seem a bit unorthodox, it showcases the uniqueness of this experience compared to other more touristy and cliche travel experiences!

    As mentioned previously all bookings and details should be discussed with Remmy as the Eco Camp is very flexible concerning the duration of your stay although there is a minimum requirement of 4 days. Well-versed in English and a local to the area, Remmy has over 10 years of experience in the hospitality and community development arena and can help answer any questions regarding transportation, timing, availability, and camp atmosphere.
    Thank you and welcome.

    Hey! Just wanted to say I really enjoyed reading your blog on Asheville farm to table food. I live about 50 miles east of Asheville, I used to date a girl who lived IN Asheville, and my ex girlfriend lived about halfway between my home and Asheville, so Asheville is a place I’m very familiar with, and totally in love with. Though I don;t fit the “type” as I am a conservative eastern NC establishment type by nature (lol) I’m also an Eagle scout, I earned every nature based merit badge available, my favorite being Environmental science and soil & wildlife conservation. I deeply respect the environment and the local economy, and believe strongly in clean air and clean water, as well as utilizing our resources wisely. I grew up on a 32 acre piece of property, mostly woods, so I grew up as sort of a woodsman. We also grew our own food much of the time, completely organic. My dad taught me a lot about nature and gardening and forestry, as did my scoutmaster.

    Anyways, just thought I would share. I love local farm to table food, I love a healthy environment, and as a son of several of North Carolina’s first families, who is completely devoted to his state, it brings me so much joy to see others enjoying what out great state has to offer 🙂

  5. Hi Linda

    I like the way you travel the world and that’s why I would like to invite you to my unique eco farm in India (Rishikesh). You can check my web site: and let me know if you are interested. It’s a place to explore the real Indian life!

  6. Hello,

    I work for the International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) supporting responsible one-by-one tuna fisheries around the world. Catching tuna one at a time has a number of environmental and social benefits. IPNLF recently launched a Responsible Tourism Initiative in the Maldives engaging with the tourism and fishing sectors to escalate awareness of and demand for local sustainable seafood, thereby increasing the returns to local fishing communities.

    Would the idea of choosing the right tuna be an interesting blog article for you to share?
