BaseCamp Tanzania in Arusha is set up with a number of dormitory style rooms and it has a large covered balcony on the main floor with a spectacular view! There is also a large common room on the lower level with a small resource center containing books, magazines, movies, games and other African publications. The private location provides the ideal setting to catch up on email, review some Swahili, or just enjoy a quiet afternoon. Wireless internet access is available throughout the house, making it easy to stay in touch with friends and family back home.
BaseCamp Arusha has a full time kitchen that can provide three meals per day. The Hostel menu consists of local dishes, and can be modified to make accommodations for any allergy or food restrictions (with advance notice). In addition to the delicious meals prepared and eaten at BaseCamp, you can also arrange to have a packed lunch provided, to take with you on that days excursion.
The meal plan can be purchased in any combination, from a single meal to a complete meal plan. You can make your meal plan arrangements in advance at the time you book your accommodation, or you can plan to wait until your arrival to join the meal plan. The meal plan is posted weekly so you always know what is for breakfast lunch and dinner. If you are staying at the BaseCamp hostel and you did not select a meal plan, you can always choose to join in on any meal, provided you give the kitchen enough notice (four to six hours is requested).
BaseCamp hostel is the center of an international volunteer abroad program where guest can find a cultural atmosphere and can learn the local language for traveling around the country. Also, our guest can receive assistance with airport transfers, orientation on the arrival and tour packages.
With our mix of guests, local friends and staff, BaseCamp Tanzania has an atmosphere that is more like a homestay than a hostel. Guests are always welcome to join any of the activities or events hosted by BaseCamp, and we pride ourselves on our community based environment that is open and friendly.
