For those that are staying one month or less this amount will be deducted from their only one reciept to be payed on arrival. Once we receive the deposit and the exact dates of your trip we will send you the outstanding balance you will have to pay on arrival, so you have exact budget prevision before you come.

We also want to inform you, as some of you already know, the Tanzanian Government "created" a volunteer visa at the end of last summer. Together with other NGO's and local companies we are fighting to try and stop this practice which we completely disagree with, due to the fact it attempts against the meaning of volunteering, but until there is any change we have to inform you this visa has to be managed at immigration offices on your arrival. The cost of this visa is 500 dollars per person. Due to this issue we have reduced our rates at Karibu Hostel for those volunteers staying with us for more than a month and a half to help contribute keeping budgets affordable and supporting the spirit of volunteering.
