Lasse Kröger in Tanzania

Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world, therefore experiencing a culture shock will not come as a surprise. However once I got used to the culture I couldn’t have enjoyed my stay more. I volunteered for three months in an orphanage in Arusha and met some incredible people during this time. The people in Tanzania are very friendly and interested in you, therefore it was no problem for me to make friends there. All in all it was a life changing experience for me.

There were probably two things I enjoyed most during my stay in Africa. The first one was working with the children in the orphanage. I almost immediately connected with a lot of kids and had a great time teaching, playing and learning with them. The second one was exploring the amazing country of Tanzania. Whether it is the Serengeti national park, the Ngorongoro crater, Lake Victoria, Zanzibar or Mount Kilimanjaro the next amazing place is in Tanzania always just around the corner.
