We are Hans and Lui and are looking for Workawayers to help with the operations of our 100 year old coffee farm in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. The farm is located close to Lake Nyasa and Ruaha National Park and is the perfect spot to experience the sights and sounds of Tanzania.
We need help during the busy harvest season, with our daycare for the employees’ children, and with other tasks. We have about 150 employees (pickers, tractor drivers, mechanics, etc.) who could use your help.
We value dedication and a positive mindset. In return, we offer a unique experience of cultural exchange, language learning, and exploration of Tanzania’s beautiful landscape. On long weekends, we often visit the nearby Lake Nyasa and Ruaha National Park.
