Det skal I lave

We meet at the Hobby Fast Food – our non-profit café. On the first part of the tour we pass churches and mosques along Old Moshi road. You hear about our early history with influence from the Arabs and colonist,.We turn South and pass Usa’s drainage system and rice fields. These were established in the 1970’s as a cooperation between Nyerere (our first president) and China. After a stop under a 100 years old Mango tree, we continue and pass an Ethiopian settlement, the result of the friendship between Haille Selaisse and Nyerere – the first President of independent Tanzania. We continue through small villages until we reach the old railway. Then we ride to the old railway station with the beautiful view of the river, have a little break under a Jacaranda tree. Here we talk about the German and British, and how the colonial times have affected us. The rest of the way a drive through along avocado farms and coffee trees. We make a stop at our plot, where we grow our own organic vegetables for café. We continue and discuss foreigners in Tanzania. After the trip we have a soda at Cafe Hobby Fast Food, driven by volunteers from URYDO. Then you can buy bites or order delicious local food and eat at our roof top terrace with views over the life in Usa River – even Kilimanjaro, if you’re lucky. If you want, you can book lunch in advance.

Om organisationen: Usa River Youth and development organisation- URYDO.



In URYDO we are more than 350 young members from the village that work to strengthen our civil society. Through the URYDO we do sports and hobbys and gain skills to help us to take more responsibility for our own lives. In URYDO we are focused on sustainability and in order to become more independent of donors we have started our own volunteer driven nonprofit companies - cafe, tours and catering.

Had the most amazing bike ride with the youth of the village. Usa River is beautiful and has a very interesting history. However, what impressed me the most is that these young people, that come from poor backgrounds work as volunteers for their youth and sportsclub

This is a very unique experience where you get to see parts of authentic Tanzania in a relaxed manner. Who would know that so much interesting history and nature is right there in front of you? It was quite touching to have the voluntary youth from the village showing us around and help us to ‘open our eyes’. Would recommend it to everyone
