LODGING IN DAR ES SALAAM
Most volunteers elect to stay at the Kalenga House, a large house owned and operated by MUHAS 3-5 minutes’ walk to the MUHAS compound. The Kalenga House is a two-story building with eight rooms (two with a shower and toilet within the room, the rest with shared facilities on both floors). It is located within a walled compound with a security guard. The house contains a dining room, parlor, kitchen (with a stove, refrigerator/freezer and full set of utensils, cookware, and dishes) and a washing machine. There is a clothesline in the back of the house. An attendant lives in an adjacent small house within the compound. The cost of lodging is $70.00/night for one person and $75.00/night for a couple.

There are hotels in Dar es Salaam located further from the hospital. The traffic in Dar es Salaam however is quite challenging and lodging within walking distance of the hospital is a distinct advantage.
