Arusha, Tanzania18 contributions8 helpful votes
Yesterday was a special day as I was going to meet my mother in law. She leaves in a small village 16km away from Moshi and the road is incredibly rough, so our car was not going to be able to do it. We requested Zara tours if we could park our car in their premises as we had booked a bajaji to travel to the village. They allowed us without any problem and they were so kind that they didn't charge us anything. In our way back, the car was there, waiting for us perfectly safe. Thanks a million for your empathy!!

We just returned from a great trip to Tanzania that had been arranged for us by Soul of Tanzania. We had a wonderful itinerary that had been worked out for us with travel specialist Manel at Zara tours, actually last year when the trip had to be canceled due to COVID. We had an excellent, knowledgeable, and very personable guide named Azeria. Every day, he served us hot meals on a table with a tablecloth and real plates and silverware that he set up in the bush for us, which I felt was much safer than stopping at local cafes. He was great at spotting wildlife, so we were thrilled to see so many of the animals we had hoped to see and photograph. Azeria also was an excellent and safe driver and handled the bumpy roads as best as could be expected. As for Covid concerns, the staff in the lodges where we stayed wore masks, but most of the local people were not masked. We had a private safari with just the four of us, so we were not around other people that much. In fact, at the lodges, we were sometimes the only guests, and there were never more than a handful of people except at the Ngorongoro lodge. The lodges were ecstatic to have guests, and they rolled out the red carpet for us, greeting us cordially with cool drinks and song, and served excellent food for all meals taken at the lodge even though there were very few guests. We had many concerns about Covid testing requirement both going and returning, but it all worked out with help from Zara tours in getting us registered and taking us to the testing site. We are grateful for a safe and healthy return

Zara Tours took care of everything! They were responsive and helpful from the beginning as we planned our trip and took care of everything we could've needed from beginning to end. We had Filbert and Living as our head guides and Isa and Charles as our other guides. Ask for them! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and so much fun! They ensured that all of us got all the way to the top, even helping one of our group members through some tough altitude sickness. Their expertise at high altitude was amazing. Zara took amazing care of us at every step of the way and gave us the experience of a lifetime on Kilimanjaro.

We have already booked the Kilimanjaro climb via the Rongai route with ZARA Tours in February 2020. Then Corona came. We thought back and forth for a long time whether to do this trip or not. ZARA has always been extremely understanding and tolerant. In the end, we decided to fly to Tanzania. Together with another younger couple from Canada, we (50 + 51 years old) took off with Dixon and his team. It was absolutely fantastic. The camps were empty and there were only four of us. Finally we were happily standing at Uhuru Peak on 01.01.21! The guides were amazing: the perfect mix of friendliness, sovereignty and professionalism. We felt comfortable, safe and in good hands from the very first moment. Our health was checked every day, including the oxygen level in our blood. We hiked, talked, laughed and sang together. Our cook and porters also did an outstanding job. A super friendly, helpful team - you can't praise them enough. They often left us speechless with their service - it was simply incredible. Kudus to them! I actually wanted to write this review immediately after our return, but as is often the case, time passes so quickly. But since not a week goes by without us thinking back happily to this Kilimanjaro climb, I would just like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU once again to the entire ZARA team for an unforettable week on Mt. Kilimanjaro! We can highly recommend ZARA without hesistation.

We fell in love with our whole Zara team! From the time we were greeted at their Springlands hotel, to the time we summited the mountain, there was never a time that we didn't feel fully taken care of by the Zara staff. We were thankful for all of Modest's (hotel front desk) help and logistics. Our Guides (Filburt, Living, Issa, and kind of Charles) were excellent! We got to be friends with all our guides and on summit day Filburt and Living patiently guided one of our team members to what seemed an impossible summit victory, while Issa and Charles lead the rest of the pack keeping us at a steady "pole pole" pace. I am now social media friends with several of the Zara staff and I can say that if you take a tour with them, you are more than just a client... you are family Our whole team made it to the top with great thanks to our Zara team
