Experiencing ZARA tours was great. We had the chance to have the best guide in our eyes (Majidi) and his incredible team (Issa, Rajabu and so many others...). Beyond an extraordinary and very beautiful climb, we discovered the human aspect behind it and that marked us more than the rest. We will never forget the smiles of everyone, the conversations during the short breaks, the songs of our guides to encourage us to climb... everything was perfect and our ascent was successful until Uhuru Peak. Unforgettable moments. Thank you

Me and my wife did a 6 day safari with Zara tours as a part of group of 6 and it was Excellent! The best part was our driver-guide Zamo who was first of all a amazing driver surviving the dusty roads and finding all the animals there was to find. Zamo was also really pleasent company and great story teller when it comes to animals, safaris, Tanzania overal etc.

This was my third time with Zara Tours coming to climb Kilimanjaro with a group (15 this time) and once again, all expectations were met by the guides, porters and staff at Zara. This started from the top with the owner Zainab Ansell who welcomed each member of our group and throughout the 7-day Machame climb and the 4-day Safari checked with us continuously to see that everything was fine. The help provided by all was so appreciated as everyone in the group was going to altitude for the first time (except one). The guides (Lead Guide Mndeme Ramadhan) were amazing as were the drivers/guides on the safari. The hotel staff made sure everyone was happy and provided for throughout the expedition. Zara even arranged a surprise birthday party for one of our members at the Serengeti Wild Camp. I will continue to highly recommend Zara Tours for your climbing/safari needs if a trip to Tanzania is in your future. Thank you Zara for your guidance, your care and providing the group with a memorable once-in-a-lifetime experience!

On the first day of safari we saw more animals than we were expecting to see on the entire trip! We highlighted 27 animals in our Princeton Pocket Guide and that did NOT include the birds. We visited 4 national parks and a Maasai Village. We endured many hours each day of "African Massages" in the Landcruisers. The breakfasts and dinners were fantastic. It was fun to toss gifts to the children we drove past.

Once in a life time experience, we had the best guide we could ask for. We’ve seen the big five, the crater and also the lake. Our guide Peter was an endless source of knowledge and endless patience. He made sure we’ve experienced and seen the best of Tanzania.
Thank you for everything.

I hiked solo with Zara Tours in September, 2022 and had fantastic experience. Juma, my guide was great as was the rest of the team. Everything was put in place to make sure I made it to the summit. I stayed at the Springlands Hotel in Moshi the night prior to and after the climb. I enjoyed this place as well as meeting people that had either just finished their climb or were just heading out. I also had the pleasure of meeting Zainab Ansell who founded Zara Tours in 1986. She is a very impressive and friendly person.
