“I had the most amazing trip. The team were great, everyone was very helpful. My thanks to the 2nd guide Meke, without his encouragement and patience I would not have summitted, our cook Musa cooked the best meals & I've never tasted anything like his soups, in all the treks I have done with this tour company.”

“The staff at Zara are wonderful, very friendly and welcoming. The guides that Zara use are professional and speak excellent English. They choose their "team", as I found it interesting to learn that the porters are independent and just contracted work. It's up to the guides to chose who they can rely on. The porters work so hard and are the salt of the earth. I was so impressed. I have met many very happy people who have climbed multiple times and always use Zara. You become part of the famly here. You're never forgotten and you are well looked after. I highly recommend Zara Tours. They get an A++”

“Best Safari experts: Once we got to the hotel, the Safari itinerary provided by the tour company, our safari guide Laiser Maasai was very knowledgeable and did a superb job of keeping us all interested, amused and happy. We saw some incredible wildlife on our trip; the hotels were mostly very comfortable even though at times we were in the middle of the jungle. A thoroughly enjoyable experience for my family and I would highly recommend it. Social responsible: It is good to know that the company has helping also the charity in Moshi, where we visited, a disadvantage children home of more than 50 kids, I also promise to help their NGO AFRICA NEIGHBORHOOD foundation as they are pledge to service the community. I would highly recommend this trip. Each day was fantastic and I intend to return to Tanzania to explore further national parks. Our time in Tanzania was amazing; the tour was very ably and professionally led by Brian. What I particularly liked was that at each location I was free to do as I pleased, take part in some of the more strenuous activities or wander at my own pace. Inevitably I chose the latter. Our first hotel, in Arusha was excellent the company books it for us and I was soo relaxing. Brian's suggestion of picnic lunches in lovely places was particularly inspired as were our evening debriefing sessions from well informed guides and companys manager, with a couple of drinks before dinner. Our visit to their charity projects they are working with now was life changing experience, we loved this company as their responsible to environment and communities, and they bring back what they get to them. All in all I will travelling with this company again and again. GREAT! GREAT LOCAL OWNED SAFARI COMPANY.”
