Our holiday to Tanzania in august 2022 has been an experience of a lifetime. We travelled with a group of 10 from the Netherlands. Upon arrival at this fascinating destination we were welcomed by our tour guides from the Zara tours group. We were brought to several different locations, some more luxurious than others. Hotels with swimming pool, lodges and tents with animals outside our doors all run by highly accomodating friendly staff. We woke early to breakfast and set out every day with our 2 guides in landcruisers crossing around 1200 km of Tanzania. Our two guides Zamu and Hamza went out of theire way to show the national parks Tarangiri, Serengetti and Ngorongoro at its best, full of wild life. The parks where bursting with so many species of animals. Our guides excelled in theire driving skills over this rough terrain, sometimes up to 10 hours a day. The fact they are their for you 24/7 feels so special, we are very gratefull. Zamu and Hamza are both so full of knowledge and amazing at spotting rare species with there eagle eyes. Both our guides deserve a 5 star rating as they became our friends on this amazing trip of a lifetime. We will never forget you both. Thankyou again from family Bentinck and Van Der Laan.

The team from Zara tours guiding and supporten us on the Lemosho route on Kilimanjaro July 27th - August 3rd was outstanding. We was taken good care of at all times, on the treck, in the camps and when needing assistance. All did their outmost to make our trip as good as possible for us to succeed to the top of Africa. My warmest reccomendations for them.

All well organised, Zara Tour is not improvising anything. Hotels might require to be renovated… sometime not at the level expected from the price. We were in a private car for two, with guides Jospeh (driving) and Nickson (speaking French). They made this Safari fantastic, providing best view to the animals as well as the landscape. They are knowlegeable on so many details that supported us to learn and understand more than with books.

Our guide, Mzui, and his crew of nine, made our Machame Route Kilimanjaro Climb a memory to last a lifetime. Professional, skilled, and kind, he and his team ensured that we had a successful journey. You are in good hands with these intelligent men. They know the mountain. Highly recommended.

We booked via UK company AfricaSafari but it was Zara Tours that looked after us from arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport for the duration of trip. Stayed at Springlands Hotel in Moshi night before leaving for our 8 day(7 night) expedition doing the Lemosho Route. Excellent route to maximise acclimatisation and chance of successful summit. You go through jungle then savannah then volcanic area and eventually summit and the glaciers. Cannot speak highly enough of our guides Nteze and his second in command Twenye. They were awesome… Ntezes’s English is superb. They looked after us brilliantly, made sure we enjoyed every second of our adventure keeping us safe and healthy and loving the experience. It was my 50th during the trip and Twenye carried an amazing cake all the way up the mountain to celebrate!! All the porters were so kind and obliging. Tents were good, advise paying for portaloo. Food incredible. I’ve done lots of different holidays over the years and can honestly say this was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Sunmitting Kilimanjaro was emotional beyond belief. Cannot rate Zara and Nteze highly enough. Shout out to staff at Springlands too … they were fab as well. Bring a swimsuit to enjoy a dip in the pool on your return to hotel after 8 days on mountain where you can chill with a beer or a gin!
