Get to know some ZARA staff

Mr. Shabani at Springlands Hotel Moshi

Hello, I’m Mr. Shabani,

I’m the restaurant supervisor of ZARA’s Springlands Hotel in Moshi. I’m a Tanzanian from Moshi and this is my fifth year with ZARA. Everyone in Moshi is happy to work with ZARA, it is a preferred employer in the country.

In my department there are 10 waiters and 2 barmen. Typically, we cater food for around 100 people every day, but at peak times we sometimes have up to 200 guests. I make sure our guests have good meals, good service and they are perfectly happy – every day. I welcome them in Springlands to enjoy our meals and services. Karibu sana (A big welcome) to Springlands!

Did you know? ZARA ecofarming

Next to ZARA’s Highview Hotel, between the town of Karatu, just at the border to the Southern Ngorongoro forest, ZARA has 28 acres of farmland where most of the fruits and vegetables are grown that you as a ZARA traveller get served at the hotel, at a bush lunch or as part of your delicious safari lunch box.

ZARA follows the philosophy of organic farming. We don’t use synthetic pesticides – because the fruits and vegetables taste better and it protects the environment.

Karibu Tanzania

ZARA stand at Karibu show 2008 Arusha

The annual Karibu travel and tourism trade show in Arusha is the leading travel trade event in East Africa. Originally, the idea was to promote Tanzania, but during the last years, the show has considerably grown from a local travel event to a serious industry meeting, attracting more than 200 exhibitors from many East African and overseas countries in June 2008.

It is clear that ZARA as a leading Tanzanian safari and Kilimanjaro trekking operator cannot miss the opportunity to present their innovative socially and environmentally sustainable travel products on this show. The picture above shows this year’s ZARA stand with a demonstration of our brand new Kilimanjaro climbing camping equipment.

Other trade shows ZARA usually participates include World Travel Market in London (each November), ITB in Berlin (in March), FITUR in Madrid (February),  International Tourism and Travel Show Montreal (October) and many others. If you want to have a chat with a ZARA representative in your country – contact us ( and ask us which shows we are going to attend this year. We are looking forward to meeting you there!
