Zara Tours Offers Education, Opportunity, and Give-Back to Tourists and Community

TANZANIA, AFRICA – June in Africa kicks off the top of the season for wildlife viewing and a pleasantly tropical climate in drier weather, resulting in less mosquito activity. The coastal areas will be hotter and more humid than those further inland, and the mountain areas will drop in temperature significantly overnight, as altitude increases. This weather, that lasts until October, makes trekking the perfect African holiday activity.

Whether hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru, or the Ngorongoro Highlands, Zara Tours’ focus is on education, safety, and sustainability. Our Kili-clean program runs twice a year and our porters, along with others in the Mount Kilimanjaro Porter Society (MKPS), trek and clean to keep the mountain beautiful for generations to come. Trekkers who wish to join in this environmental project can do so, and earn a discounted rate on the standard trek fees.

The 5- to 9-days trekking routes are all lead by skilled guides and porters who place safety first, which starts with proper hydration and altitude acclimation. From solar-powered sleeping huts on the easiest hike to slow and steady treks to the summit, Zara’s diverse offerings are given to private climbers or groups and include prepared meals.

ZARA TOURS 1A full circle, we educate porters, who educate visitors. These visitors allow us to reinvest in our communities to provide further education, skills, and the ability to earn income and support their families. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that supports and equips everyone to have a better life.

Meru, gorilla watching in Uganda, and more.
