Zara Tours Continues Efforts Towards Environmentally Conscious Practices

TANZANIA, AFRICA–Zara Tours, one of the top tour operators in Tanzania and East Africa, is furthering its environmentally conscious mission statement with help from travelers from all around the world. Visitors can participate in the biannual Clean Up Mount Kilimanjaro trek and tour the breathtaking Serengeti National Park, all while contributing to a cleaner, healthier planet.

3This November, adventurers from every continent will come to Tanzania to help Clean Up Mount Kilimanjaro while climbing one of the tallest mountains in the world. Trekkers will get to enjoy the majesty of the mountain for a discount off the usual guided trek price, in exchange for their help collecting trash from the trails and helping keep the mountain clear for future climbers.

1For those who want to help–but don’t want to hike–Zara Tours extends an invitation to tour the incredible Serengeti National Park. The 12,000 square miles of the Serengeti is home to the largest animal migrations and is a protected ecosystem for countless species. Through the Kili Cleaning Package offered via Zara Tours, you can volunteer and help to make Kilimanjaro a cleaner, more beautiful place! Those who join us for this option can get a 15 percent discount from the regular rate, plus 20 percent of your money paid will go to the ZARA Charity, supporting charitable projects in Tanzania!

IMG-20170521-WA0023-2Awarded sustainable business awards and recognition for efforts in promoting environmentally conscious tourism, Zara Tours is excited to invite passionate adventurers to make a difference on their next trip to Tanzania.

Tanzania Named Top African Safari Destination by Global Customer Analysis

1TANZANIA, AFRICA–An analysis of 2,500 reviews by both tourists and expert travelers declared Tanzania the best place to experience an African safari. This is the second time visitors have chosen Tanzania for this top position, as it also was the highest rated country in a survey back in 2013.

ZARA1, SAFARIThird-party booking site SafariBookings.com conducted both reports, finding that customers from around the world were most enthusiastic about safaris in Tanzania. And with the range of ages and variety of homelands of the adventurers who visit the country with Zara Tours, such a consensus is even more compelling.

Combination packages are popular among fierce adventurers who want to climb a mountain and go on safari; lay on beaches and shop in Addis Ababa. The opportunity to take multiple vacations and make the most of time away is real here in Tanzania.

Sere BFThe same study by SafariBookings.com also discovered that Tanzania’s incredible wild spaces were an ideal spot for viewing wildlife, making it the best country to visit for the purpose of seeing Africa’s one-of-a-kind animals, as well.

The Mountain Man of Yardley is at it again!

werner berger

At 80, Werner Berger is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, for the 7th time. Why? He says, “To celebrate my birthday at the top on July 16, and, of more importance, to inspire individuals of all ages to live their lives with greater Passion, Purpose, Health, and Fulfillment.” He then adds, “This is the launch of ‘Quest736, The Game is not Over (seven summits, seven continents in thirty-six (36) months).’”

We immediately wanted to ask, “What is that all about,” yet checked in with him, in anticipation of your question, “Who the heck is this guy?”.

Well, he is one of your neighbors; a Part-Time Bucks County resident and a Guinness World Records holder as the oldest person on earth to have climbed the seven summits; the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest. We asked him, “Why the heck would you be climbing at your age and planning to re-climbing the seven?” His casual response, “Because I love doing it and to inspire others to live their lives “out loud.””

What we found fascinating, at age 57, he dreamt up a challenge for himself. His Bucket List included hiking to Mr. Everest Base Camp, hiking to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and climbing the Matterhorn. Never did he even think any of this would come to pass.

We have all heard the phrase, “Careful what you wish for.” Well, in Berger’s case he got what he wished for and more. “Did you ever think you’d one day be standing on the top of Mt. Everest.” His instant reply, “No never.” He then followed up with, “At least, not until I had climbed a few of the higher continental points. Only then did the 7-Summits jumped to mind. “

18422144_10209651462779734_6998478247712577972_o“How old were you when that happened?” He calmly answered, “65.” “And, how old were you when you climbed Mt. Everest?” 69. And now, 10 years he is stepping out to re-climb the seven summits, with Kilimanjaro as the first and all within the next thirty-six (36) months

“What does living your life out loud mean to you?” His response includes re-awakening your adventurous spirit, overcoming the “I can’t-do this or that syndrome,” reconnecting with yourself in a meaningful manner – by finding that zest for life we all had as unencumbered children and becoming the leader we were all meant to be – re-bonding with nature and re-discovering the true meaning of “awe?”

He leaves on July 6 for Africa and will be standing on top of the African continent on the morning of his 80th birthday.

Now’s the Time to Schedule Your Summer or Autumn Trek Up Mount Kilimanjaro

img-20160913-wa0034

TANZANIA, AFRICA–From beginning climbers to skilled adventurers, Mount Kilimanjaro is an awe-inspiring peak to summit in any season for those who love beauty and challenge. The most recommended months to begin on that great adventure are widely thought to be July through October, making now the perfect time to book this year’s trek.

During these months, temperatures, precipitation, and clarity make for an all-around ideal climb, with many groups to join if you’re on your own. Choose from one of seven different routes, and embark on a trek for anywhere from five to nine days. The shorter the trip, the more arduous the journey may be, so select a speed of travel that fits your physical fitness, one that is the perfect blend of comfort and challenge for you. Join a group of 11 or more people, or organize a private climb for a range of different experiences.

kilimanjaro-1

The 7-Day Rongai Route is perhaps one of the most balanced treks, presenting a challenge while still providing some level of comfort. Take a more measured approach on a 9-day trek up the  Kilimanjaro Londorossi Route  for a proud beginner’s accomplishment.

Previous climbers have come at every stage of physical preparedness, often running and hiking more frequently to get ready for the mountain. Deciding what to pack  may be the hardest, as you must account for a variety of basic needs and clothing requirements, while ensuring that your bag weighs no more than 15 kg (35 lbs.) for the porter who accompanies each climber up the mountainside. But since meals are provided, designed to fit your nutritional needs throughout the exertion of the climb, a few snacks should be the only items of food you need worry about.
