A very good tour operator based in Moshi We had a really nice 'Materuni Waterfalls & Coffee Plantation' tour with ZAFS from Moshi. Good organization, good price and a friendly and well English-speaking tour guide. We can really recommend ZAF.

Glad we chose ZAFS ZAFS Tours exceeded all expectations during our Mt. Kilimanjaro expedition, thanks to their outstanding team of guides—Amani, Faruq, Mussa, and Majumba. The service was truly exceptional from start to finish. The guides demonstrated unparalleled care throughout the journey. Their attention to our well-being, health, and safety was remarkable. They went above and beyond, ensuring we were acclimatizing properly, providing timely reminders for hydration, and keeping a close eye on our overall comfort. A special mention goes to Amani, Faruq, Mussa, and Majumba for their genuine concern and support during challenging moments. The food provided on the mountain was both nourishing and delicious, surpassing typical trekking expectations. The guides ensured dietary preferences and restrictions were considered, making the dining experience on Kilimanjaro an unexpected highlight. It felt like a home-cooked meal at high altitudes. One notable instance of their exceptional service was when, on summit night, we realized we had forgotten our windbreakers. The guides swiftly arranged replacements on the spot, displaying not only their preparedness but also their dedication to ensuring our comfort and safety during the most crucial part of the trek. The camaraderie and fun shared with the guides made the journey memorable. They brought a lively spirit to the expedition, creating an atmosphere that turned strangers into a close-knit group. Their professionalism was evident in every aspect of the trek, fostering an environment that balanced adventure with safety. Huzeifa, the owner of ZAFS Tours, played a pivotal role in orchestrating this seamless experience. His attention to detail, commitment to customer satisfaction, and hands-on approach to managing the operation were evident throughout. Accommodations both before and after the trek were comfortable and well-organized, adding a touch of luxury to bookend the rugged adventure. By the end of the expedition, the group, including the guides and Huzeifa, felt like one big family. The bonds formed during the trek were a testament to the warmth and hospitality of ZAFS Tours. The combination of professionalism, personalized care, and a genuine passion for their work made this Mt. Kilimanjaro experience truly exceptional. ZAFS Tours has set the bar high for adventure tourism, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience.

MAGNIFICENT KILLIMANJARO with ZAFS We had an incredible 7 day Lemosho trip for a group of 6 of us. Zafs took care of everything & supported us in every way before, after & in the trip. There were moments when things were hard-they had prepared us for these times. They were aware of our limitations and our needs & were next to us when we needed them. I couldn’t have got to the top without our guides John, Gabriel & Janeth. And the porters & chef-what can I say-they carry all that gear on their backs & always smiling. They are real heros. The food they carry & prepare was excellent. The toilet tent was never a ‘no go’ zone! They chatted with us & taught me so much about Tanzania that I didn’t know previously. I wish I could have stayed longer to explore more of this beautiful country. I will definitely come back to see more. I would highly recommend Zafs. 🙏🏽 Asante
UNFORGETTABLE LEMOSHO ROUTE: 8 DAYS I CAN WITH THE UTMOST JOYOUS HEART SAY THAT THIS WAS THE BEST TRIP OF MY LIFE SO FAR WITH ZAFS TOURS. Teary and emotional as i type this, I Went on the trip solo and left with 17 new friends and met the most amazing team of guides and management. From start to finish, the service was outstanding, ensuring every aspect of the journey was seamless. The guides were knowledgeable and attentive, making me feel safe and supported throughout the trek. They made sure I summit. The food provided was not only delicious but also exceeded my expectations for mountain cuisine. OH AND THEY EVEN BAKED FRESH CAKE ON THE MOUNTAIN FOR A BIRTHDAY!! Most importantly, the memories created during this adventure are ones I will cherish forever. Thank you, ZAFS TOURS, for an unforgettable experience <3 I RELIVE and revisit memories of this trip & moments from it everyday.
Excellent service! I heard about Zafs tour via a Youtube vlogger and they were as good as advertised: their drivers and guides were professional, kind, courteous and patient and made sure I had a safe and enjoyable journey. I enjoyed the conversations with them and my transfers were smooth.


Frequently asked questions

What is the availability for these scenic flights?

They operate daily, Monday to Sunday, all year round.

Can I do this in the middle of my safari?

The morning flight returns in time to connect with their outbound flights to the Serengeti or get
back on your jeep and continue with their safari by road.

What if I need to be dropped off to JRO (Kilimanjaro International Airport)?

Passengers with evening flights out of JRO e.g. KLM, Precision, Rwandair, can be dropped off
at JRO for an additional cost, thereby avoiding the road transfer between Arusha and
Kilimanjaro International Airport.

What happens to my luggage if I'm connecting with another flight after the scenic flight?

For clients who are connecting with another flight after the Kilimanjaro scenic flight in Arusha Airport, we will store their luggage after check in. Once they return from the scenic flight they don’t need to check out and go through a security check again. We will help them with their luggage and connect the luggage to their next flight / airline.
