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.

    FAQs

    Frequently asked questions

    There are a handful of international flights that land directly at Zanzibar airport, otherwise the best option would be to fly to Dar es Salaam and then take a short 15 mins flight to Zanzibar or take a ferry to the island. 

    Yes, certain vaccinations are recommended for Tanzania and Zanzibar. The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend the following vaccinations for Tanzania and Zanzibar: 

    • hepatitis (A and B)
    • typhoid
    • cholera
    • yellow fever*
    • rabies
    • meningitis
    • tetanus

    *Proof of a yellow fever vaccination is required if you are travelling from a country where yellow fever is present. 

    These are the recommended shots for travel to Zanzibar, but they are only general guidelines. We strongly advise that you consult with a travel clinic or your doctor when planning your holiday to Zanzibar to ensure that you get the shots that you need.

    How long you need for a fulfilling Zanzibar holiday depends on what you want to do, but we recommend at least a week as there’s just so much to do and explore. 

    The best time to go to Zanzibar is from June to September/October.  These are Zanzibar’s dry seasons. However, the cooler temperatures of winter are still warm, so you’ll still enjoy pleasant beach weather. A less ideal time to travel to Zanzibar would be during the two rainy seasons: November and April to May.
