Ms. Zainab Ansell’s journey with Zara Tanzania Adventures is one of passion, legacy, and a deep commitment to social and environmental responsibility. As the visionary founder and CEO, Ms. Zainab has transformed the company into a trailblazer in the tourism industry, guided by her unwavering belief that travel can and should create a positive impact.

At the heart of Zara Tanzania Adventures lies the Zara Charity, a testament to Ms. Zainab’s dedication to uplifting local communities.

By providing fair wages, proper equipment, and extensive training, Zara has set a new industry standard, empowering porters and their families while creating a more ethical and sustainable trekking experience.

But Zainab’s vision extends beyond just the Kilimanjaro expeditions. Through the Zara Charity, the company has invested in a wide range of impactful initiatives, from healthcare and education to environmental conservation. These initiatives not only better the lives of the people in the communities Zara serves, but also forge deep and lasting connections between travelers and the land they explore.

When you choose to embark on a journey with Zara Tanzania Adventures, you’re not just booking a trip – you’re supporting a legacy of compassion, joining a movement that celebrates the richness of Tanzanian culture and the splendor of its natural wonders. Under Zainab’s visionary leadership, Zara has become a beacon of responsible tourism, inspiring others to travel with purpose and leave a positive footprint wherever they go.
