TANZANIA, AFRICA – October 1st-7th of 2015, Zara Tours will lead its next biannual climb up Mount Kilimanjaro with the goal of cleaning the mountain and keeping it beautiful for many centuries to come.
Twice a year, the Zara team arranges a very special trip up Kilimanjaro, one focused on restoring the mountain and clearing away debris. All Zara porters, along with many others who are members of the Mount Kilimanjaro Porter Society (MKPS), will make the trek up, cleaning along the way. The group is inviting climbers of every level to join this environmental effort by volunteering to help preserve the majestic beauty of Kilimanjaro.
Volunteers will be given a 15% discount off of the regular rate, and 20% of the total payment will go to the Zara Charity, which supports many different charitable projects across Tanzania.
Zara Tours has always been highly conscious of the surrounding environment, and determined to be a part of its preservation. The company was honored with the Tanzania Tourist Board Sustainable Tourism Award for 2011, and at the beginning of 2015, the Traveler’s Eye presented it with the Sustainable Business Award for outstanding contribution in Conservation, Community Development, and Capacity Building Achievement.
Leading the fight against poaching, Zara Tours is also enlisting the help of tourists to protect the threatened wildlife of Tanzania, banding together with the Ministry of Natural Resource and Tourism, Tanzania National Parks Department, to defend the country’s natural heritage.
