Locally owned and operated Zara Tours loves showing off all Tanzania’s gems, and it seems this effort has been appreciated. This is the second year in a row that the female-owned company has won the Best Tour Operator award.
Founder Zainab Ansell was also awarded in the 2019 Global Gender Summit for her innovation and sustainable business model. In the face of a male-controlled industry, her hard work and dedication to community give-back make her a true leader, not just in Tanzania, but globally.
This year, at the 2020 TANAPA Tourism Awards, Zara Tours snagged 6 tourism awards including:
Best Tour Operator (Mountain Climbing) – 1st prize for an outstanding business contribution among tour companies operating mountain climbing activity in Tanzania National Parks for the fiscal year 2018/2019
Best Tour Operator (Overall) – 2nd prize for an outstanding business contribution among Tour Companies operating in Tanzania National Parks for the fiscal year 2018/2019
Best Tour Operator (Northern Parks) – 2nd prize for an outstanding business contribution among Tour Companies operating in Tanzania National Parks for the fiscal year 2018/2019
Best Tour Operator (Walking Safari) – a recognition of outstanding business contribution among Tour Companies selling walking Safari activity in Tanzania National Parks for the fiscal year 2018/2019
Best Seasonal Camp – 3rd prize for our ‘Serengeti Wild Camp’ in recognition for outstanding business contribution among Seasonal camps operating in Tanzania National Parks for the fiscal year 2018/2019
Best Tour Guides – Three of our guides were recognized for excellence in service, one at the TANAPA awards, and the other two at the Tanzania Tour Guides Awards.
And not only did Zara Tours and their team earn and deserve these amazing awards, but they also received the Tripadvisor Travelers' Choice Award, which was another great honor!
