Zara Tours caters to different trekking skill levels in their Tanzania tours. While Mount Kilimanjaro is often on the bucket list for trekkers, it isn’t a technically difficult mountain. What attracts tourists and climbers alike is the beauty of the area and the height of the mountain itself. The highest African mountain and highest free-standing mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro attracts approximately 60,000 tourists annually and about 15% of those visitors come to trek.
Climbing records have been set based on age and ability and include an 89-year-old, a 10-year-old, a wheelchair user, and a quadruple amputee. The dream of trekking Mount Kilimanjaro is really for anyone with the physical and mental endurance to reach for the peak. The ultimate key is proper altitude acclimation. Zara Tour guides are highly trained in supporting hikers wanted to reach the peak, regardless of ability.
Trained in understanding signs of altitude sickness, first aid, cooking, and knowledge of the trails, the Zara Tours porters make dreams come true for those drawn to the exotic wonder of Tanzania.
But it’s not just on the mountain this is true. A wide variety of tourists also come for Tanzania tours of the local culture and wildlife safaris. Guided safaris by vehicle and a wide array of tour options allow guests to create an adventure for their interests and abilities.
Walking tours or vehicle tours allow guests to choose options that work best for their age, fitness levels, physical abilities, and more. No one is excluded from experiencing the majestic wonders of a Tanzania tour.
Due to a variety of touring options, surprising a loved one with a Tanzania vacation package is a wonderful idea. Outdoorsy and adventurous, or tour busy and luxurious; young in years or young in spirit; there are packages that allow every type of person, or every mood of a person to be accommodated. Rest beachside, trek, safari, sight-see, immerse yourself in culture, give back to the community or environment—whatever you have in mind, it’s available in a Tanzania tour with Zara Tours!
