Responsibility

Tanzania-Experience believes in corporate responsibility. For us this means not only caring for our clients but also looking after our employees, the environment and local communities in areas we are operating in.

Tanzania-Experience is a licensed member of the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO) and also subscribes to the ethics of the Interpretive Guide Society of which the company is a corporate member. The company is also a member of Atta (African Travel & Tourism Association) and ATTA (Adventure Travel Trade Association).

We believe in fair treatment of our staff – this means excellent service and a good team spirit on a safari or trekking trip. Most of our reservations and operational staff have been with the company for years and sales staff regularly travels in Tanzania to experience new areas or accommodation options.

Trekking porters are paid fair remunerations and receive nourishing meals and adequate gear while on mountain treks.

Our safari and mountain guides were all born and raised in East Africa and have excellent guiding skills. Regular internal and external training courses ensure a high level of customer care. These courses include first-aid-trainings, language courses, guiding skills and specific oxygen trainings for mountain guides.

As a tour company based in East Africa we naturally see the environment as our most precious asset and try to keep our impact as slight as possible. Our driver guides follow strict rules to avoid disturbance of wildlife or damaging the nature (e.g. by driving off road inside the national parks). We have implemented several initiatives to reduce our waste and CO₂ emissions. This includes recycling water bottles and using LPG gas and bio waste briquettes for cooking.

Caring for the environment also means working against poaching. We support the local Nkoanekoli Secondary School with funds and educational trips to neighboring Arusha National Park and demonstrate the importance of an intact environment and the career prospects it can offer.

Tanzania-Experience is one of the main sponsors of the annual March for the Elephants and Rhinos that promotes awareness about poaching of Tanzania’s wildlife.

Supporting local businesses is essential when investing in a country. Whenever possible we buy local. For example groceries for camping trips are bought from local shops and our safari clothing is manufactured by a local organization which educates and employs disabled people.

Charity starts at home. The best way to uplift a community is by employing them. Tanzania-Experience employs 100+ local people which in turn ensure the education and feeding of hundreds of dependants.

A company’s success is directly linked to the success of those around it and Tanzania-Experience keeps improving these relationships.
