At Tanzania-Experience, we believe in corporate responsibility. For us this means not only caring for our guests but also looking after our employees, the environment and local communities in the areas we operate 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.
Our trekking porters are paid fair remunerations and receive nourishing meals and adequate gear while on mountain treks.
Our safari and mountain guides receive regular internal and external training courses to promote lifelong learning and skills development. These courses include first-aid-trainings, language courses, guiding skills and specific oxygen trainings for our mountain guides.
We are a member of the Serengeti De-Snaring Programme by the Frankfurt Zoological Society. As part of the programme, anti-snaring teams set out to detect and remove snares planted by poachers to target wildlife in the Serengeti. The anti-snaring teams consist of retired rangers and members of the local community. This way, wildlife conservation goes hand-in-hand with uplifting local communities in the Serengeti.
Supporting local businesses is essential. Whenever possible we buy local. All lunch boxes and groceries for our camping safaris are bought from local shops, just as our guides’ safari uniforms.
We have supported the local Nkoanekoli Secondary School with funds and educational trips to neighbouring Arusha National Park. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the importance of an intact environment and the career prospects it can offer.
A company’s success is directly linked to the success of those around it and at Tanzania-Experience, we value and promote these relationships.
