complete many training courses on subjects such as natural history,

procedures. All guides speak Swahili and English fluently. Each guide
also speaks a native tribal language that has been passed on to them,
depending on which of the 120 tribes they were born into.
guides have a passion for Kilimanjaro and all of Tanzania.
We truly love helping others experience the amazing beauty of our country.
The menus for all climbs are specially prepared to provide a balanced
diet of fresh fruit, vegetables, plenty of protein and carbohydrates. We
have tried to choose food items that are easiest to digest at high
altitude. Our cooks undergo extensive training and we have ongoing
workshops to review menus. The cooks are particularly vigilant in their
hygiene practices as contracting stomach bugs are common for visitors to
the developing world.
At camp in the morning, we will wake you up from your tent with a cup of
hot chocolate, coffee or tea and provide a full breakfast in the dining
tent. Lunch is served on the table on the trail also with your
favorite hot drink. Dinner is typically a five course meal served at the
dinning tent. Coffee, tea or other hot drinks are available with all
meals and on request between meals. While hiking some people have a
favorite snack that they like; it is a good idea to bring this from
home. We also cater to different dietary requirements and full
vegetarian menus can be provided on request.
Clean water is critical to your health on the climb. We supply high volume
commercial Katadyn water filters which can produce the vast quantities of
clean drinking water your body requires for hard work at high altitudes.
Katadyn is the only water filter endorsed by the World Health Organization
to guarantee pure water.
and Social Practices
Destination Tanzania Safaris
not only strives to offer the highest
standard of service, but also to be the most socially and environmentally
responsible adventure travel company in Northern Tanzania. Although there
are many interpretations of "ecotourism," we feel that most importantly it
means choosing a company that is respectful of the environment and the local
cultures. At Destination
Tanzania Safaris, we practiced
ecotourism long before it became a buzzword and we have a broad
understanding of the issues. We are always involved in training,
conservation and social development programs that ensure that the net impact
of our company in Tanzania is positive.
