Tanzania Horizon

About Tanzania Horizon Safaris

We are a team of enthusiastic nature and adventure lovers, who have dedicated their lives to outdoor activities a long time before making it their profession. Inspired by nature, dedicated to let you enjoy the true beauty that Tanzania has to offer. We are a locally owned and runned company. Since we started, we have dedicated ourselves to make your staying in Tanzania an unforgettable experience.

Most of our team members and guides were born and raised in Tanzania. This can ensure you of the deep knowledge and connection we have to our land and our nature. But we also know our customer needs and are happy to present Tanzania in the very best way to all our upcoming guests. We are constantly updating our knowledge, gear and equipment to offer you the best possible service during your stay. We have personally travelled to all our offered destinations in order to know all details of our tours.

Our office is located right at the footstep of Mount Kilimanjaro in the mountain climbers capital of Moshi. Our local presence is exactly what makes it possible for us to give accurate, competent and up-to-date travel advice to our clients and to ensure the highest comfort and safety standards in our expeditions. We are a fully licensed tour operator and we have hosted thousands of guests from all over the world.

Tanzania Horizon Safaris started out with only three people and has constantly grown since 2016. Most of our team members have worked in tourism for more than 10 years, bringing in a large capacity of experience and knowledge.

Coleman

Coleman is one of our most experienced guides with more than 30 years of experience. He grew up on the slopes of Kilimanajro in the village of Marangu. Has learned what it takes to climb Kilimanajro from the peak. He started out in 1995 as a porter, carrying equipment, setting up tents and preparing gear for the exhausting days on the mountain.
IN 2004 he made his licence as professional guide and has led hundreds of successful climbers to the top of Africa. There have been times when he used to climb Kilimanjaro 3 to 4 times per month. Coleman is now helping us to coordinate our groups and gives important advice on improving gear and necessary details – always with an eye on quality and comfort for our climbers.

Jonas

Jonas is our second very well experienced mountain guide. Originally from Arusha, he has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro more than 200 times with hundreds of international clients. He literally made the mountain his second home, spending more time on the mountain than at his home village.
Jonas knows all possible routes on Mount Kilimanjaro and has climbed all of them frequently, knowing the mountain with all its weather conditions and extremes. He is also giving advice on equipment and gear for our climbers and has become one of our most important team members, also involved in our business strategy to constantly improve our customer services on the mountain.

Sam

Sam has become a member of Tanzania Horizon Safaris and is responsible for our guests from Germany. He studied German in Arusha and has since then taken over communication with our guests who are not 100% fluent in english. As it is not only about climbing the mountain, but also to understand and learn from nature, communication plays an essential role to fully enjoy your time. Sam is not only a passionate mountaineer but also passionate about explaining Kilimanjaro’s secrets to our climbers.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth is the heart and soul of Tanzania Horizon Safaris. She is coordinating all bookings and details from first emails, hotel booking, diet plans during our trips to departure day. Together with other field coordinators she is literally taking care of all steps that are required to let organize our client’s time in Tanzania. 

Elizabeth’s most remarkable characteristics are precision and efficiency. If there is anything you need to know about Kilimanjaro or Safari in Tanzania, you can be assured that Elizabeth knows it.

Our Mission

Our mission is to organize comfortable, unforgettable travels to Tanzania to fully enjoy the beauty of the country
Our team has travelled personally to all our offered destinations in Tanzania in order to make that everything is arranged as wanted by our customers and not leaving any doubts about the quality of our trips. We understand that travelling all the way from Tanzania requires a bigger investment and longer schedule than most other vacations – so we know about the doubts that clients might have. Our communication and experience will make sure that you will get exactly what you are paying for and we will make sure that your planned safari and climb will be planned in detail so that you can fully focus on enjoying your vacation stress free from start to finish.

Our Dedicated Team

What sets our team apart from others? There are two main reasons:
We treat our team like family and our customers recognize this. Working together always needs mutual respect. Climbing and hiking on a mountain like Kilimanjaro is great teamwork, it starts from selecting the best route, knowing the weather conditions, having the right equipment with you and last but not least to select the right crew members to achieve your goal with the best team available. All our guides know their porters over many years and can count on them in all situations. After every climb we have a conversation with our guides and clients and appreciate their feedback in order to improve our services. We want all our clients to enjoy the time they spend in Tanzania and at the same time let local people participate in our success by paying fair salaries and encouraging our team to always improve their skills and knowledge to provide the best service.
Our services and communications. We value your time so we keep our communication fast and efficient so that you will receive the information you really need. All our team members are passionate about what they are doing, that starts from email communication to creating personalized itineraries to welcoming you personally on arrival in Tanzania. Our guides will share all their knowledge about hiking Kilimanjaro and the various national parks on safari. All the accommodations that we are working with are hand picked and our team has visited each place personally in order to provide you first hand advice for your specific travel.
