Zara Tipping Policy

The tip system used by Zara is an essential part of the porters, cooks, drivers and guides income. They work very hard to provide the best possible services but at the same time they expect good tips in return. Our recommended tips are quite high by Tanzanian standards and there is no need for them to be exceeded, however if services were not adequate a full tip need not be paid and in this event please inform us at the Springland's Hotel reception of any problems that arose on your trip.

In order for tips to be given out fairly and to avoid possible misundestandings we would request that tips are given on your return to the Springlands Hotel. Do not pay tips on the mountain nor should you pay for any extra services while you are on the mountain other than for the purpose of refreshments (only regularly available on the Marangu Route). It is also worth bearing in mind that items of clothing and footwear, for children or adults, used or new, are also highly valued and can be given as well as money tips.
