Established 1984

Over 35 years and counting!

We are the third generation of the 'Shah' in Shah Tours and look forward to guiding you on Africa's highest mountain, through Tanzania's vast savannah and to some of the most remote and scenic places on earth. All with a professional, safe and fun experience to make your journey perfect.

Why choose us?

Here are some of the top reasons thousands have chosen Shah Tours.

35+ years experience

We are not just saying it, we have decades of experience with many guides having worked with us for years and years creating memories since 1984.

Family owned

Currently on the third generation of the 'Shah' in Shah Tours, we have always been family owned bringing the experience and passion of many generations.


We are part of multiple organisations to ensure our standards are high. Some of our tours are also externally monitored to ensure fair and independent monitoring.

Superior guides

Most of our guides have worked with us for many years and have plenty of training, skill and real world experience to offer a superb and friendly experience in multiple languages.

Safe and reliable

Policies for safety and operations ensure our tours are enjoyable and safe. Some companies still operate without licenses and cut corners, we are not one of them!

Happy clients

Although we have never counted exactly, we can safely say that many 1000's have travelled with us and left happy. We continually improve based on feedback.

Supporting our community responsibly

With a workforce of over 95% Tanzanians we work as a family for our own progress and the progress of those around us by supporting various local organisations and initiatives to give back to our comminity, especially to those who are vulnerable. Each tour booked with us contributes to the livelihood of some of the poorest and needy in Tanzania.

Share Tanzania

We are fortunate to support a wonderful non profit organisation who work to ensure children in crisis find a safe and loving home.

Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project

We cooperate and work with KPAP to better the treatment and standards of work for our mountain crew on Kilimanjaro.


Equal opportunities, pension matching contributions, health insurance, loans, medical help for our staff and permenant team.


We try to reduce our impact on the environment by sourcing local produce recycling, reusing, avoiding printing and more to keep sustainable.
