The founders of Django.Tours

We are the founders and the heart of Django.Tours, Estella und Florian. When you fill out the contact form or book a tour you always communicate with one of us directly.

Estella

I am Stella and the face of Django.Tours in Tanzania. I was born in the region of Dodoma (Tanzanias capital) and I am working with Florian since end of 2016.

Until mid 2018 I was managing Florians Hotel in Zanzibar and have seen how service quality can differ and often doesn’t meet the expectations of the guests or isn‘t worth the price.

So it was my dream, which came true with Django.Tours, not to only serve you as a guest in a hotel, but organize your entire trip and adventure to Tanzania. That way I can make sure that this beautiful country is presented from its best perspective and you will have a once in a lifetime Africa experience!

I am convinced that when we meet on a personal level, you will be able to discover a part of the real Africa.

We decided to present no „ready to book“ tours on the website but invite you instead to join a dialogue with us to let us know about your desires, budget and dreams.. That way we can make sure to meet your expectations.

Often money is a limiting factor. Therefore we don‘t see any value in offering (and charging) for things you don‘t want to have.
In the end all the tour operators work with the same local partners and many of the prices are set by official regulations. So be sure that whenever you will get a discount some of services are missing or in the worst case there are hidden costs.

That is why we will ask you what you are willing to pay for and will include exactly that into the offer.

That simpel: custom-tailored!

Welcome to Tanzania, my home. I am thrilled to be there for you.


Florian

I am Florian and since I visited Tanzania for the first time in 2014 I am constantly invested in this beautiful country. Since the beginning of 2015 I built, ran and owned a hotel in Zanzibar.

This is how I met Stella whom I hired as a manager before becoming my business partner at Django.Tours.

As during my time on Zanzibar serving our guests at the Lodge I focus on creating lasting memories for our guests at Django.Tours. I want you to be excited and have a lifetime experience. Travelling in East Africa can be difficult and daunting. My expectations were often disappointed, but nothing could cloud a cast over the beauties and adventures I experienced in Tanzania. This knowledge I will put in to your trip, so that you have an unforgettable time.

When it matters to you and you want to pay for the extra guidance you can include me to your tour. If not, Stella will be your contact person in Tanzania… but let us talk about that on the phone.

Simien Ethiopia Trekking by TAZ

Taz, founder of Simien Ethiopia Trekking

Hello, my name is Tazebew “Taz” Wagnew. 
I was born 1992 in one of the villages in the Simien Mountains National Park and have spent my whole life in this beautiful area. My village is near Gich called Ambaras, one of the mountain camps

When I was 12 years old and I completed my elementary school I moved to Debark, now home to the National Park head office. 
I was very lucky that I moved to Debark as it gave me a great opportunity to go to the local secondary school.
Many of the mountain children don’t get this chance and I am forever thankful to my grand father Negash Wereta. He also played a great role for the Simien Mountains to be established and registered as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

After I graduated from high school the regional bureau of the tourism commission was holding guiding recruitment and I passed the entrance exam and began studying to be a mountain guide. As an experienced guide I have taken a lot of training about the Simien Mountains, including:

  • Birds
  • Mammals
  • Plants
  • Customer care
  • Mountaineering
  • Trekking arrangement
  • Ethiopian history
  • Guiding technique
  • First Aid

Sahara Travelling

Yahya, founder of Sahara Travelling

I am Yahya Bamhmed. I am born in 1989 and come from a family of nomads. I was born in the desert and lived a nomadic life with my family until I was 7.

Then we moved to M’hamid El Ghizlane, a small village community on the edge of the endless desert so that I could attend school.

Most of the inhabitants of M’Hamid are descendants of Nomads, therefore the nomadic tradition is vividly alive in the village.

Staying in Zanzibar was totally relaxing and wonderful. The lodge was set up and decorated in a simple and very tasteful way. The food was Tanzanian style and amazing. It was a great place to just hang out and read in our own space in front of the accomodation. At the same time it was…

the perfect safari trip

Claudia Vet Safari, Tarangire 21/02/2020

Tarangire was the perfect safari trip for a quick and still exciting encounter with Tanzanian wildlife. The landscape is stunning and we saw lots of elephants, giraffes, gazelles, warthogs, a leopard and colorful birds. Chacha, our guide was very knowledgable and made this trip an unforgettable experience. 

a humbling experience

Claudia Vet Meru 21/02/2020

Climbing Mt Meru was a humbling experience and scary at first as I have never climbed a moutnain that high (6400m). I wasn’t sure what to expect. The guides and their team though were amazing and so knowledgeable that I completely trusted them to guide us up the mountain and back down again safely. The…

I still get goosebumps

Claudia Vet Kilimanjaro 21/02/2020

Looking back on this climb I still get goosebumps reliving this incredible experience. After the exhausting climb of Mt Meru it seemed almost imposible to climb 1600m higher to the top of Africa. The exceptional organisation, the very trustworthy team of guides and the mind-blowing presence of Kilimanscharo itself made this trip an unforgettable and…

An unforgettable experience

Awesome organisation and very knowledgable guides

Claudi Vet Meru, Kili 18/02/2020

I climbed Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanscharo with Django Tours and it was an unforgettable experience. Both ascents were accompanied by guides who were very confident and knowledgeable about what to expect from the climbs and they prepared us very well. Everybody in the group – porters, cooks and guides were super-friendly, funny and there…

Wow!

great adventure

Lisa 18/02/2020

I went on a trip with Django tours from Daressalam to Kipili at Lake Tanganyika. We travelled in an offroader through the country and had a great time! The guides always knew the best spots and helped us in getting around safely. If you fancy an individual Tanzania adventure with nice people, you should definitely…

magic of the desert

Judith Medical Doctor Sahara Marokko 30/10/2019

A footwalk through the diverse landscape of the Sahara, following the rhythm of the camels and getting up with the sun. A meditative journey to yourself with food for thought for reflection by Florian. A recommendation for everyone!

freedom

Steffi Medical Doctor Kilimanjaro, Meru, Safari 23/07/2019

This year I went on Mount Meru, Safari and Kilimanjaro with Django.Tours.One of the first things that comes to mind when I think about the trip is: “Freedom”. A very special form of freedom: freedom from everyday life, the constraints of civilization with all modern achievements.On the hikes you are forced to deal with yourself…
