Our History

Mauly Tours was founded in 1983 by Salim and Shariffa Mauly, who were born in western Tanzania and who came to Moshi to establish their home and family. From the beginning, Salim and Shariffa worked to deliver professional, friendly and innovative service. At its inception, Mauly Tours was the only company in Moshi doing airport transfers. In 1985, Salim passed away, after which Shariffa single-handedly took the reins of the fledgling company. While raising her four daughters, she also travelled around the globe to promote Mauly Tours. Under her capable leadership, Mauly Tours grew to become one of northern Tanzania’s most respected operators. Now, we – Mozzah, Munira, Samira, Farida and Nadir – have also joined with Shariffa, and together we are working to continue this legacy.


Mauly Tours prides itself on being a family-owned, family-run, 100% Tanzanian company that has been helping visitors enjoy Tanzania for over thirty years. We are committed to providing high-quality, efficient service to every one of our guests, and we invest our time and resources to that end. In addition to our Moshi main office, we have a branch office in Arusha, with a second branch office planned for Dar es Salaam.


What we offer

Mauly Tours offers a comprehensive selection of itineraries customised to fit your schedule, interests and budget. We cover all regions of Tanzania, from the country’s famous attractions – such as Mt Kilimanjaro, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater – to its lesser-known corners. We will work with you to provide the most scenic and relaxing holiday experience possible.


A hallmark of a Mauly Tours safari or trek is the warm, personalized service that begins from the day you arrive in Tanzania. In true Tanzanian style, Mauly’s hospitable welcome begins at the airport, where our representatives will meet you and ensure your smooth transfer to your hotel. Once you are settled, our staff will give you a briefing on what to expect during your safari. We will continue to be available to assist you throughout the duration of your visit.


Why Choose Mauly Tours

Ahsante, thank you, for giving us the chance to introduce ourselves, Now that you have heard what we have to say, listen to what some of our guests have said:

“The organization was perfect for all of our tours. Many thanks to all the teams who were involved – Mauly Tours did a splendid job. The safari was great thanks to Suleiman Mustafa our driver guide and our mountain trips were brilliant as well thanks to Dr. Mogli, Derrek and the rest of the team. They did a really excellent job…. Later we’re intending to write a blog about Mauly Tours. We really can recommend it.”

“We have just arrived back….from our trip to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro area with your company. We feel our travel would not be complete without writing to you…We were met at the airport by Bariki. From the first moments we were welcomed and treated like old friends. We then spent the next nine days being pampered and guided throughout the region with the utmost courtesy and knowledge….Bariki is a first grade guide, a most professional safari companion and has now become a good friend. His sense of humour made us feel at ease as well as making every day a new experience. We laughed and learned constantly. At every hotel arrival we were treated like welcome guests. His professional attention to every detail made our trip flawless….I would also like to mention that this is my third trip with Mauly and it just keeps getting better. We congratulate you on your outstanding enterprise and team.”
