Who started Moana Tanzania

My name is Gea Meshack Mohamed and I am a born and raised Tanzanian citizen and I have a huge passion for my home country. I am the founder of both the NGO Dynamic Community Impact Organization (DCI Org) and the founder of Moana Tanzania.

Since I grew up in the beautiful area of the Kilimanjaro region, I have always been passionate about the nature and culture that Tanzania has to offer. I started in the tourism business in 2016 by organizing day trips and small tours. Soon after that, I registered the company Moana Tanzania (Moana Tours Limited).

In December 2020, I received a certificate in Tourism and Travel Management of the University of Queensland, Australia. Nowadays, Moana Tanzania grew out to be a tour company that offers quality tours organized by a team of Tanzanian specialists. The Kilimanjaro,Arusha regions and Zanzibar are in my opinion one of the most beautiful areas of Tanzania. It has the most impressive safari parks and beautiful day trips destinations like lakes, waterfalls, beaches and natural hot springs. The wildlife that you can find in Tanzania is magnificent and spotting lions or elephants during a safari trip will never get boring for me. I also love to meet people from all over the world from all different backgrounds. Sharing experiences and cultures is what makes my job so special!

Since I was very young, I have always been very interested in community development and especially in child rights. With my NGO, DCI Org, which I started in 2016, I have been able to promote children’s healthcare, education and protection in order to empower the Tanzanian community. Following the guidelines of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), I am striving to keep helping the development of the Tanzanian youth. For more information about DCI Org and the current community projects that we work on, please visit the website www.dynamic-tz.org.

Waterfall 😍 It was an amazing experience 😍 Professional team and great company. The hiking tour is approximately 2*2.5km, but it is worth it at the end. I recommend it.

Gran experiencia 6 dias de safari Contacte con Moana gracias a una amiga que me los recomendo. Hicimos un safari de 6 dias con ellos, luego escogimos un tour de un dia para visitar la cascada de waterumi y una ruta del cafe, y en zanzibar tambien hicimos un tour con ellos de un dia. La verdad que la compañía fue estupenda, el personal es muy atento y amigable, nos trataron genial, nos explicaron todo. Hasta nos acompañaron a hacer gestiones (para tener internet en el mv y cambiar dinero en el banco) La verdad que los recomiendo 100%. Fue toda una experiencia!

Two thumbs up! 👍🏻👍🏻 I just climbed Kilimanjaro with Moana team, it was an unforgettable experience. The team was very helpful from start to finish: they answered all our questions about the trip prior to booking with them, they escorted us the whole time while in Moshi with all sorts of last minute errands and needs, the team who went up with us was attentive and prepared. Very good experience with them. Plus, part of the funds for the trip are used to support a Moshi education NGO of the same founder.

Felling in love with Tanzania and Moana It was the first time me and my family went to Tanzania. Thanks to my sister, who had already visted Tanzania multiple times, we booked a three day Safari Trip with Moana. I can not express how much I loved this experience and the Moana Team. We immediatly felt part of the Moana family and were treated in the best way possible. Everyone in the Moana team including Gea (CEO), Caroline, Geewa en our tourgide Ebenezer made our experience with Moana and Tanzania incredible. Not only did we have the best tour with Moana, we also became friends en had the most amzazing days. There is no doubt we will go back and book a trip with our Moana team again. You should too!

Good combination between culture and relaxing Zanzibar was a great combination between culture and relaxation. On the first day we did the Stonetown Tour. The tour was great, our tour guide told us all about the history of Zanzibar and especially the slavery museum made a real impact on us. On the second day we went on the Blue Safari tour and explored the Zanzibar Archipel by boat. It was a good combination of beautiful white beaches, swimming and great food. The other days we relaxed at the amazing resort that Moana recommended to us. We had a great time.

Beautiful landscape and lots of fun We had a great time with Moana at Lake Chala. We hiked around the lake through beautiful and diverse landscapes. Along the way we passed viewpoints that offered a good view on the lake. We closed the day off with kayaking and even crossed the border to Kenya. Our Moana tour guide made sure everything was arranged well and we had a lot of fun together during the day. I would recommend this trip.

Hidden Gem We had a great trip to Chemka Hot Springs. Chemka hot springs is a real hidden gem. In the middle of a dry area, Chemka Hot Springs is like an oasis. It was beautiful to see and very nice to hang out and swim there. Gea drove us to the Hot Springs and made sure everything was arranged well. We really recommend this trip.

Mountainbiking to the chemka hotsprings We went with mountainbikes to the hotsprings. There were several very friendly guides that accompanied us. The hotsprings were beautiful but the journey on the bikes was even more unique. Biking through the African nature and villages with mt Kilimanjaro in the background was an amazing experience. Make sure you don’t stay in the pool too late because you definitely want to be back before dark!
