Biashara

"Their knowledge of the chimps (knowing each one by name and recognising their voices) was amazing and their general knowledge about the environment etc second to none. " The Dodds, Sept 14

Biashara means 'business' in Swahili and how we conduct our business in Tanzania is a huge part of what makes Nomad the company it is today. As part of Nomad's day-to-day operations, we actively invest in our staff and the wider community in a number of ways. We've always done so and will continue doing so because we think it's right for companies to play an active role.

  • OUR UNIQUE GUIDE MICRO FINANCE SCHEME
    For many years now we have been providing our Tanzanian guides with micro-finance loans to buy their own safari vehicles.  We then hire the guides and their cars, allowing them to earn double.
  • RECRUITMENT AND OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN
    Central to our core business is the wish to see Nomad folk do the best they can for themselves. Many of our top guides started out as waiters or room stewards, and we continue to look for ways of giving everyone opportunities to realise their own ambitions within the company.  We're especially proud of Emmanuel, our bike messenger, who is now competing at the Tanzanian National Cycling events and doing exceptionally well. His employment with us affords him better food which has made a huge difference to his performance. He also gets loads of practice on the job!
  • GUIDE TRAINING
    Since the early days of Nomad guides, we've had possibly the most continuous and rigorous guide training program in Tanzania. Each year, both old and new guides come together to advance their knowledge through a series of modules and practical examinations run by experts in the field. This not only includes wildlife skills and bushcraft, but photography, general knowledge and basic hospitality skills to make them amongst the best in the African safari industry. We are truly proud of our guides, and all our Nomad people, and we wouldn't be what we are without them.
  • GETTING INVOLVED
    We don't operate in a vacuum and as a company, we take a keen interest in what is going on throughout Tanzania and Africa.  We are actively involved in our national organisations that work towards better governance of wildlife and natural resources, and are strong advocates for responsible tourism wherever our voice can be heard.
  • GOOD BUSINESS
    In addition to the Nomad Trust, we contribute to various organisations that are doing wonderful work around Tanzania. Where we can, we choose to do business in a way that has a positive impact on local people and special communities. Most of the furniture in Lamai, for example, was made by a company that has been training up former street kids as expert carpenters.
  • ECO-LOOs
    Many guests are blissfully unaware of the difficulty of obtaining water in certain remote areas of Tanzania. In some of the places we operate, water bowsers must travel 80km each day to fetch enough water just for showers. To reduce the burden on our sensitive habitat, we chose to adopt eco-toilets that use a minimum amount of water and environmentally sound digestors while still ensuring the comfort of guests.
