  • Flight Issues? We have your back!

    "...First of all, we had some difficultly getting to Tanzania because of flight cancellations etc. due to the pandemic.

  • Fair Wages for Crew

    "...I want to start off by saying that Popote is a local company, whose founder used to be a porter.

Popote pays their staff fair wages (a huge priority for me), while still maintaining good prices for their customers..."
