When you travel on a wildlife safari with us, you know you’ll be supporting responsible and sustainable tourism that helps preserve an outstanding country.
To leave our campgrounds as we found them. To treat all of our customers as we would like to be treated. To instantly solve any complaint or problem our clients are having.
To giveback to the country of Tanzania, through our help with schools, books, health issues and conservation efforts. To keep as much profit as possible within Tanzania, hoping to help the economy of this special country.
We believe we have a unique company with an excellent reputation, offering much and more of what there is to see and do in the East African bush on a wildlife safari.
We work with the same local suppliers in lodging, air charter, and hot air balloon safaris, but offer it to you at an affordable price – giving you good value for your vacation dollar.
Our Tanzanian office is in Arusha, the starting point for most northern circuit safaris, and nearest to the most populated wildlife safari destinations.
Customer service is our number one priority.
Our new Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles are specially fitted to give you room to breathe, move around and get that photo you so desire.
Most wildlife safari companies seat 7 in their vehicles, we seat only 5. They also feature coolers with chilled water and soft drinks, pop up roof hatches for shade,
removable arm rest, ample storage, high back seats. Vehicles are cleaned and serviced daily.
All of our Naturalists and Guides have spent lifetimes traversing the bush and national parks of Tanzania.
Having years studying the flora, fauna and wildlife in schools with constant training and retraining, they know by instinct what it is you’re longing to see.
Every wildlife safari is different; from a cheetah with cubs to a lion with a kill, you can be assured that our guides will do everything possible to make your safari the trip of a lifetime.
While we like to keep our groups small and personal, we can accommodate as many as you need. Our pricing ranges from budget camping safaris to true five-star luxury whether in lodging or in camping.
Custom safaris are available to everyone – from family groups with children, to honeymooners and non-profit organizations.
