Rated Africa's Number One Safari Outfitter by National Geographic Adventure

Every safari is private and individually designed to the needs of the particular party. The earlier you book the better. Many of the camps and lodges book up as much as a year in advance.

To request a detailed and priced itinerary we need to know:

  • Time of year you want to travel and for how long:
    Tanzania trips are usually 10-14 days.
  • How luxurious or how adventurous you want it:
    Many of the trips consist of a mix of the two.
  • Your group size:
    The more people in a group the more cost effective it is.
  • How much walking you like:
    Or any other specific interests.
