What is the secret that makes SHRIKE SAFARIS the best safari and Kilimanjaro trek operator in Tanzania?

Asked Mr. Charbel H. Tagher president of Specified Technologies Inc. when he was talking to Mark regarding his family safari to Tanzania...


"Well, there is really NO secret at all... 

The charm and wit behind our success is that We Care, Personally, and Deeply. Our people are the reason why guests consistently rate us 'Tanzania's Best.' They are the difference between an average safari… and a SHRIKE safari. And, that starts with the proper planning of your safari and continues through the first day we pick you up to the last day you say goodbye—it's that simple." Says Mr. Mark Madola, the founder of Shrike Safaris.


He continued...


"Since 2007, our experience has taught us that exceeding your expectations is necessary and unavoidable—provided that we at Shrike Safaris devote our sufficient time, energy, learning and focus to each safari we organize. We always go an extra mile to make sure that every safari is UNIQUE in every taste...


"For this reason, we organize only a few safaris and/ or Kilimanjaro treks at a time. We give each departure our full attention and this helps us to assure the success of our safaris and Kilimanjaro treks—and, more importantly, your complete satisfaction.

SHRIKE is a locally-based Tanzanian company that exclusively harnesses local talent and knowledge to make our trips the best in the business. We are a homegrown local business that likes to keep things at the grassroots level—local guides, local culture, local knowledge, and local expertise. Unlike many tour operators (especially in the US & Europe), who merely act as booking agents and turnover the actual operations to local companies to handle their trips. When you work with us, you are getting an AUTHENTIC Tanzania experience from Tanzanians themselves.

SHRIKE can take you to absolutely sensational locations that are off-limits to most travelers and reward you with a-kind-of-experience that will change your life forever...
