Meet Your Dedicated Safari Planner.

Planning a safari to Tanzania with an overload of information is real stress… you simply want honest opinions and sincere recommendations that suit your needs. As a local Tanzanian, I am picky and obsessed with quality. I travel to and personally inspect every single property in our portfolio.

We can easily customize this safari into an exclusive, fully Private Safari, with you and your family, or a group of friends with your own safari guide. A private vehicle will be yours for all game drives and tours—a lovely feature! Please choose this option upon booking…

You’ll be happy to hear that you can’t go wrong.

Mid-range accommodations are well-appointed, with a focus on African hospitality and authentic safari experiences during your stay.

What is the best time to come on this safari ?

There is no best time, each season has its own special features. Safari in the rainy season [April—May, and October—November] and the landscape is beautifully green, the dust has settled and there are fewer guests on safari. The grass is fertile and tall which makes the spotting game more challenging but rewarding. The rain will mainly fall during the night. The remainder of the year is called the dry season, when there is less water available so animals tend to congregate around the water sources, making game spotting easier. This season also attracts more guests on safari specifically from June to September.

Is there a minimum or maximum age for guests on this trip ?

No there isn’t, we welcome people of all ages. Children of all ages are allowed; we do suggest that children of the ages of 3 years and up seem to get the most out of their experience. There is no upper age limit. We kindly ask you to let us know in advance if you are physically challenged or less—abled.

What sort of food can we expect ?

3—7 courses per meal; in the bush, the quality of the cuisine in lodges and camps is superb. Early riser’s coffee is served before the sunrise game drive, followed by abundant breakfast buffets, luncheons on the veranda, and a formal afternoon tea. Dinners are fashionably late following the return of the afternoon game drive, allowing time for relaxation and “sundowners” in the lounge or around the campfire.

I am lactose intolerant/ require gluten-free meals/ allergic to peanuts/ vegan. Can you cater for this ?

Yes, the chefs at each lodge or camp have been specially trained to deal with many different types of dietary requirements. They will personally discuss your upcoming meals with you. Please also be sure to notify us of dietary requirements when making your booking.

What is the earliest international flight that I can book on the last day ?

The earliest international flights you can book are those that depart at 2030 hrs or later. If you depart earlier than that, we can organize an early airport transfer for you; in this case, the earliest international departure you can book is then 1600 hrs.

The trip was amazing. Ahadi was great and the surprise he made for us was beyond words – a private balloon safari with a champagne breakfast was a definite highlight and one of the coolest experiences... I would definitely recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks so much…
