All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy... and bring back home ever—lasting memories

Professional Kilimanjaro Mountain Guides
A mountain guide's knowledge, sensitivity, and good humor are some of the most essential elements of a successful Kilimanjaro trek. From the moment you first meet your mountain guides, you know that you are in good hands.

We Guarantee your Departure
Every Shrike program is guaranteed to depart as scheduled, regardless of the number of participants.
Once your departure date has been confirmed and a 10% deposit has been made for your trip, we will never cancel for any reason other than Force Majeure.
Flying Doctor services
When you travel in Tanzania with Shrike, you are assured of the services of the Flying Doctors, a group of superbly qualified physicians who travel by aircraft throughout the bush to effective treatment and transportation.
This assures Shrike guests in remote locations of prompt medical attention and air transportation to the nearest medical facility in the unlikely event that an emergency should arise. However, this should NOT replace your travel insurance.
The Finest and Well—equipped 4x4 Safari Vehicle
Your journey on safari involves exhilarating days on the trail of African wildlife, making the quality of your ground transportation of the utmost importance.
Shrike is extremely proud of the high quality of our safari vehicles—just a further example of our dedication to providing you with the utmost authenticity, comfort, and personal service. Every guest is additionally assured of a window seat directly under a pop—up roof in Ngorongoro Crater.
All Meals from start to completion
We take good food seriously—we know it’s a big part of your safari. From the moment you arrive, all meals are provided as part of Shrike’s all—inclusive safari cost. Farm—to—table dining experience is available at Gibb's Farm.
It is our desire that travelers be free to spend their time reveling in the splendid sights and sounds of Africa, rather than making inquiries of the hotel clerk as to where to eat, what kind of food is provided, how to get there, how much to pay and how to get back to the hotel/ lodge.
The Shrike’s NO tipping policy...
At Shrike, we recognize that nothing can spoil a unique experience in a foreign land faster than the burden of deciphering local gratuity customs.
We handle all gratuities in advance, allowing you the freedom to relax and enjoy your adventure. This all—inclusive safari policy offers substantial cost savings and is possible thanks to the volume of travelers visiting Tanzania with us each year.
Complimentary transfers to and from the Airport is our pleasure
Travel to and from the airport in Tanzania is available at your pleasure and at no charge, regardless of which airline you fly or when you arrive or depart.
Once you have booked your safari, you are our valued guest in Tanzania at any time of the day or night. Please let us know the name of the airport where we shall pick you up and if you have not yet booked your International flight, we can advise you accordingly.
Immediate check—in and Room upgrades
What could be more welcoming... your hotel room is available from the moment you walk through the door until the moment you depart for the airport.
Moreover, Shrike guests are automatically conferred preferential rooms at virtually every hotel, lodge, or tented camp in East Africa.

Our staff will be pleased to assist you on your shopping adventure and to help you in the packing and shipping of your treasures back home at the day’s end.
Complimentary Bottled Water & Bevarages
Shrike adds a sparkling touch to the fresh and delicious Tanzanian fare by providing travelers with complimentary beverages [including soft drinks, house wines, well spirits, and local beers] at each meal on all our safaris.
We also offer the same refreshments and bottled water, soft drinks as well as snacks, in each of our safari vehicles during all game viewings.
Bush Cocktails at African Sunset
Bush cocktails are extraordinary, whether an elaborate affair or a powerfully private experience... This is a special moment in time.
As the warmth of the African day gives way to the cool of the evening, we experience a rare peace and beauty and find ourselves as one with the land and its inhabitants.
