At Shrike, we offer a somewhat different experience to your usual Sunday—morning lie—in.

Weekend & Short Safaris in Tanzania

Tanzania: home to spectacular safaris, and in our eyes the place to visit chimpanzee colonies. Here you’ll also find pristine beaches, lush tropical forests, flamingo—filled soda lakes, and lots, lots more. Head out for action—packed game viewing in the Ngorongoro Crater, the wild undiscovered parks of Western Tanzania, and get up close to hippos and crocs on the undiscovered Rufiji River in Africa’s largest park—Nyerere National park (formerly called Selous).
Don’t forget the wildebeest migration, chimps in the Mahale Mountains, Africa’s tallest mountain—Kilimanjaro, and the naturally stunning Zanzibar archipelago, where you’ll flop on unspoiled, palm-fringed islands and swim in ginclear waters. Sounds like the world in one country. It pretty much is...
At SHRIKE, our focus is on providing you with a unique and memorable safari even if you are time is limited... no matter which city you are in Tanzania—East Africa, we can easily organize a short safari trip for you. Whether you are in Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Arusha/ Moshi, Nairobi, or Zanzibar Island...
As a locally—based tour operator, we are able to turn any one of The Shrike Specialty Safaris into a completely private safari in order to suit well with your safari needs, personal style, and preference—with your own extended safari vehicles and a top—notch safari guide specifically for you.
