July 7 marks our 17th year anniversary... we are celebrating one decade and six years of providing our guests with exceptional safari experiences in East Africa and changing the lives of the orphaned and destitute children in Tanzania. A 17—year history in Tanzania means we've worked out the details... we know how to get things done. It is our passion to share our knowledge and understanding of the African wilderness and its inhabitants with you.
This year, we are paying tribute to the new Lion King and to #ProtectThePride—Disney’s campaign in support of the Lion Recovery Fund, a global organization dedicated to the future of Africa’s wild lions. Be informed that since the release of the original Lion King, the population of wild lions in Africa has decreased by 50% :(
We crafted this transformative safari to highlight the crowning jewels of Tanzania’s safari destinations ...8—Day Tanzania Safari takes you through the baobab and elephant-dotted landscape of Tarangire, to the breathtaking Eden that is the Ngorongoro Crater, finishing in the world-renowned Serengeti, with its endless horizons and abundant wildlife ...with an option of meeting with the KopeLion Team in Ngorongoro, a beneficiary of the Lion Recovery Fund that ensures that the living ‘Lion King story is continued for our children’s children.

Serengeti | Four Seasons Lodge
Today we fly to the legendary Serengeti - Four Seasons Lodge one of those magical African names. Probably the first Tanzanian game lodge to dazzle the world with glamorous luxury in the bush, it has also claimed the coveted title of “Best Hotel in the World” by Travel+Leisure—one of the only two Tanzanian properties that have won recently.
Farewell Lunch | Fly Back Home
One last look at the Serengeti and we fly to Arusha, where you’ll enjoy a farewell lunch at Arusha Coffee Lodge. After lunch, visit the adjoining arts center to see the craftsmanship of local disabled artisans... relax in a day room before proceeding to the airport and bid farewell to this grand journey...
We do an anniversary every year ...however, for the next 5 years, we are focusing on paying tribute to the new Lion King and to #ProtectThePride through—KopeLion project in Ngorongoro. It's sad that since the release of the original Lion King, the wild lion inhabitants have halved.
Apart from protecting the lions, I really concentrate on maximizing choices of experiences in every location you are visiting... and hitting your every need and interest.
Mark Madola—the Founder of Shrike Safaris
Gratuities included for meals and porterage even substantial ones to your Safari Guide and Safari Leader from beginning to end of your safari and you won’t be “nickel and dimed” for WIFI, tips at the lodges, drinks, and laundry; all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy...
From the moment that we pick you up until the moment of your reluctant departure, all meals and beverages (including soft drinks, house wines, well spirits, and local beers) are provided as part of our all-inclusive safari cost—an extravagant saving and an enormous convenience.
The quality of the cuisine in lodges and camps is also superb. Meats, vegetables, and fruit arrive daily, fresh from the rich farmlands in Mwanza or Arusha. 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.
Once a full payment or a 25% deposit has been made for this safari your trip will depart as scheduled, we will never cancel for any reason other than Force Majeure. Your departure is guaranteed 100% No surcharge or supplemental cost ever imposed.
Scheduled Domestic Flights
Shrike offers domestic flights between locations... which is far more relaxing, cleaner, and gives you over 100% MORE TIME in the parks and reserves than if you're to drive...
