    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. High season attracts more guests on safari specifically from June to September.

    How many participants per departure?

    In keeping with our commitment to personalized service and exclusive arrangements, the Shrike Specialty safaris are always small and intimate in size—carefully crafted to avoid any “big-group” feeling. Groups vary from as few as 4 guests [and what service!] to an average of 6 and not more than 12 participants ...believed to be the smallest group in the industry. Our safari vehicle accommodates no more than six guests.

    Can I transform this trip into a private safari?

    We 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 ask for this option upon booking...

    Yes, the chefs at each lodge 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 if I need serious medical attention while on safari?

    As a local tour operator, we can recommend the best physicians. However, in more remote locations of Tanzania, you are assured of the services of the Flying Doctors—a group of well-qualified physicians who travel by aircraft throughout the bush to provide treatment and transportation. This assures Shrike guests of prompt medical attention and air transportation in the unlikely event that an emergency should arise.
