Wildlife Safaris

Safari means "journey" in the Kiswahili language, the national language of Tanzania. Our safaris consist of several components. The most important is driving through the National Parks or conservation areas searching for wild animals, also called ‘game-drives’. During the safari, you will undertake several game drives. Game drives can be alternated by walking safaris, biking safaris and other tours such as cultural tours or hiking. A wildlife safari can take several days in which you stay in (tented) lodges, hotels or on basic campsites.

We have created some interesting suggestions for three, five and ten days safaris. These are just examples. We will make a tailored itinerary together with you based on your personal needs and budget.
