Tanzania

Like its northern neighbour Kenya, Tanzania is a country blessed with the epic landscapes, ancient cultures, abundant flora and iconic wildlife that usually spring to mind when one thinks of Africa.

It's largely untamed and unspoiled and contains an enormous variety of stunning landscapes ranging from deserts and grassy savannas to tropical beaches, fertile valleys and the rugged peaks of the Great Rift Valley.

The country is dotted with national parks known for their spectacular scenery and significant wildlife populations. It's here that you'll have the chance to see Africa's iconic 'Big 5' game animals up close and in their natural environments, and to experience the fascinating culture and traditions of the Masai people.

Head to the Serengeti National Park to witness the awe-inspiring sight of the great annual migration, as millions of wildebeest and other animals make their yearly northward journey into Kenya's Masai Mara; or descend into the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest caldera, to find a treasure trove of exotic wildlife including lions, elephants, pink flamingoes and the endangered black rhino.

Challenge yourself with an exhilarating summit of Africa's highest peak, the snowcapped Mt Kilimanjaro; and then escape to the unforgettable island of Zanzibar, where you can unwind on breathtaking beaches and wander the labyrinthine streets of Stone Town, soaking up Swahili culture and trawling busy markets for spices, baskets and textiles.

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of our Tanzania programs. Our adventures provide a true wilderness experience by viewing wildlife in their natural habitat and supporting the protection of endangered wildlife species, diverse environments and local communities.

Authentic experiences

From summiting Mount Kilimanjaro to witnessing the great migration herds in the Serengeti and experiencing the tribal cultures to watching the sunset over the waters of Zanzibar, our programs are designed to give you a true sense of Tanzania's geographic and cultural diversity.

Ultimate value

Featuring quality safari accommodation and wilderness camps, enthusiastic camping crews and porters and private vehicles, our Tanzania adventures provide exceptional value for money. Additionally, we aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the tour cost such as most meals, transferes, game drives, camping services, excursions and national park fees.

Experienced local guides

Our excellent trekking guides and camping crews are what make your Tanzania experience special. While our safari guides are skilled in highly skilled at spotting wildlife, our ratio of 2 clients to 1 guide on Kilimanjaro climbs means you will receive the best personal attention and encouragement on the mountain.


 

Guide development

Since 2012 we have sponsored a guide every year to complete a scholarship training course through the Kilimanjaro Guide Scholarship Foundation.

Waste disposal and plastic reduction

We carry all of our waste from camp and dispose of it responsibly in the nearest city. Additionally, reusable containers store food our food.

Encouragment of women guides

We actively encourage women to break the male dominated world of guiding. While we have two female guides on Mount Kilimanjaro, we also have a number of female kitchen crew and mountain porters.


Safari lodges

In game parks, national parks and rural locations we use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area. Some may have extra facilities such as a swimming pool or private balcony.

Permanent safari camps

Like a tented hotel room, this is the perfect way to experience the African wilderness. We use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area.

Camping

We offer two styles of camping; fully supported and semi-participation. Both styles feature quality two person tents erected in scenic wilderness.

Hotels

In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star, twin share properties that are centrally located, comfortable and reliable.

Mountain huts

Some treks feature camping in a communal dormitory with basic shared facilities.
