Cultural safaris

As one of Africa’s safest destinations to travel Tanzania offers plenty of unique adventures with spectacular scenic backdrops of savannah or mountain forest and some of the firendliest people on earth. Over 120 different tribes coexisting in harmony, waterfalls drop down from Africa’s highest peak and plenty of nature and mountains cover the countries landscape ensuring maximum possibilities for all to experience.

Tanzania has been our home for many generations and we carefully select our cultural and tribal interactions and like to avoid mass tourist experiences or encounters that damage the locals that are visited. Tours (where possible) are always booked through local community cultural programs to ensure a safe, controlled and fair experience for all.

Whether you are coming for wildlife, mountains or beach; the rich history and culture can be a great way to maximise your time in Tanzania, to interact with locals and also for you to stretch those legs on long and bumpy journeys around the circuits.
