Wildlife and safaris in Tanzania

With some of the worlds’ most famous and iconic safari parks, Tanzania is usually rated the best safari destination in the world. A first time safari can take you into famous 'Discovery channel' destinations such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater, Manyara and Tarangire parks in the Northern circuit where the experience and accommodation are well established suiting any traveller from budget to luxury and highly customisable to suit your travel plan.

We have been taking visitors to the wild since 1986 in our specially modified 4x4 vehicles with a pop roof and a experienced team of quality safari-guides who will make your adventure special. An African safari usually consists of long drives between large National Parks (some larger than countries) and 'game drives' where you explore the parks with the hopes of spotting animals in their natural surroundings at various times of the day. Spectacular scenery and an abundance of wildlife accross all circuits, almost the whole year make this an unforgettable memory.

Those who are hungry for more or looking for off the beaten track experiences can visit the wild Southern circuit with Africa's largest, Nyerere National Park and Ruaha National Park offering wildlife viewing in one of it's most natural forms all with a much smaller quantity of tourist traffic and an abundance of wild animals.
