Booking Information

If you have not been on safari with us before please send us the completed pre safari contact form. We will begin the process of matching your needs and expectations with our knowledge and experience in order to come up with the best possible safari itinerary personally crafted for you.

Sometimes an itinerary takes a while to evolve as we like to take the time to help you understand the many exciting options.

Home to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, as well as the protected area of the Selous, Tanzania has the best known wildlife reserves in the world.

The 14,500 square kilometres of the Serengeti National Park is dotted with rock outcrops, scrub and acacia woodland. During the Migration from November to June, there are an estimated 1.5 million wildebeest, 350,000 Thomson’s gazelle and 200,000 common zebra seeking fresh grazing. An awesome sight!

To the east lies one of the most spectacular wildlife haunts in Africa, the vast Ngorongoro Crater. 14.5 kilometres in diameter and 700 metres deep. Ngorongoro is the world’s second biggest caldera. Deep inside the crater you will find all of the Big Five as well as plains game, cheetah, hyaena and wild dog.

Southern Tanzania centres on Ruaha and Katavi National Parks and The Selous Game Reserve. The Selous is Africa’s largest reserve, a massive 55,000 square kilometres of trackless wilderness covered by brachystegia and miombo woodland, palm fringed swamps and sand rivers. Southern Tanzania is Africa at its most raw. The wildlife, unaccustomed to humans, remains skittish. Go quietly and you will be rewarded with sightings of wild dog, large prides of lion, elephant, brindled wildebeest, Liechtenstein's hartebeest, kudu, roan and sable antelope.

In western Tanzania, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, lie two small isolated reserves, the Gombe and Mahale Mountains. Both are home to substantial chimpanzee populations. The montane forest, grassland and alpine bamboo accommodate red colobus monkeys, defassa waterbuck, buffalo and leopard.
