Private or Shared Safari

You have decided where you want to go on safari and now you have two important questions for your safari

 A Private Tanzania Safari means that you alone hire the safari vehicle and the safari guide. The benefit of this is you get to make choices on the smaller day to day decisions – like when to start in the morning and what to concentrate on that day. You make all the choices with some recommendations from your tour operator and daily with your safari guide.

 The obvious main difference on a private safari is the cost – these are much more expensive but really do give a totally different safari experience. Our guides have years of experience and know every corner of each and every National Park but at the end of the day on a private safari it is you who decides what to do and where to go.

A Group Safari or a Shared Tanzania Safari is where you are booked on the same Safari itinerary with other people. These groups are usually small (less than 8 people) and obviously the driver has to make compromises for all the guests, meaning ultimately you have less control. The good thing with safari in Tanzania is that it attracts a lot of like minded people – wildlife lovers and adventurers meaning that many of our shared safari guests end up making friends for life. 

Yes! Are you tired of budget awareness? Small groups can be great options. Don’t worry too much about money, and don’t worry about privacy and schedule control? Personal tours can be yours. Either way, contact us today and find the right one for you. Tanzania is waiting.

Camping Safari or Lodge Safari

There are a variety of different ways that you can enjoy your safari adventure in Tanzania.

We have divided the options into 6 levels –

Camping – This can be either within the National Park or at campsites outside the park using simple 2/3 people tents.  This is not like camping as a child – you have a cook who comes with you on these trips – they cook and wash up for you, as well as providing security for your luggage and putting up your tent.

Luxury Camping – the same as above but staying at private campsites within the park. This requires toilet tents and water etc brought to the site. This is for the true adventurer.

Lodge –These safaris use lodges in the tour. These lodges are uusally larger establishments (30+) rooms and can be found inside and outside the park boundary. 

Tented Camp – these Tanzania Safaris use luxury tented camps – these are smaller more personal establishments with usually fewer than 15 rooms. Often you stay in a luxury tent (these are permanent tents with proper furniture) giving that true Out of Africa experience.

Mixed – this is our speciality – mixing camping, lodges and tented camps – it keeps the price down and allows for the perfect mix of adventure and luxury.

Tanzania is waiting for you. Seriously. Right now this large, friendly country on the east coast of Africa teems with sharp-toothed animals, cone-shaped volcanoes, baby-blue oceans, and sandy beaches that beg for your wiggling toes, your piercing eyes, and your thumping heart. From joining a tight-knit group of other adventurers to choosing your own adventure with a private tour, it’s your call.

Nearly all our Tanzania Safaris can use any of the accommodation options above.
