What’s Your Guarantee?

Please see our reviews on-line. We are highly recommended. We strive to you arrange you the best safaris. If a hotel or lodge becomes unavailable due to weather (this is wild Africa remember – floods, rainy seasons and road condition safety is paramount), then we will arrange an alternative. You will be catered for. Remember in Africa, we must leave our Western bustle behind and relax into a new happier pace. ‘Slowly, slowly’ they say and you will enjoy all things Africa has to offer and may even be able to mount Kilimanjaro itself!

Where are you located?

I (Tony) have left the African business to my managers there and gone back home to manage the Oxford office. We also have our operations bases in Dar es Salaam and Arusha at the base of Mount Meru, the hub of Tanzanian safaris.

Any Bundle Discount?

There are discounts for larger goups of 10 and then more discount for over 20. Please book early. Tanzania is becoming the most sought after safari destination in Africa as you are almost guaranteed to see the big 5 and will enjoy the largest abundance of big wildlife found in Africa. The top hotels sell out quick, so book now.

How Long are the safaris?

We can tailor make a trip of any length of time for you. Scheduled departures also exist of 6 days, 8 days, 10, and 12 days. You can spend 6 days on safari then climb Kilimanjaro. Then you can fly or take the speed ferry hopping over to Zanzibar and recuperate on the white sandy beaches and swim in the most azure waters you might ever see.
