We live and breathe the Tanzanian air: we know the country in-and-out, understand the different safari experiences, and are passionate to design a customized safari adventure just for you – always committed to combine your wildlife adventure with a cultural encounter that leave a long-lasting impression on both: you, as our guest, and the local communities surrounding us! Tanzania is Magical & Wild – let’s make your safari matter!

 It all starts with a little inspiration and a chat! We know that it can be overwhelming when you first start your safari planning and there are so many options to consider. But don’t worry – we are here to navigate you through. We will listen to your ideas and craft an adventure that is based on your individual interests and your specific travel month. We will focus on every tiny detail, so that you can lean back and relax! With our deep knowledge about East Africa, we offer tailor-made Tanzania Safaris as well as a range of cross-country combinations to Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda.

Our Tanzania Safaris

Whether you are looking for a classic wildlife experience, a family adventure, a romantic honeymoon, or would like to summit the “Roof of Africa”, we are here to help you navigate through the various options. It all starts with an idea, which is the base for us to design customized Tanzania Safaris – tailored to your requirements and just for you!

Great Wildebeest Migration

Ever dreamed of witnessing the Great Wildebeest Migration up close in the frond-row seat? Our Great Migration Safaris will take you right into the heart of the action as they are designed to follow the wildebeest trails through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem with overnights at the best spots inside parks.

Safari & Beach Combis

Explore Tanzania’s unique landscape and encounter wildlife in their natural habitat on a customized safari on the mainland. Unwind and relax afterwards on Mafia, Pemba or Zanzibar Island – white sand beaches with palm trees and azure blue waters plus an incredible marine underwater world await you here!

Walking & Trekking

Tanzania offers various walking options that can be added to each itinerary. Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro are great trekking challenges but there are also off-the-beaten-path treks through Ngorongoro all the way to Lake Natron. Nature lovers can walk with chimpanzees in Mahale or gorillas in Uganda & Rwanda.

Family Safaris

Take your kids on safari and let them explore the true wonders of Africa. The chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat is a magical and unforgettable experience that will inspire lifelong interest in nature and wildlife. Tanzania is the ultimate family safari & beach holiday destination with so much to discover!

Honeymoon Safaris

Your happily-ever-after starts here with a customized honeymoon safari beyond your wildest dreams! A combination of adventure and relaxation is a great way to de-stress from your wedding! Tanzania is the perfect destination for an unforgettable first trip as a married couple – authentic, intimate & romantic.

Photographic Safaris

Tanzania is a paradise for photographers and you will come across various opportunities to take thrilling pictures! All safaris to Tanzania offer an amazing scenery with fantastic wildlife. But the success of your photographic safari comes with your experienced safari guide who knows where to find the best spots!

We are Tanzania Safari Bug – different than others…


As an adventurous European travel is in my blood! Tanzania is a fascinating country with so much to explore! When I first visited Tanzania, I was completely blown away – not just by the incredible wildlife variety, but also by the cultural diversity and the warthm of the people.

It’s a pleasure to share my insider knowledge and offer first-hand advise. It is quite challenging to explain the passion and dedication we put in every customized safari adventure. But be ensured: the trip we create for you is tailored to your individual needs!


Let me show you my stunning home country and discover the true Tanzania – authentic and up-close with a native at your side! As a Tanzanian myself, I am familiar with the local conditions. With my experience in the bush, I will happily design an itinerary based on your travel interests.

Everything we do, we do it with devotion and a deep passion – dedicated to help our guests to explore the real Tanzania while at the same time supporting the local communities and protecting the Tanzanian wildlife!

Our Tanzania Safari Itineraries

We do not systemize on ‘pre-packaged’ trips, however, to give you a first idea of possibilities, we have put together some sample itineraries. Of course, these can be further adjusted to your needs and budget at any time – just send us a note with your requirements.

If you are looking for a combination of North, South or West in one itinerary, just get in touch and we will advise you on the best possible option and travel modes in between the locations. It is also possible to add-on a visit to the neighbouring countries (Kenya, Rwanda or Uganda).
