Our step-by-step process to create your safari

1. share your inspiration & speak to us

Your journey begins here! Get inspired by the safari ideas & beach holiday destinations on our website! Then reach out to schedule a call and speak to us for a first-hand expert advice! From here we start planning your safari – covering the basic questions:

  • Where would you like to travel?
  • When would you like to travel?
  • What would you like to see?
  • Focusing on wildlife viewing only?
  • How about cultural encounters or the beach?
  • What about adventures outside the vehicle?
  • Who is travelling?

Whatever your travel dreams are, put them all on the table and we will see how to best combine them!

2. planning & fine-tuning

After we have collected all your thoughts, we will now use our knowledge of the region to design a personalized safari itinerary that is based on your individual travel needs. You will receive a first overview with a day-by-day description, suggested activities and overnight stays, a list of all the inclusions, and a price-quote based on the proposed safari trip.

Afterwards, we will schedule another call to keep on perfecting your safari itinerary – we can adjust the accommodation standard, add in additional activities, extend your trip with some relaxing days at the beach, and so on. We will keep fine-tuning your safari trip until we reach a point where you are completely happy and read to book your customized safari holiday.

3. book your safari

When you are ready to book your safari, we will first reach out to your preferred overnight stays and make a provisional reservation on your behalf. Once your accommodation is secured, we will send you our booking form. Once the form is returned to us, we will share an invoice with all payment details.

Once your deposit payment is received, we will take care of all the details of your safari – confirming your accommodation, booking domestic flights, and making arrangements for your transportation, guide and any other activities during your trip. All you need to do is book your international arrival flight!

In the coming week before your arrival in East Africa, you will receive our pre-arrival informations as well as any update on the entry requirements. Should you have any questions in regards to your trip, you can reach out on Call, Email or Whats App at any time. Get ready and pack for your trip!

4. enjoy & staying in touch

Once you arrive in East Africa, you will be warmly welcomed by your professional Tanzania Safari Bug guide and transferred to your first overnight stay. An office representative will meet with you for the safari briefing which is a great chance to ask any last questions.

From here on: enjoy your trip of a lifetime, knowing that you are in good hands every step of the way. We are reachable 24/7 and will assist you with any questions along the way. If your itinerary allows, we will also see you after your trip for a quick chat!
