Are safaris in Tanzania safe?

Tanzania is one of Africa’s most stable countries. You’ll be welcomed by its friendly people and always taken care of by attentive staff. After full days of wildlife viewing, rest up at lodges, which offer authentic African charm and modern-day conveniences.


What additional costs can I expect when traveling in Tanzania?

Your safari land packages will include all accommodations, meals, water (with meals and on wildlife-viewing drives), airport transfers, park fees and services of guides and drivers. International airfare is not included.

Additional costs may include: tips for your guides, drivers and staff, bar beverages, laundry service, passport and visa fees, souvenirs and travel insurance (if you choose to purchase it).


What is the Great Wildebeest Migration?

The Great Wildebeest Migration is a year-round phenomenon where millions of mammals, mainly wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra, move around the Serengeti in a clockwise pattern in search of food and water. The driving force of the migration is rain, making it difficult to predict.

This happens from June to September (the mammals head Masai Mara) and October to November (Migration return back to Serengeti)


What if I don’t see the Great Migration during my safari?

Hakuna matata! No worries! Plenty of awe-inspiring moments present themselves whenever you travel in Tanzania. Even if you don’t happen to see the Great Migration, you’ll still see an abundance of wildlife.


What’s the food like?

With advanced notice, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and diabetic-friendly meals can easily be arranged. Make sure to inform us when booking your trip.


Will I have a chance to interact with the local people of Tanzania?

Many of our trips provide opportunities to visit local villages and interact with the people. However, if your itinerary does not include these visits, you’ll still gain valuable local insight from your expert guide, a native of Tanzania.


Can i bring children during the safari?

Of course! We think taking your whole family on safari is a wonderful way to learn and grow together; think of the lifelong memories! We recommend a minimum age of six on our family safaris.
