Our main office is right at the foot of Mount Meru, about 20 kilometers out of Arusha. Our office faces the peak of Mount Meru, and our coffee breaks are spent on the balcony watching the silver cheeked hornbills fly past and the sun cast its rays on Meru’s peak. We can tell you exactly what is happening in Tanzania, in the national parks, which camps have the best game viewing each month of the year, and when the whale sharks are around Zanzibar.
We have tried and tested your safari for you before you arrive in Tanzania. So when you ask when the best time to go on safari is, we will tell you not only the advantages (and disadvantages) of every season, but we’ll fill you in on those little secrets that only the locals know to make your entire safari unforgettable. How do we do that? Because we operate locally in Arusha, Tanzania and spend our free time exploring ‘Bucketlist’ destinations such as the Serengeti National Park, the magical Ngorongoro Crater or we go for a dive to check...
Game drives are conducted in specially adapted safari vehicles with a roof that ‘pops up’ so you can stand and watch the wildlife from your vantage point. Most have chargers for your camera/laptop/cell phone batteries and cooler-boxes for cold drinks.

I have been in Tarangire many times over the years, but any offer of going again I am very happy to take! The landscape is diverse, from the plains with the huge baobabs, to the riverbed with its palms, and the evergreen marshes! I never get enough of watching the elephants at the river. Actually it was Tarangire National Park which gave me my first taste of birdin...

Years ago I once took a balloon ride over the Serengeti. Really an experience I would not want to have missed in my life. The sound of the burners, the wind in your hair and the absolute fantastic view (and those years were enough to make me forget how incredible cold it was, if you go on balloon safari, please carry a sweater!!! And a good one!) are something I co...

It took me a while to discover Arusha National Park, actually it took until I moved to Arusha to really start to appreciate Arusha National Parks. Now we try to go there as often as we can! For me the main attraction point remains the Momella Lakes,the pink hush of flamingo's lining the lake, the giraffes which walk on the peninsulas in the lake, and much much more...

When I was still working in East Africa as a tour leader, people often asked me if it doesn’t become boring, all these times driving through the serengeti with the same wildlife again and again and again. I was always surprised! How could the plains of the Serengeti dotted with wildebeests ever bore me? How could I get bored watching a baby elephant running through...

I had been to several of the northern parks of Tanzania numerous times already when I got a chance to explore the southern parks. Oh my, that was something I should have done way earlier! Okay I agree, if you want to go for the abundant wildlife, the incredible Great Migration, you should go to the Northern Parks. But if you already visited the Northern Parks, I wo...
