Our safaris will introduce you not only to the wildlife but also to Tanzanian daily life. “Safari means to travel in Swahili and you certainly will travel when you join one of our tours.
If you can spare 2 weeks why not combine both experiences. You will also contribute (10% of the cost of the tour goes to our charity fund) to helping the water conservancy and education programmes. Our Safari Leader is Mkulu (Goodluck). Goodluck has 20 years experience+ driving in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire Wildlife parks.
Goodluck knows these parks and their wildlife extremely well and you will learn in the space of 5 to 7 days so much on wildlife, fauna, flora, ecosystems that you will want to return and discover much more again You will see virtually all animals and you might even spot the exceedingly shy black rhino who chooses to roam inaccessible areas.

During this week you will
Visit open markets in Arusha and Moshi, where locals shop for a wide variety of foods and household items. Chungu (earthenware cooking pots) can be bought for a mere £1.50 and make wonderful useful souvenirs.
Also a pair of Katambuga (Massai shoes) cut out of tyres and fashioned to your design/size while you are waiting will cost you £3.00.
You can also join into harvesting, beating and grinding corn, harvesting coffee, watch coconuts being cut from 25m tall coconut tree by an extremely agile and light footed worker. He will then shell them , cut them and for 40p you will experience a drink of “dafu”. We can guarantee that you will spend another 40p for a second coconut!
You will discover Moshi and lake Jibe where you can canoe, watch crocodiles and hippos, fishermen bringing their catch. With a night stay in the Moshi area you will have the next day to enjoy visiting holy grounds, sugar cane being pressed into a mild alcoholic drink. You will have the chance to see craftsmen at work without being asked to purchase any items. We don’t take you to shops/craftshops.
So your second week will provide you with a knowledge and understanding of Tanzanian life.
