Planning your Safari



We customize each itinerary, built from guests’ wishes, desired budget, and our professional recommendations.  Our guests will experience the most ideal destinations, stay in unique accommodations, and travel in ultimate comfort.

The information below can help with planning.  The packages are meant to give you inspiration, can be what we build upon, or we can start your itinerary from scratch! If visiting Tanzania is part of a larger trip planned throughout Africa, we recommend at least 3 days (3-4 nights) and as many as…well, as many days as you would like!

It is possible to spend many days at each destination – so much to see and experience!  It is important to us that guests experience more than just a brief tour and move on to the next destination, but are willing to work with guests preferences.  The number of days you have to spend in the country will help determine the number of destinations you can visit during your safari.
