Home to the highest mountain in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro, a wildlife hotspot and an adventure destination to take your breath away – Tanzania is an explorers dream. 

From the greatest migration on earth to predators and primates, Tanzania is unquestionably the best wildlife safari destination on the planet.

Whether it’s on a mountain bike, a 4×4 Landcruiser, or on foot, we will take you through some of Tanzania most treasured wilderness areas…

And with over 120 tribes, each with their own distinct traditions, Tanzania is a beautiful mix of influences, uniting to create a culturally diverse country.
